Kieran Darcy-Smith To Visit “Helena”

Aussie filmmaker Kieran Darcy-Smith (“Wish You Were Here”) is attached to direct the violent period indie feature “By Way of Helena” for Mandeville Films says Variety.

The story follows a Texas Ranger and his Mexican bride who are sent to investigate the mysterious Texan frontier town of Helena where numerous latino corpses have been washing up on the riverbank.

What they discover is an idyllic community where everything isn’t what it appears. Matt Cook penned the script which made the 2009 Black List, while David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman will produce.
