While David Slade had a huge hit with Twilight: Eclipse, since then he’s stuck to TV, such as the pilot of Awake and the upcoming Hannibal Lecter series. However he’s now set to direct the upcoming psychological thriller, Villain, written by Joshua Zetumer (RoboCop).
Villain follows two brothers as they confront their dark past in an unforgiving wilderness. There’s no info on exactly how they brothers get into the Alaskan wastes or any other details of the plot. Filmmakers are currently casting for the two lead roles.
It’s not Slade’s first Alaskan set tale, as he made the great little vampire movie, 30 Days Of Night, set up in the Arctic circle when bloodsuckers descend on a town when it’s plunged into darkness for a month.
