Troy Nixey on casting Bailee
Troy Nixey, the director of "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark", talked about what the casting process for the movie was like. He mentions little miss Bailee and I thought you'd all be interested in reading this:
Q: Can you talking about the process of choosing the cast, especially actors like Katy Holmes and Guy Pearce?Troy: We went to them very early – Katie Holmes and Guy Pearce and Bailee Madison. Bailee was probably the toughest one. I think we saw every girl age 8 to 9 in North America. She came along towards the end. She had been working on another movie. When she walked into the room, you just knew immediately there was something about her. She’s just so engaging and so talented. Bringing Katie on, she has this maternal instinct that is so strong. I think she is going to really surprise a lot of people in this movie. It was a risk for her to take something like this and the level that she brought to this movie was [amazing]. It makes your job easier when you have an actor like that who gets the character and she just gives it to you every day. And Guy Pearce is a consummate professional who is so prepared. He’s just a fantastic actor to work with. I mean, they were all different in terms of their approach but they just worked together so well.Source

"Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark" Longer Synopsis
Unfortunately, we haven't been able to find the "Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark" trailer and clip shown at Comic-Con a few days ago. I've been reading a few blogs and articles, and people were very impressed with what was shown. The movie is rated R, not because there is any profanity or nudity in it, but because it's just too scary. Anyways, I was able to find a longer synopsis for the movie, which you can read below:
Sally Hurst (Bailee Madison), a lonely, withdrawn child, has just arrived in Rhode Island to live with her father Alex (Guy Pearce) and his new girlfriend Kim (Holmes) at the 19th-century mansion they are restoring. While exploring the sprawling estate, the young girl discovers a hidden basement, undisturbed since the strange disappearance of the mansion’s builder a century ago. When Sally unwittingly lets loose a race of ancient, dark-dwelling creatures who conspire to drag her down into the mysterious house’s bottomless depths, she must convince Alex and Kim that it’s not a fantasy—before the evil lurking in the dark consumes them all.
