Katie Holmes on the Set of 'Don't Be Afraid of the Dark'   

July 14, 2009 The Guillermo Del Toro-produced remake of "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" is the debut feature of director Troy Nixey, best known for a short film he made a while back that obviously impressed Guillermo. It's also the comeback feature of Katie Holmes, who was recently snapped on the set of the film in full-on "distressed woman" mode -- which is in character, as she plays a woman haunted by evil gnomes that live in her home.

Here's the paparazzi pic that turned up on ABC News. "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" isn't set to be released until way out in 2011. Maybe the original 1973 TV movie it's based upon will get a release in that time? Don't count on it.
