ALONE IN THE DARK OPENING

The game-to-film adaptation of Alone in the Dark is currently shooting up in Vancouver with Christian Slater starring as paranormal investigator Edward Carnby. Hottie Tara Reid co-stars as female anthropologist Aline Cedrac.

Dark is directed by German filmmaker Uwe Boll (House of the Dead).

The film's story is based on Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare and will follow Carnby to Shadow Island. While attempting to solve the unexplained death of a friend, he teams up with Reid's character and the two ultimately discover a gateway to hell.

What hasn't been previously reported is the following scoop on the film's opening sequence (beware of slight spoilers)...

A source close to the production tells IGN FilmForce that the film begins with a young boy, around 10, being chased through a forest at night ? pursued by a creature of unknown origin. Terrified, the boy runs towards a bright light in the forest... the creature stops in its tracks.

Flash-forward a few hours... police officers are shining their flashlights around in the forest... searching. Cut to a nearby orphanage where we witness a conversation between two police officers revealing that all twenty children from the home have gone missing. One of the nuns that works there tells them, 'After the power went out, I went to check on the children. But their beds were empty. Every one of them. They just disappeared...'

An officer searches the nearby woods and discovers an electrical service shed with a bright light over the entrance. Inside he finds the young boy crouching in the corner and approaches... 'Are you okay, son? Are the others around?' The boy answers, 'I don't know. I don't remember.' 'Why don't we start with your name?,' asks the deputy. 'Do you remember your name?' 'Edward,' he says. 'Edward Carnby.'

Needless to say, the rest of the film takes place roughly twenty years in the future, but this flashback scene seems to set up the story.

Artisan has Alone in the Dark set for a 2004 release, to coincide the launch of a new Alone in the Dark game.
