In 1983, a series of increasingly violent bank robberies, counterfeiting operations and armored car heists frightened communities throughout the Pacific Northwest. As baffled law enforcement agents scrambled for answers, a lone FBI agent (Law), stationed in the sleepy, picturesque town of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, came to believe the crimes were not the work of traditional, financially motivated criminals, but a group of dangerous domestic terrorists, inspired by a radical, charismatic leader (Hoult), plotting a devastating war against the federal government of the United States.
This is fertile ground for Kurzel, known for moody crime drama-thrillers such as Snowtown, Nitram and True History Of The Kelly Gang.
Production will begin in May 2023 in Alberta, Canada. CAA Media Finance is representing North America.
AGC is producing with Bryan Haas of Chasing Epic Pictures and Jude Law’s Riff Raff Entertainment.
Haas, Law and Ford will produce the Pacific Northwest-set crime thriller with Kurzel, Ben Jackson and Stephen Fuss of Riff Raff Entertainment, Baylin, Kate Susman, Jeremy Saulnier and Zach Garrett of AGC Studios as executive producers.
Law can soon be seen as iconic character, Captain Hook, in David Lowery’s Peter Pan & Wendy for Disney+ and Henry VIII opposite Alicia Vikander’s Queen Catherine Parr in the historical thriller Firebrand. He is currently in production on Star Wars: Skeleton Crew from director Jon Watts and writer Christopher Ford.
Hoult can currently be seen in in Searchlight’s dark comedy feature The Menu alongside Anya Taylor-Joy and Ralph Fiennes. He has received Emmy and SAG Award nominations for his critically acclaimed role as Peter the Great in the Hulu series The Great opposite Elle Fanning. He will next be seen starring in the Universal feature Renfield opposite Nicholas Cage, in which he plays the title role. He is currently filming Nosferatu directed by Robert Eggers starring opposite Lily Rose-Depp and Bill Skarsgård. Hoult’s production company Dead Duck Films has a first look deal at MRC and Civic Center Media. Under the banner, Hoult will star in and executive produce Wildfire Johnny written by Gianna Sobol.
