We've been stoked about director Jim Mickle's adaptation of Joe Lansdale's COLD IN JULY ever since we first heard about the project last year and was excited to learn that genre fave IFC had acquired the Michael C. Hall-starring flick back in January. Now we've learned that COLD IN JULY is set to hit theaters and VOD a couple of months earlier than its title suggests, releasing in May!
Fangoria is reporting that IFC Films has given a May 23 theatrical and VOD release date for Mickle's COLD IN JULY, so mark your calendars!
Our very own Chris Bumbray got to peep COLD IN JULY at Sundance, describing it as "the most purely-entertaining film this year's edition of the fest has yet to offer" in his review HERE. The retro-styled thriller revolves around...
...an ordinary small town man whose life is changed when he kills a burglar who breaks into his home. However, it turns out the man he killed is the son of a fearsome convict, recently released from prison, and he'll have to protect his family from the ex-con seeking revenge.
The film also stars Don Johnson, Sam Shepard and Vinessa Shaw.
