Some of you guys may remember the teaser trailer we showed you a few months back for SCENIC ROUTE which featured a bat shit crazy Josh Duhamel with one hell of a haircut. It immediately grabbed our attention due to the fact that it's a surprising role for Duhamel who looks to put on a kick ass performance in the Kevin & Michael Goetz-directed film.
Vertical Entertainment has just acquired all U.S. rights to the thriller, starring Josh Duhamel and Dan Fogler at the 2013 Cannes International Film Festival. The film marks Kevin and Michael Goetz directorial debut from a screenplay by Kyle Killen. SCENIC ROUTE first premiered at the 2013 SXSW Film Festival to strong reviews and will be released theatrically in August 2013.
Mitchell (Josh Duhamel) and Carter (Dan Fogler), life-long friends who have drifted apart, are on a road trip when their old pickup breaks down, leaving them stranded on an isolated desert road. Nobody can pick apart a man like his best friend, and as the relentless elements of the desert grind them down, they start to attack each otherís life decisions with unwavering brutality. As they question who they are and who they could have been, their agitation leads to physical confrontation and ultimately knife-wielding madness, and what begins as an inconvenience becomes a very real life or death struggle.
