Starz Digital Media announced they will release Bad Turn Worse (formerly We Gotta Get Out of This Place), the directorial debut of Zeke and Simon Hawkins, in select theaters and on VOD on November 14th.
“After a weekend of partying with stolen money, three Texas teens (Jeremy Allen White, Logan Huffman, and Mackenzie Davis) find themselves indebted to a sociopathic criminal named Giff (Mark Pellegrino in a breakout performance). To repay their debt, Giff forces the teens to steal from his boss, a money-laundering gangster named Big Red (William Devane). Things go from bad to worse when betrayal, distrust, and corruption complicate an already dangerous plan.“
The film features a variety of young rising stars and familiar faces including Jeremy Allen White (Showtime’s “Shameless”, Afterschool), Mackenzie Davis (What If, AMC’S “Halt and Catch Fire”), Logan Huffman (Refuge, ABC’s “V”), Mark Pellegrino (The Big Lebowski, SyFy’s “Being Human”) and William Devane (The Dark Knight Rises, FOX’s “24” & “24: Live Another Day”). Bad Turn Worse was written by “Black List” screenwriter and pop culture T-shirt designer Dutch Southern. Justin Duprie and Brian Udovich produced for Rough & Tumble Films.
Bad Turn Worse premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival before it won the audience award at the 2013 AFI Fest.
