The Guillermo Del Toro-produced remake of Don't Be Afraid of the Dark is the debut feature of director Troy Nixey, best known for Latchkey's Lament, a short film he made a while back. It obviously impressed Guillermo. Check out the awesome trailer!
Del Toro and Matthew Robbins co-wrote the Don't Be Afraid of the Dark screenplay. It's also the comeback feature of Katie Holmes, who was recently snapped on the set of the film in full-on "distressed woman" mode -- which is in character, as she plays a woman haunted by evil gnomes that live in her home. The film is currently filming in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
Here's the paparazzi pic that turned up on ABC News. Don't Be Afraid of the Dark is set to be released in 2011.
