Michael Eklund (“The Call”) and Brandon Sexton (“Boys Don’t Cry”) have rounded out the cast of the psychological thriller “Dark,” with shooting set for late June in New York.

Nick Basile (“American Carny”) will direct from a script written by Elias (“Gut”).

Kathryn Belli, Dave Boulton, Basile, and Elias will produce alongside executive producer Joe Dante (“Gremlins”) and his company Renfield Productions.

Whitney Able (“Monsters”) and Alexandra Breckenridge (“American Horror Story”) lead the cast. Able stars as a disturbed young woman who must confront her worst fears when she finds herself trapped alone in a New York City loft during the 2003 blackout.

Minerva Pictures is selling “Dark” to international buyers at Cannes.
