Stamm’s ‘Darkness’ haunts EFM

HanWay will unveil Winstead starrer

German helmer Daniel Stamm (“The Last Exorcism”) is set to helm psychological thriller “The Darkness,” which HanWay Films will unveil to buyers at the Berlinale this week.

Project will topline Mary Elizabeth Winstead (“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”) as an American student looking after her tutor’s two children in a remote English manor house. She soon comes to believe that she and the children are being haunted when their lives are threatened by mysterious events.

Megan Holley penned the script, while Occupant Entertainment’s Joe Neurauter and Felipe Marino and Management 360’s Ben Forkner will produce.

Genre-specialty banner XYZ Films, whose Gareth Evans helmer “The Raid” has been a critical success at festivals, will exec produce “The Darkness.”

Pic is slated to begin lensing in Europe this summer.

Stamm and Winstead are repped by CAA, which also handles U.S. rights for the pic with HanWay.
