Texas Killing Fields Italian trailer
I am disappointed that this trailer is in Italian and not English because it looks so good. Originally I wasn't going to write about it but the trailer does look powerful and it's based on actual events, although with Hollywood we never really know how far that strays from the truth.
The film sees two detectives investigating a series of unsolved murders and stars Sam Worthington, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Chloe Moretz, Jessica Chastain, Stephen Graham, Jason Clarke, Annabeth Gish and Sheryl Lee.
The trailer flashes up the name of Michael Mann, but he's a Producer on the film, note he's not one of the Executive Producers, which should suit the director just fine. Texas Killing Fields is actually directed by Ami Canaan Mann and written by Don Ferrarone.
Ami Canaan Mann is indeed Michael Mann's daughter, and she has writing credits on NYPD Blue, Nancy Drew and directed an episode of Robbery Homicide Division as well as one for Friday Night Lights, so this is a big film for her. It's also Ferrarone's first writing credit.
There are some unknowns here, but looking at the acting credits on the film and the trailer itself, as well as the subject matter, I wonder if we're going to find this turns out to be a rather strong thriller.
Of course I wouldn't be surprised anyway with a Mann behind the camera. Here's the blurb for the film:
Inspired by true events, this tense and haunting thriller follows a local homicide detective (Sam Worthington) in a small Texan town and his partner, a transplanted cop from New York City (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) as they track a sadistic serial killer dumping his victims' mutilated bodies in a nearby marsh locals call "The Killing Fields."
The killer changes the game and begins hunting the detectives, teasing them with possible clues at the crime scenes while always remaining one step ahead. When a familiar local girl, Anne (Chloe Moretz) goes missing the detectives find themselves in a race against time to find the killer and save her life.
Here's the trailer for the Texas Killing Fields, and as soon as I find an English version I'll post it.
