Michael Garza is going Dark next year…
CBS Films/eOne’s feature take on Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, starring the 18-year-old Latino actor, will open on August 9 next year.
From Oscarwinner Guillermo del Toro, who is co-writing and producing, the film is being directed by André Øvredal.
The movie centers on a group of young teens who must solve the mystery surrounding sudden and macabre deaths in a small town. The film is based on Alvin Schwartz’s young adult novel series, which del Toro has long been a fan of and owns ten of the books’ original illustrations by Stephen Gammell.
del Toro wrote with Daniel Hageman & Kevin Hageman, and the Shape of Water filmmaker is producing with Sean Daniel, Elizabeth Grave, Jason F. Brown, and J. Miles Dale.
In addition to Garza, who starred in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and Wayward Pines, the film also stars Zoe Colletti, Gabriel Rush, Austin Abrams, Dean Norris, Gil Bellows, Lorraine Toussaint, Austin Zajur and Natalie Ganzhorn.
