Details on New Heart of Darkness Adaptation

Written by Nick Workman October 25, 2011

Details and concept art of the anticipated Peter Cornwell (the Haunting in Connecticut) adaptation of Joesph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness have been released. The most famous adaptation ┬áto date of Heart of Darkness is Francis Ford Coppola‘s Apocalypse Now, which shifted the setting from the Belgian Congo to the Vietnam War. Cornwell’s new adaptation seems to be taking influence from Coppola and once again shifting the setting from the Belgian Congo.

APOCALYPSE 2388. Earth is on the brink of extinction. Legendary explorer KURTZ has been sent on a desperate last bid mission to scout an unknown planet on the far side of the universe. A planet that may sustain human life.

But communication with Kurtz mysteriously ceases and rookie flight officer MARLOW is assigned the perilous task of completing the objective. Tracking Kurtz into the unknown he reaches it. A new earth. And a race of beings at the dawn of time.

But Kurtz has his own plans for the new world and man’s last hope for survival. And to achieve it he will take man to the only place that will protect paradise. Into darkness.

The movie is in pre-production and is expected to be completed by 2013.
