Schoenaerts, Hedlund, McNairy To Make “Sound”

Matthias Schoenaerts (“A Bigger Splash”), Garrett Hedlund (“Inside Llewyn Davis”) and Scoot McNairy (“Argo”) are all set to star in the Philadelphia mob tale “The Sound of Philadelphia”,” a story of family and loyalty set in the violent world of the Philadelphia mob.

Jeremie Guez (“A Bluebird in My Heart”) helms the cross-generational story, adapted from the Pete Dexter book “Brotherly Love,” which follows events after a young girl is killed by a reckless driver and her family seek revenge.

Two decades later, Peter Flood (Schoenaerts) is still tormented by his baby sister’s death. As his cousin Michael (Hedlund) grows more powerful in the hierarchy of the family crime business, a cycle of betrayal and retribution starts.

Christine Vachon, David Hinojosa, Julien Madon and Aimee Buidine are producing. Shooting gets underway in Philadelphia in August.
