Wilmer Valderrama and Jason Ritter joined the indie drama “The Dry Land” for Maya Entertainment says The Hollywood Reporter.
Previously titled “American Tragic”, the story follows a young soldier (Ryan O’Nan) who returns home from a tour of duty only to find that his small-town life no longer fits. America Ferrera plays his wife and Melissa Leo is his mom.
Valderrama is playing O’Nan’s Army buddy who helps him in his search for redemption, and Ritter is a hometown pal who looked out for the soldier’s wife while he was gone.
Ryan Piers Williams wrote the script and is making his directorial debut on the feature. Shooting is underway in Albuquerque, New Mexico before moving to locations in Texas.
