In just a few short years, Taylor Sheridan has become one of the most powerful forces in Hollywood. The Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Hell or High Water has amassed an impressive resume, and is the main creative force behind Yellowstone, by far the most popular drama on cable TV. He's been a busy man, which helps explain why it's been a long time since Wind River.
Based on a novel by Michael Koryta, Those Who Wish Me Dead boasts an incredible cast and a compelling mystery. Finn Little stars as Connor, who witnesses the murder of his father (Jake Weber) and runs deep into the forest to escape the killers (Aidan Gillen and Nicholas Hoult). There he encounters a firefighter (Angelina Jolie), who vows to protect him when the assassins return and start a forest fire. The film looks incredibly intense and only slightly less devastating than Wind River. The cast also includes Sheridan favorite Jon Bernthal, as well as Tyler Perry in a rare dramatic turn.
Those Who Wish Me Dead will open in theaters on May 14. It will also stream exclusively on HBO Max for one month.
