There’s a new thriller on the horizon titled BACKCOUNTRY, and no, it has nothing to do with bears. This BACKCOUNTRY, directed by Rob Connolly, will star The Killing’s Joel Kinnaman and was written and produced by Kyle Mann (PUSH, CAPOTE) and co-produced by Michael Risley with executive producers Jeff Sackman and Jonathan Bronfman. Read on for all the goods!
“I think the characterization of the single father is given a new dimension in this film,” says Mann. “We’re shooting in the wilderness; we’re in snow country, which already brings a level of authenticity to the story. And I’m confident that with Rob Connolly, who is such an exciting new talent, directing our amazing cast, the nuances of these complex relationships will come to light.”
What it’s about:
Elliot Baker seizes the chance to develop a better relationship with his sons when his ex-wife, Karen, and her new husband take a vacation and leave the boys with him. What starts as a bonding opportunity turns into a nightmarish adventure when they get stranded in a deserted cabin near the lake as night falls and a snowstorm rages. Bradley, 15, and Caleb, 12, quickly learn more about their father and what they truly mean to him in this gripping tale of family and survival.
BACKCOUNTRY also stars Tom Holland and Percy Hynes-White. More on this one as we get it!
