It’s based on a German novel, it was shot in Austria, and it’s just been picked up for distribution by a French sales company. Read on for all the details about the upcoming revenge thriller The Dark Valley!
As per Screen Daily, Films Distribution has acquired the rights to the flick, which is based on Thomas Willmann’s best-selling novel of the same name. It’s been billed by producers as “the first Western set in the Austrian Alps.”
Directed by Andreas Prochaska, the picture revolves around Greider, an American of Austrian descent who turns up in the remote mountain village that was his ancestors’ home for generations. The villagers offer the stranger shelter for the winter in return for a generous payment. Little do they suspect that he is aware of a dark secret harbored by the community and is there to seek revenge.
Shot on location in South Tyrol, Salzburg and Bavaria, the film co-stars British actor Sam Riley (pictured) as Greider alongside German Paula Beer and Austrian Tobias Moretti.
The film will premiere out of competition as an official selection of the Berlinale Film Festival on February 10th.
