"Near Dark" to Be the First Work of Platinum-Rogue Deal



"Near Dark" will be the first film feature to come out as part of the three-year deal between Platinum Dunes and Rogue Pictures.

A remake project of the 1987 film of the same title, "Near Dark" is confirmed to be the first film feature coming out from the joint venture between Platinum Dunes and Rogue Pictures. The two companies have just reached a three-year first-look deal to make fright fare budgeted under $25 million with Platinum's execs Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, and Andrew Form producing.

Revolving around a cowboy wooed into joining a roving band of vampires, the project has already tapped music director Samuel Bayer to helm based on script penned by Matt Venne. Production is slated to begin early next year with Charles Meeker and Amy Kaufman also serving as producers.

Platinum and Rogue previously have joined forces to bring up "The Hitcher" to the surface. A remake of the 1986 movie starring Rutger Hauer and Jennifer Jason Leigh, the flick is slated to open in theaters on April 13, 2007. Cast includes Zachary Knighton, Sophia Bush, and Sean Bean who plays the mysterious hitchhiker.
