Last year we learned Castle Rock Entertainment is returning to Wind River for Wind River: The Next Chapter. Production kicked off in January with Kari Skogland (The Falcon and the Winter SoliderThe Handmaid’s Tale) directing from a script written by Patrick Massett and John Zinman. After several notable casting announcements, the anticipated sequel is thrilled to announce a list of exciting actors joining the cast. According to DeadlineWind River alum Gil Birmingham will reprise his role as Martin, with Alan Ruck (SuccessionTwister), Kali Reis (Catch the Fair One), and Tatanka Means (Killers of the Flower Moon) also joining the cast.

Taylor Sheridan (YellowstoneTulsa King) directed and wrote the original Wind River, focusing on a veteran hunter who helps an FBI agent investigate the murder of a young woman on a Wyoming Native American reservation. Starring Jeremy Renner (Mayor of KingstownHawkeye), Elizabeth Olsen (WandaVisionIngrid Goes West), Graham Greene (The Green MileDances With Wolves), and Sensmeiser, Wind River invites audiences into a bone-chilling mystery against a picturesque yet dangerous backdrop.

In Wind River: The Next Chapter, terror comes to the Wind River reservation as a series of ritualistic murders go unsolved. Desperate to solve the case, the FBI turns to Wind River local Chip Hanson (Sensmeiser), a newly-minted tracker for the U.S. Fish & Game, who becomes wrapped up in a frantic and vicious battle between the cops, a vigilante, and the Reservation he helps protect.

Matthew George is producing Wind River: The Next Chapter for Castle Rock Entertainment and Acacia Filmed Entertainment alongside Basil Iwanyk and Erica Lee through Thunder Road Pictures. Castle Rock’s Rob Reiner will executive produce with Michele Reiner, Derrick Rossi, Jonathan Fuhrman, Courtney Shepard, and Hernan Narea.

Jason Clarke (Zero Dark ThirtyPet Sematary), Scott Eastwood (Suicide SquadThe Fate of the Furious), and Chaske Spencer (The Twilight SagaShouting Secrets) also star. There are no details about who the new cast members will play. Still, we’ll watch out and let you know if anything breaks.
