THE WRIGHT DIRECTOR FOR NIGHTFALL
Variety reports that Geoffrey Wright, the Australian director of the underappreciated slasher CHERRY FALLS, will helm the sci-fi/horror film NIGHTFALL. Aussie outfit Mushroom Pictures, co-producers of the brutal crime drama CHOPPER (which launched the career of TROY?s Eric Bana), is teaming with Britain?s The Spice Factory on this project, which is about backpackers terrorized by an alien creature. Martin (CUT) Fabinyi, Michael Cowan and Jason Piette are the producers. Wright?s credits also include the acclaimed skinhead drama ROMPER STOMPER; in addition, he was the first director on the troubled sci-fi/horror epic SUPERNOVA.
