Taylor Sheridan is riding a wave of buzz this week. Having already garnered praise with screenwriting credits on critical hit thrillers like Denis Villeneuve’s Sicario and David McKenzie’s Hell Or High Water, his own directorial debut appears to be nothing short of a step up in caliber with Wind River following its screening at Sundance and January, and its amply-received Un Certain Regard screening at Cannes this month.
WIND RIVER is a chilling thriller that follows a rookie FBI agent (Elizabeth Olsen) who teams up with a local game tracker with deep community ties and a haunted past (Jeremy Renner) to investigate the murder of a local girl on a remote Native American Reservation in the hopes of solving her mysterious death. Written and directed by Taylor Sheridan, WIND RIVER also stars Gil Birmingham, Jon Bernthal, Julia Jones, Kelsey Asbille, and James Jordan.
The Weinstein Company acquired the rights to the film a little under a few weeks ago and now presents our first official trailer ahead of its August 4 release. Take a look!
