Sheridan, who earned a screenplay nomination for “Hell or High Water,” made his directorial debut in 2017 with “Wind River” and is currently finishing production on the second season of “Yellowstone,” which he produced, wrote and directed. This is also one of Jolie’s first film roles since “By The Sea” in 2015, as she is also set to appear in Disney’s “Maleficent 2” in 2020.

Garrett Basch,Steve Zaillian and BRON’s Aaron L. Gilbert will produce, with Creative Wealth Media’s Jason Cloth as executive producer.
Jolie is repped by UTA, and Sheridan is repped by CAA and Elevate Entertainment. The deal was first reported by Deadline.
