Here we may have a film where I use the star to generate some interest. THR informs us that Richard Jenkins (The Cabin in the Woods, Step Brothers) will be starring with Cameron Bright (Twilight, Running Scared) in One Square Mile, an indie drama from French-Canadian helmer Charles-Olivier Michaud.
Written by Josh Campbell and Jeff Van Wie, the picture centers on “a disenfranchised teen (Bright) living on the wrong side of the tracks. Desperate for a way out, his life collides with an old reclusive track coach (Jenkins), angry at the world with no purpose in life. The two form a reluctant bond that forces them to face their circumstances as they race to save each other and ultimately – themselves.”
That’s just slightly familiar to another upcoming drama, Life at These Speeds, although I have enough affection for Jenkins not to completely dismiss Mile right off the bat; it should be well acted, and that counts for something. Phoenix Rising Motion Pictures and Inner Primary Entertainment will produce, rights will be sold at Cannes this coming May, and an August shoot is in the cards.
What do you make of One Square Mile at this point? Can Jenkins get you interested?
