David Slade (30 Days of Night) is set to direct an adaptation of Norman Partridge’s horror novel Dark Harvest, and Jeremy Davies (Hannibal) and Elizabeth Reaser (The Haunting of Hill House) have joined the cast!
Also starring in the film are Luke Kirby (No Man of God), Casey Likes (The Birch), and Emyri Crutchfield (Fargo). Michael Gilio is writing the adaptation, which is currently slated to release on September 9th, 2022. Here’s the official synopsis:
“Every fall in a small Midwestern town, a supernatural spectre rises from the cornfields and makes its way toward the town’s church, where violent gangs of teenage boys hungrily await their chance to confront the legendary nightmare in an annual harvest rite of life and death. Richie Shepard lives in the shadow of his big brother who won last year’s Run and earned his ticket out of town. To prove himself and join his brother, Richie pairs up with Kelly Haines, a restless dreamer who will do whatever it takes to escape this dead-end town. Against the rules and the odds, Richie and Kelly decide to hunt down the legendary nightmare to win the Run and their freedom, together.”
