The crime thriller is penned by Roberto Patino and centers on a young auto mechanic who is eager to get out of the town where he was born, Cut Bank, Montana. His attempts ”set in motion a series of events that wil change his life, and the life of Cut Bank, forever,” according to an announcement released Tuesday.
CUT BANK will mark the film directorial debut for television director Matt Shakman (Mad Men, Six Feet Under). Said Shankman, “Cut Bank is a clever morality tale, a visceral thriller, and ultimately a surprising story of redemption. John Ford by way of David Fincher. [It] offers a director’s dream – a great visual world and a brilliant collection of characters to populate it.”
