Tribeca Film and Well Go USA Entertainment have not only just picked up A Single Shot, they've also already decided on a release date. The thriller which debuted at the Berlin Film Festival will be arriving in theaters on September 20, 2013 (and on August 20th for those of you who prefer to watch it at home on demand).
Author Matthew F. Jones adapted his book for the screen with Janie Jones helmer David M. Rosenthal directing. The cast is led by Sam Rockwell (soon to be seen in my favorite movie of the year: The Way, Way Back) and features William H. Macy, Jeffrey Wright, Jason Isaacs and Kelly Reilly.
The official synopsis: "Rosenthal's [thriller] starts with a bang: a single shot, aimed at a lone deer, that hits and kills a young woman. The hunter, John Moon (Rockwell), watches her die before discovering a box of money near her body. In a desperate panic, he takes the cash -- hiring a low-rent lawyer (Macy) to fight his wife's (Reilly) divorce suit -- and attempts to cover up the killing. But when he discovers that the money belonged to a group of hardened criminals, the hunter becomes the hunted in this tense cat-and-mouse struggle in the backwoods of West Virginia."
