Starring Joel Kinnaman, Tom Holland, Percy Hynes-White, and Rachelle LeFevre, “Backcountry,” marks the feature directorial debut of BAFTA winner Rob Connolly. The emotional psychological thriller wrapped production in March in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada.
“Kyle Mann wrote the script and will produce the movie, which is being co-produced by Michael Risley. Executive producers are Jeff Sackman and Jonathan Bronfman.
“I think the characterization of the single father is given a new dimension in this film,” said Mann. “We’re shooting in the wilderness; we’re in snow country which already brings a level of authenticity to the story. And I’m confident that with Rob Connolly, who is such an exciting new talent, directing our amazing cast, the nuances of these complex relationships will come to light.”
“Backcountry” is produced by Drive Productions in association with JoBro Productions and Tajj Media which holds worldwide distribution rights. ”
