Hold the Dark is an adaptation of William Giraldi’s novel of the same name. Retired naturalist and wolf expert Russell Core (Jeffrey Wright) journeys to the edge of civilization in northern Alaska at the pleading of Medora Slone (Riley Keough), a young mother whose son was killed by a pack of wolves. As Core attempts to help Medora track down the wolves who took her son, a strange and dangerous relationship develops between the two lonely souls.
But when Medora’s husband Vernon (Alexander Skarsgård) returns home from the Iraq War, the news of his child’s death ignites a violent chain of events. As local cop Donald Marium (James Badge Dale) races to stop Vernon’s vengeful rampage, Core is forced on a perilous odyssey into the heart of darkness.
Hold the Dark is directed by Saulnier and is written by his longtime creative partner Macon Blair. Neil Kopp, Vincent Savino, Anish Savjani, Eva Maria Daniels, Russell Ackerman, and John Schoenfelder produced the film.
The film will have its world premiere at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival. Hold the Dark will be distributed by the popular streaming service on September 28.
