Chris Gorak Faces The Darkest Hour

A new alien invasion thriller

In what seems like it might be a refreshing change from the age-old “aliens invade America” trope, New Regency and Summit Entertainment are developing Darkest Hour, a new thriller that sees the interplanetary nasties having a go at Russia instead.

Sure, some movies feature looks at international crises when ET comes calling with weaponry, but thanks to Timur Bekmambetov producing, we’ll get to see what happens to a group of kids as they struggle to survive an attack in Russia.

Right At Your Door director Chris Gorak, a man with some experience shooting nervy thrillers featuring everyday folk in dangerous situations, has signed on to direct, and he’ll work in Russia this June at Bekmambetov’s custom film facility.
