Black Fawn Films and Breakthrough Entertainment Inc., the filmmaking team behind such genre hits as I’ll Take Your Dead, Let Her Out, and Antisocial, have released a new trailer and poster for their newest collaboration, The Oak Room, a dark thriller set in a remote and winter-ravaged Canadian town.
During a raging snowstorm, a drifter returns home to the blue-collar bar located in the remote Canadian town where he was born. When he offers to settle an old debt with a grizzled bartender by telling him a story, the night’s events quickly spin into a dark tale of mistaken identities, double-crosses, and shocking violence.
RJ Mitte (“Breaking Bad”) stars in the lead role opposite character actor Peter Outerbridge (Suicide Squad, “V-Wars) and rising star Ari Millen. The cast also includes Martin Roach (The Shape of Water, Diary of the Dead, “The Expanse”), Nicholas Campbell (“Black Mirror”, Antiviral, Da Vinci’s Inquest), David Ferry (The Boondock Saints, Legion, “Hell on Wheels”), and Amos Crawley (The Virgin Suicides, Private Eyes).
Director Cody Calahan teamed up with writer Peter Genoway to adapt Genoway’s stage play The Oak Room into the feature-length film. The original stage production took home first-place honors at the Toronto Fringe Festival in the prestigious “New Play Contest” category while also being selected as a Patron’s Pick (Theatre Passe Muraille’s top box office earner).
Chad Archibald, Cody Calahan, and Ari Millen produced the film, with cinematography by Jeff Maher who also co-produced the project. Christopher Giroux acted as associate producer on the film while Ira Levy, Nat Abraham, Michael McGuigan, and Mark Myers serve as executive producers. The Oak Room was made with the support of partnerships with William F. Whites, Panavision Canada, and Redlab.
The Oak Room comes to VOD on April 2, 2021.
