Katie Holmes will star in "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark," a thriller for Miramax Films that was scripted by Guillermo del Toro and Matthew Robbins.
Del Toro is producing with Mark Johnson and the film will be directed by del Toro protege Troy Nixey. The film will shoot this summer in Melbourne as a "Guillermo del Toro Presentation."
"Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" is based on a 1973 ABC telepic about a young girl who moves in with her father and his girlfriend and discovers they are sharing the house with devilish creatures.
Del Toro and Johnson are also teamed with Gary Ungar to produce "Hater," an adaptation of the David Moody horror novel that will be directed at Universal by Juan Antonio Bayona ("The Orphanage").

Dark Days For Katie Holmes
I'm not too keen on Holmes being in a horror flick, but if its got Del Toro's name on it, than count me in. The premise for the film also sounds creepy and interesting. It should be fun to watch on the big screen.
