I think you’ll all agree with me when I say that Blue Ruin was one of the finest independent thrillers to come out in recent years. It had a superb script, a powerful lead in Macon Blair and some really solid direction, it looked fantastic, and just hit home on so many levels. It was a prime example of what can be done if you have a great script and the talent to back it.
It was announced some time ago that Jeremy Saulnier’s follow-up to the awesome Blue Ruin would be another thriller called Green Room.
Not an awful lot has been revealed about the story…but I can you , it’s about neo-nazis and a punk band who get trapped in a building together. By the looks of things, I’m pretty sure they’re not going to forming a band band playing on stage together. I can only imagine that’s things will get pretty fucking ugly, and a punk vs neo-nazi war will commence!
Here’s the synopsis from IMDB
A young punk rock band find themselves trapped in a secluded venue after stumbling upon a horrific act of violence.
The cast include – Patrick Stewart, Imogen Poots, Anton Yelchin, Macon Blair, Mark Webber, Alia Shawkat, Joe Cole
No doubt this is gonna be another powerful film Saulnier, and may he have many more to come.
More to follow as it’s announced.
