Wind River trailer with Jeremy Renner & Elizabeth Olsen
The Weinstein Company has released the first trailer for the upcoming thriller Wind River. The project is directed by Sicario screenwriter Taylor Sheridan and marks his directorial debut and stars two-time Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner (American Hustle, The Hurt Locker) and Elizabeth Olsen (Avengers). They are joined by Jon Bernthal (Sicario), Graham Greene (Thunderheart), Julia Jones (Twilight) and Gil Birmingham (The Lone Ranger). Check out the Wind River trailer below!
The film follows a rookie female FBI agent (Olsen) who teams up with a veteran, local game tracker with a haunted past (Renner) to investigates a murder on a remote Native American Reservation in the hopes of avenging the girl’s death.
The project is produced by Basil Iwanyk’s Thunder Road (Sicario, John Wick), Peter Berg’s Film 44 (Lone Survivor, Friday Night Lights), and Matthew George’s Savvy Media Holdings (LBJ). Savvy is financing along with Acacia Entertainment and Wayne Rogers’ Synergics Films. Star Thrower Entertainment is executive producing along with Riverstone Pictures and The Fyzz Facility. Insiders and Voltage are selling the film internationally and co-financed the film. CAA handled the domestic sale.
Sheridan’s writing credits include the upcoming Hell or High Water and last year’s critically-acclaimed Sicario, for which he received a WGA nomination for Best Original Screenplay.
Wind River is set to open on August 4.
