Vanishing On 7th Street - Could if be the next Happening or will it be good?

This is one of those interesting sounding concepts that could end up as a poor mans Twilight Zone if it is not done correctly.

John Leguizamo and Thandie Newton have been confirmed with Timothy Olyphant and Forest Whitaker to star. Brad Anderson (Session 9 , Trans Siberian, The Wire)

Following a mysterious blackout, most of the population vanishes into thin air. As the remaining survivors converge in a small tavern to figure out what happened, the darkness returns to claim them one by one.

I remember walking around Chicago with Jinja during Thanksgiving and that seemed totally deserted on many of the streets we walked down. That was very spooky on such a sunny day so this has the potential to be very odd and memorable.

The concept also reminds me of Phantoms (Ben Affleck was the bomb in that), John Carpenter's In the Mouth of Madness, the opening of 28 Days Later and The Langoliers. Can you think of anything to add to the mix?
