XYZ Films is currently at Cannes shopping the world sales rights for the genre thriller Red River, written by Ronan Blaney (Love Bites) and directed by Gary Shore (Dracula Untold), Deadline says.
Shore says that the film tells the story of “a vampire hell-bent on teaching an isolated town a thing or two about its treatment of outsiders is a valuable reminder that man is capable of being a real monster.”
I love Ronan’s script – heartbreaking, violent and touching all at once.” Shore said. “With influences like High Plaines Drifter, Shane and Let the Right One In, it’s definitely an original in the genre with the potential to be a modern classic.”
Mark Huffman will serve as producer for Red River. There is no word yet on the cast.
