New Regency and Summit are Partnering on Director Chris Gorak’s THE DARKEST HOUR

     March 4, 2010

The films director, Chris Gorak, has only directed one film entitled Right at Your Door which was released in 2006, about the aftermath of a Los Angeles terrorist attack.  However, he has worked as an art director for such films as Minority Report, Fight Club, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and Tombstone, which gives me a bit more confidence about the movie.  The article claims that The Darkest Hour is in the style of 28 Days Later. If that’s the case, I’m all in.  The film is set to start filming in Russia this June.
