Actress Angelina Jolie has joined as lead of Taylor Sheridan's Those Who Wish Me Dead.
The film, described as a "neo-western," began principal photography in May 2019, with Nicholas Hoult, Jon Bernthal, and Tyler Perry also joining the cast.
According to Variety:
"In the novel, the story follows a 14-year-old boy who witnesses a brutal murder, is issued a false identity and hidden in a wilderness skills program for troubled teens while the killers are slaughtering anyone who gets in their way in a methodical quest to reach him."
Sheridan is writing and directing his own script, based on Michael Kortya’s bestselling novel, previously adapted by Charles Leavitt and Michael Koryta. The project has secured financing through New Line Cinema and Creative Wealth Media. Worldwide distribution and marketing is set via New Line's parent company, Warner Bros. Pictures.
