Matthias Schoenaerts, Josh Stewart, Gideon Adlon, Susan Sarandon, and Bruce Dern have signed on for the film “Mustang” at Focus Features and Legende Films.

Stewart will play his eager but strung out cellmate, Sarandon is the prison’s therapist and Adlon is the convict’s daughter.
French director Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre directs from a script co-written by Mona Fastvold and Brock Norman Brock. Alain Goldman and Molly Hallam are producing and filming is now underway in Nevada.
