An international trailer for director David Gordon Green’s (Prince Avalanche, All the Real Girls) gritty, southern drama Joe is now online, offering one of the very first looks at the upcoming drama. Check it out in the player below, courtesy of Wild Side Films.
Starring Nicolas Cage and Tye Sheridan, Joe is written by Gary Hawkins and is based on the Larry Brown novel of the same title.
In the dirty unruly world of small-town Texas, ex-convict Joe Ransom (Cage) has tried to put his dark past behind him and to live a simple life. He works for a lumber company by day, drinks by night. But when 15-year-old Gary (Sheridan) – a kid trying to support his family – comes to town, desperate for work, Joe has found a way to atone for his sins – to finally be someones hero. As Joe tries to protect Gary, the pair will take the twisting road to redemption in the hope for a better life.
Joe is produced by Green, his long-time producer Lisa Muskat, and Worldview CEO Christopher Woodrow, alongside Derrick Tseng.
