Katie Holmes to spend the summer filming in Melbourne
Hollywood actress Katie Holmes will star in the forthcoming thriller Donâ€™t Be Afraid Of The Dark, which will begin filming in Melbourne this summer.
The multi-million dollar project, scripted by critically acclaimed Guillermo del Toro, centres on a girl who moves into a new home with her father and his girlfriend but eventually discovers that they are sharing the house with devilish creatures. It is based on a 1973 TV movie.
Film Victoria has revealed that Melbourne was a natural choice for Donâ€™t Be Afraid Of The Dark because of the cityâ€™s gothic locations.
Katie Holmes is the first name to sign up in the movie and will play the lead role. The film is set for a 2011 release.
