Stakeland Helmer Is “Cold in July”

Backup Media’s B Media Global is set to fully finance “Stakeland” and “We Are What We Are” director Jim Mickle’s next project, the character-driven thriller “Cold in July”.

Nick Damici and Mickle are penning the adaptation of the Joe Lansdale 1989 cult novel about a man who, after killing an armed burglar in his living room in self-defense, finds his own son the target of the burglar’s father who wants eye-for-an-eye style revenge.

Linda Moran and Rene Bastian will produce and shooting begins in July.
