2024 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Jeremy Saulnier’s Rebel Ridge

2024 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Jeremy Saulnier’s Rebel Ridge

After Murder Party (2007), the Cannes Film Festival selected Blue Ruin (2013) and Green Room (2015) and TIFF selected Hold the Dark (2018), Jeremy Saulnier‘s fifth feature film faced the eye of multiple storms dead on. With the pandemic, casting change, this new film has been in post for just over one year now. Saulnier enlisted Aaron Pierre, Don Johnson, James Badge Dale, James Cromwell, AnnaSophia Robb, Emory Cohen, Zsane Jhe and David Denman for the Netflix backed Rebel Ridge – and while the hefty price-tag is north of many Sundance budgets we feel this make actually stick a landing here.

Gist: A high-velocity thriller that explores systemic American injustices through bone-breaking action sequences, suspense and dark humor.

Production Co./Producers: Jeremy Saulnier, Neil Kopp, Vincent Savino, Anish Savjani.

Prediction: Premieres.

U.S. Distributor: Netflix.
