Dark mystery Steel Country will be released in cinemas on 19th April 2019.
The film, which comes from producer Gareth Ellis-Unwin (The King’s Speech) and director Simon Fellows (Malice in Wonderland), stars Andrew Scott (Sherlock), Bronagh Waugh (Hollyoaks), Denise Gough (Colette) and Christa Beth Campbell (Constantine).
Donald Devlin (Scott) is a garbage man in Harburgh, Pennsylvania, a former steel town that has seen brighter days. A single father, Donny spends his days collecting the trash of the residents of this sleepy town alongside his best friend Donna Reutzel (Waugh), and in his off-time, focusses his energies on being the best father he can be to his young daughter Wendy (Campbell).
But when Tyler Zeigler, a kid that would wave to Donny on his rounds of the neighbourhood, suddenly goes missing, Donny starts to fixate on finding out what has happened to him. With the local sheriff warning him off, and the town reacting to the young boy’s disappearance in a variety of confusing and out of character ways, Donny determines to learn the truth. But the truth may not want to reveal itself.
Steel Country features a screenplay by Brendan Higgins. It is produced by Ellis-Unwin, Leon Clarance, Tai Duncan and Mark Williams.
