June 30, 2009 Another horror remake on the horizon is the Guillermo del Toro-produced redo of the classic TV film "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark."
Pearce and Bailee Madison have both joined the cast of the film, which is set to start shooting in July. Pearce plays an author whose daughter (Madison) discovers dangerous monsters in their home. Katie Holmes is playing Pearce's girlfriend.
The 1973 TV film remains a mega-classic unavailable on DVD, although it did make its way to VHS in the '80s.
