what waits for them in darknessAs for Dunn's sophomore picture - that was announced last December when a casting call was made for the lead in the adventure/fantasy WHAT WAITS FOR THEM IN DARKNESS. The story based in a 1950s Newfoundland resettlement will revolve around a preteen girl named - Skipper Blackwood who is described as an outgoing, adventurous and scrappy tomboy.
