Production kicks off this weekend.

Josh Hamilton (‘J. Edgar,’ ‘Away We Go’) has landed the male lead opposite Keri Russell in the upcoming supernatural thriller ‘Dark Skies,’ reports Variety.

The story centres on “a suburban couple whose lives become a nightmare when a terrifying alien presence enters their home each night to prey upon their children. Increasingly isolated from sceptical friends and neighbours, the couple is forced to take matters into their own hands to save their family.”

‘Priest’ and ‘Legion’ helmer Scott Stewart is in the director’s chair, working from his own screenplay.
