Production designer turned director Tom Hammock makes his feature film debut with THE WELL, an indie thriller set in a post-apocalyptic world starring Haley Lu Richardson. What we have for you today is the film’s very first clip in which we get a taste of what it’s like to survive in the dried up world of THE WELL.
Directed by Hammock and written by Hammock and Jacob Forman, THE WELL goes like this:
At the edge of an expansive barren valley, all that remains of The Wallace Farm for Wayward Youth is a few hollowed-out husks of buildings. Seventeen-year-old Kendal (Haley Lu Richardson) can barely recall when the Oregon valley was still lush. It's been a decade since the last rainfall, and society at large has dried up and blown away. Kendal and the few others that remain barely scrape by, while dreaming of escape. When a greedy water baron lays claim to what little of the precious resource remains underground, Kendal must decide whether to run and hide or bravely fight for the few cherished people and things she has left.
THE WELL also stars Booboo Stewart, Jon Gries, Nicole Fox, Michael McCartney, Michael Welch, Rena Owen, Max Charles, Jacqueline Emerson, Barbara Crampton and Michael Massee.
