What is life like for Michael C. Hall post-Dexter? Well, the actor ventured off to work with director Jim Mickle on Cold in July, a film that is now going to make its premiere at Sundance. We have your first look via a publicity photo that was released last night.
Based on a story by Joe R. Lansdale, and adapted by Mickle and Nick Damici, the film concerns a Texas man whose life unravels into a dark underworld of corruption and violence after he kills a home intruder. Hall co-stars with Don Johnson, Sam Shepard, Vinessa Shaw, Nick Damici and Wyatt Russell.
Cold in July has been a labor of love for Mickle, the director who gave us We Are What We Are this year. The film had been in development since 2007 until it gained some traction this year.
