Sam Shepard (pictured above; “Killing Them Softly,” “Mud”), Don Johnson (Django Unchained) and Vinessa Shaw (below; Two Lover) have joined lead Michael C. Hall (“Dexter,” “Killing Them Softly”) in Cold in July, Jim Mickle’s follow-up to We Are What We Are, Variety reports.
Co-written by Mickle’s regular co-scribe, Nick Damici, Cold adapts Joe R. Lansdale’s cult-classic novel.
A crime thriller, “Cold on July turns on Richard Dane, a small town frame builder from East Texas who kills a burglar in self-defense. The dead man’s father swears revenge: A son’s life for a son’s life.
But the two guilt-stricken fathers become unlikely allies, aided by Dane’s tough-minded wife and a pig-raising detective from the Houston backwoods, as they discover a bigger secret, darker and more dangerous than any of them could have imagined.”
Hall plays Dane, Shepard and Johnson his sidekicks and Shaw his wife.
Shooting from July, Cold for July will be ready for delivery early 2014.
