Emmy-winning director David Nutter, who has helmed supernatural material like the TV series The X-Files, has been tapped by New Line Cinema to direct the vampire thriller Darksiders. Penned by Tom Parker and Jim Jennewein, Darksiders revolves around a band of bloodsuckers who are turned into special operatives for the FBI. Given the bloodlust they show for their work, the vampires are closely monitored by the government agency. The project is being produced by Tracie Graham and Alison Rosenzweig, with New Line production execs Kent Alterman and Michelle Weiss overseeing for the studio. Best known as a TV director, Nutter has helmed episodes of such series as ER, Dark Angel, Smallville, the new WB Network series Tarzan as well as X-Files. He won an Emmy for his work directing episodes of the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers and has had the unusual honor of having the past seven TV pilots he has directed picked up. Nutter's most recent feature work was the 1998 thriller Disturbing Behavior. Nutter is repped by Endeavor and Industry Entertainment.
