While Sam Rockwell spends most of his time in supporting roles, occassionally he gets to take on a meaty leading role. He’s got just such a part in A Single Shot, which recently started shooting and has now announced a rather rocking supporting cast, with Deadline reporting that William H. Macy, Jeffrey Wright, Joe Anderson, Jason Isaacs, Kelly Reilly, Ophelia Lovibond, and Melissa Leo are all onboard.
Based on Matthew F. Jones’s novel (who also wrote the screeplay), A Single Shot is the story of a dark and deadly game of cat and mouse, prompted by the tragic death of a young girl. Rockwell plays a wild-game poacher who makes a fatal mistake that leaves him with a suitcase full of blood money and hardened killers on his trail. As the hunter becomes the hunted, John Moon is forced to defend his family and fight for his life.
David M. Rosenthal is directing.
