Deadline reported Max Mayer’s Deception Road has cast Finn Wittrock, Alice Eve, and Thomas Haden Church as the main cast.
Dallas Mitchell Brennan will pen the script of the dark comedy thriller with Smith Global Media distributing in the U.S. and Canada.
Set in the atomic age, the film follows Oscar (Wittrock) who hitches a ride with Hal (Church) in what starts out as a simple ride but soon turns into a bizarre and dangerous game of cat and mouse. Oscar finds himself caught between Hal and his sexy wife Jessie (Eve) in a passionate and twisted relationship game played out on the road against the stark landscape of the American Southwest.
Production will begin this summer in Utah.
