Explore ‘In Darkness’ with Natalie Dormer, Ed Skrein and Anthony Byrne
While the weekend box office is destined to be dominated by a certain scruffy looking Nerf herder, thriller fans will want to check out a smaller release, director Anthony Byrne’s “In Darkness.” Byrne co-wrote the project with his real life fiancee, “Game of Thrones” and “Hunger Games” franchise star Natalie Dormer. She’s joined in front of the camera by Ed Skrein. A “Game of Thrones” veteran himself, Skrein played Deadpool’s first arch-enemy Francis in the Marvel character’s 2016 debut feature. All three sat down with Moviebill and, in the player below, you can check out their thoughts about bringing “In Darkness” to light.
“In Darkness” follows blind pianist Sofia (Dormer) as she overhears a struggle in the apartment above hers that leads to the death of her neighbor Veronique (Emily Ratajkowski). It is the start of a journey that pulls Sofia out of her depth and brings her into contact with Veronique’s father, Milos Radic (Jan Bijvoet), a Serbian businessman accused of being a war criminal. Sofia is drawn into a dangerous world of corruption, police investigations, hitmen and the Russian mafia — a world with links to Sofia’s own hidden past and a path of revenge she has kept hidden until now.
“In Darkness” is now playing in theaters.
