Briefly: It was announced (via Deadline) that Peter Schlessel & Bob Berney's new company FilmDistrict will be releasing Troy Nixey's Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, the Guillermo del Toro-produced horror-thriller with Katie Holmes, Guy Pearce and Bailee Madison. They'll be releasing the film starting on August 12th at the tail end of this summer. Most may remember that this was originally scheduled for January, but Disney's sale of Miramax put the film on hold until further notice - here's that notice! You can still watch the first freaky teaser trailer for Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, so fire that up as we've got six more months to go!
