Kurt Russell and Tony Revolori have joined the cast of Matthew McConaughey-led crime thrillerThe Rivals of Amziah King, currently lensing in Oklaholma.
The indie film is one of several high-profile projects that remains in production having been given a waiver to push on during the writers’ and actors’ strikes.
Though the plot of the film, to be directed by Andrew Patterson, is being kept under wraps it’s been described as a “deeply atmospheric, character-focused crime thriller set against the unique backdrop of remote Oklahoma.”

Also in the cast, former “Arrow” star Katie McNamara, Joey Shear, and Derrick Goodman Jr.
Black Bear Pictures, financiers of I Care a Lot and The Imitation Game, bankrolled the film. Black International International launched sales in Cannes while WME handled domestic. David Heyman, Schwarzman, Michael Heimler, Jeffrey Clifford, Will Greenfield and Patterson produce.
