This is Palme d’Or winning filmmaker Jacques Audiard first English film. The dark comedic western stars Joaquin Phoenix, John C. Reilly, Jake Gyllenhaal and Riz Ahmed. Annapurna Pictures has domestic rights to the Why Not Productions picture and will release it later this year. It is based on Patrick deWitt’s novel of the same name published in 2012.
It follows siblings Eli and Charlie Sisters who are hired to kill a prospector who has stolen from their boss. The story, a genre-hybrid with comedic elements, takes place in Oregon in 1851.
