Teri Wyble (”The Walking Dead”, ”Terminator Genisys”), Dane Rhodes (”True Detective”, ”The Magnificent Seven”), and Hunter Burke (”Claws”, ”The Big Short”) will star in ”Lost Bayou”, an English and Cajun French language film set deep in the bayous of Louisiana.
“Lost Bayou” was a finalist in the Duplass Brothers and Seed&Spark “Hometown Heroes Rally.”
In ”Lost Bayou”, a struggling addict ventures out into the Louisiana swamp and discovers her estranged father, a Cajun faith healer, is hiding a troubling secret. Together, as they set out on an adventure across the Atchafalaya Basin, the two must come to terms with their own sins, learn to forgive, restore the faith in each other and finally heal from their own personal tragedies. Steeped in Cajun cultural and spiritual traditions, the film’s dialogue is a dynamic mix of English and Cajun French.
The film, currently filming in Louisiana, is directed by Brian C. Miller Richard, cinematography by Natalie Kingston, written by Hunter Burke and Nick Lavin, produced by Lorraine Caffery, Russell Blanchard, Kenny Reynolds, and Murray Roth and executive produced by Alicia Davis Johnson, Brian Richard, and Hunter Burke.
“This is a story that needs and deserves to be told. This film can cement another chapter in preserving our Cajun heritage through cinema,” said director Brian Richard.
