New Line Cinema is teaming up with BRON Studios on the Angelina Jolie-led “Those Who Wish Me Dead.” The film is directed and written by Taylor Sheridan (“Wind River”) from his screenplay based on the bestselling novel by Michael Koryta, which was previously adapted by Charles Leavitt and Michael Koryta.
A female-driven neo-Western set against a wildfire in the Montana wilderness, “Those Who Wish Me Dead” begins principal photography this month.
Along with Jolie, the film stars Nicholas Hoult (“Mad Max: Fury Road,” “The Favourite”), Jon Bernthal (“The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Baby Driver,” “The Walking Dead”), Tyler Perry (the “Madea” franchise, “Vice,” “Gone Girl”), Aidan Gillen (“Game of Thrones,” “Bohemian Rhapsody”), Medina Senghore (“Blindspot”), Finn Little (“Storm Boy”) and Jake Weber (“Homeland,” Netflix’s “13 Reasons Why”).
Sheridan will produce alongside Garrett Basch, Steven Zaillian, with Aaron L. Gilbert and Kevin Turen producing for BRON Studios. Jason Cloth of Creative Wealth Media, Kathryn Dean and Michael Friedman are also executive producers.
“Those Who Wish Me Dead” is produced by Film Rites and BRON Studios. Creative Wealth Media will co-finance with New Line, and Warner Bros. Pictures will handle worldwide marketing and distribution.
“Taylor Sheridan is an exceptional filmmaker and we are thrilled to be partnering with him, Angelina Jolie, BRON and the entire filmmaking team on this exciting project,” New Line’s president and chief content officer Carolyn Blackwood and president and chief creative officer Richard Brener said.
“We are thrilled to be working with Taylor Sheridan, Angelina Jolie and all the wonderful talent in front and behind the camera. We are also excited for another collaboration with the New Line Cinema team,” Gilbert added.
