Amber Heard and Odette Yustman will become victims of circumstance in their upcoming thriller, And Soon the Darkness. If the title sounds familiar it’s probably because it’s a remake of the 1970 feature of the same name. This update co-stars Karl Urban as a less than stellar acquaintance who may or may not be involved with murder and kidnapping. Check out the photos…
Stephanie (Heard) and Ellie’s (Yustman) vacation to an exotic village in Argentina is a perfect ‘girl’s getaway’ to bask in the sun, shop and flirt with the handsome locals. After a long night of bar-hopping, the girls get into an argument, and Stephanie heads out alone in the morning to cool off. But when she returns, Ellie has disappeared. Finding signs of a struggle, Stephanie fears the worst, and turns to the police for help. But the local authorities have their hands full already – with a string of unsolved kidnappings targeting young female tourists.
Skeptical of the sheriff’s competency, she enlists help from Michael (Urban), an American ex-pat staying at their hotel. Together they go on a frantic search for Ellie, but Stephanie soon realizes that trusting his seemingly good intentions may drag her farther from the truth. With danger mounting, and time running out, Stephanie must find her friend before darkness falls.
