Green Room (2015) achieved a big success a couple of years ago. It was the third film of Jeremy Saulnier, a young american filmmaker who is one of the most promising names in the panorama. Recently it was known that VoD platform Netflix bought the exclusive distrubution rights for his next film, Hold the Dark, expected to see the light next year 2018. The film is based by the book of the same name, written by William Giraldi. The sceenplay is written by actor, writer and producer Macon Blair, long time friend and collaborator of director Jeremy Saulnier, who has starred in all his short and feature films to date.
The action is set in the Alaskan wilderness, where wolves are killing children. A biologist arrives on the scene to investigate and tangles with a dead boy’s dysfunctional parents. The story centers around Vernon Slone, who after arriving home and finding his son dead and his wife missing, goes on a trek to find her, leaving a bloody trail in his wake. The biologist Russell Core studies wolves and investigates their sudden bloodthirsty behavior and with the help of a local police detective try to locate the wife before Vernon can do further harm. This title adds up to the list of intense thrillers from the director, together with Green Room (2015), and that started with the amazing Blue Ruin (2013).
So far, the confirmed cast consists of Alexander Skarsgård, Riley Keough, James Badge Dale, Jeffrey Wright, James Bloor and Julian Black Antelope. Interesting names that surely can bring interesting performances.
Definitely, another attractive exclusive addition to the Netflix catalog, that makes the Video on Demand platform even more essential.
