Congrats! Production company Straight Up Films (of Transcendence, Jane Got a Gun) will be adapting the nonfiction bestseller Dead Mountain: The Untold True Story Of The Dyatlov Pass Incident by Donnie Eichar, and they've picked up the rights to turn it into a feature film. Attached to write the script is Brandon Lee Tenney, a name you may recognize as he wrote for this site for many years. Brandon is a friend of mine and wrote many articles and reviews for us (find his posts here) before transitioning into a screenwriting career. This is his first major deal as a screenwriter and I'm proud to be able to post this news. Tenney is adapting the book Dead Mountain, which has become a bestseller since its initial release in late 2013. It tells the true story from the 1950s of nine experienced hikers in the Russian Ural Mountains who were found mysteriously dead. »

Another "Dyatlov Pass" Film Coming

13 July 2015 10:51 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Straight Up Films is developing a film based on Donnie Eichar's book "Dead Mountain" which Brandon Lee Tenney has been hired to adapt for the screen.

The story deals with Eichar's five-year probe into the unsolved 1959 deaths of nine experienced hikers in Russia's Ural Mountains - an event also known as the "Dyatlov Pass incident".

Soviet investigators had found that the hikers had torn open their tents and run barefoot out into the snow on a night in February, saying an 'unknown compelling force' had caused the deaths.

Access to the region was subsequently blocked for hikers and adventurers for three years, whilst there has been decades of speculation. Theories range from failed Soviet military experiment to even an alien attack.

"Transcendence" producers Kate Cohen and Marisa Polvino are teaming with Casey Carroll to produce the film. The story was previously the subject of the 2013 film "Devil's Pass" which IFC released in the U. »

Ever since it was first announced in September that a Supergirl TV series is moving forward, fans have wondered which actress will land the title role of Kara Zor-el, the cousin of Superman. While CBS has yet to confirm the series star yet, the tabloid publication The Sun has revealed that British actress Gemma Atkinson is being eyed for the coveted part. The actress, who is the daughter of Mr. Bean star Rowan Atkinson, is reportedly waiting to find out whether or not she has landed the role, but the news has yet to be confirmed at this time.

We reported last month that The Originals star Claire Holt was up for the title role, but just one week later, another report surfaced that the series is no longer interested in the actress. We also reported in October that Kara Zor-El will be 24 years old in the series, with CBS »

Atkinson Up For CBS's "Supergirl" Series

2 January 2015 10:15 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Former "Hollyoaks" star and "Devil's Pass" actress Gemma Atkinson is the latest name rumored to be slipping on the spandex for CBS' upcoming TV series take on "Supergirl".

British tabloid The Sun reported the news and says Atkinson apparently auditioned for the show recently and is "waiting to hear whether she has been cast" in the role of 24-year-old Kara Zor-El.

Greg Berlanti ("Arrow," "The Flash") is producing the series which sports two female leads, the other being Kara's secret government agent foster sister Alex.

Claire Holt ("The Vampire Diaries") was previously rumored for the role, though her name was quickly dismissed due to her commitments to both "The Originals" and "Aquarius". »
