IFC Midnight will be releasing Trevor Ryan’s debut feature Welcome to Willits in theaters later this month. Directed by Trevor Ryan, the film was written by his brother Tim Ryan, based on their award-winning 2015 short film Welcome to Willits: After Sundown.
The cast is quite impressive and includes Bill Sage, Chris Zylka, ‘Z Nation’ actress Anastasia Baranova, Sabina Gadecki, Garrett Clayton, actor-writer-director Thomas Dekker, Rory Culkin, Karrueche Tran, Keelin Woodell, and action star Dolph Lundgren.
In Welcome to Willits, “a local pot farmer Brock (Sage) is caught up with a wayward group of campers, the situation quickly escalates into total carnage. Together with a ragtag crew including his wife Peggy (Gadecki), niece Courtney (Baranova), scruffy drifter Possum (Culkin), wannabe singer/songwriter Zack (Clayton), resourceful good old boy Jeremiah (Zylka), unemployed stoner Klaus (Dekker), Klaus’ naïve girlfriend Besh (Tran) and ditsy sorority girl Cassie (Woodell), Brock struggles to maintain his sanity while defending his family from perceived supernatural threats. Dolph Lundgren portrays Derek, a weathered police officer from Brock’s past who comes back to haunt him.“
Jordan Yale Levine, Scott Levenson, Shaun Sanghani of SSS Entertainment, and Jon Keeyes of Yale Productions are producing with Matthew Helderman, Luke Taylor, Patrick DePeters of BondIt Media Capital, Michael Rothstein, Brandon Baker and Serge Levin serving as executive producers.
Welcome to Willits will open in theaters and arrive on Digital HD on September 22, 2017, from IFC Midnight.
