In Man of Steel, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane played husband and wife as Jonathan and Martha Kent, and they’ll be reteaming as a couple once more in the upcoming Let Him Go.
Deadline reports that the Focus Features suspense thriller is being written and directed by Thomas Bezucha (The Family Stone), an adaptation of the novel by Larry Watson.
“Costner and Lane star as retired sheriff George Blackledge and his wife Margaret who, following the loss of their son, leave their Montana ranch to rescue their young grandson from the clutches of a dangerous family living off the grid in the Dakotas, headed by matriarch Blanche Weboy. When they discover the Weboys have no intention of letting the child go, George and Margaret are left with no choice but to fight for their family.”
Bezucha will produce with Paula Mazur and Mitchell Kaplan of The Mazur Kaplan Company. Costner, Kimi Armstrong Stein, Jeffrey Lampert, and Rod Lake are executive producers.
