Courtesy of Empire, we have the first look at director Jeremy Saulnier’s Hold the Dark. It’s a tame first image, but don’t let that fool you. Saulnier has confirmed that this film will have his highest ever body count. Considering that this is coming from the director of Green Room, that’s quite something.
Hold the Dark will follow a wolf expert who heads to the Alaskan town of Keelut, where it is believed wolves are behind the disappearance of three children. But, what’s really going on? We’ll have to watch the film to find out.
When speaking about the film and its challenges, Saulnier has said:
“It has my record number of intimate dialogue scenes and my highest body count. It has my first war scene, my first aerial sequence, my first time working extensively with animals. So in that regard it was a huge challenge.”
Hold the Dark is based on the novel written by William Giraldi and stars Jeffrey Wright, Alexsander Skarsgard and Beckham Crawford. The film will land on Netflix on 28th September, so there’ll be no need to leave your house if you want to watch this one. But, is that a good thing?
