Richard Jenkins (‘The Cabin in the Woods,’ ‘The Visitor’) and Cameron Bright (‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,’ ‘Running Scared ‘) have signed up to lead Charles-Olivier Michaud’s latest drama ‘One Square Mile.’
The drama, penned by scribes Josh Campbell and Jeff Van Wie, is a highly charged, emotional story of 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.
Principal photography on the $5 million production is scheduled to begin in August with Seattle, Washington as a possible location.
