Dark Sky Films Heading Down Into The Well

The WellThough you may not know the name Tom Hammock now, you soon will. A production designer on some of the best horror films in recent years, including You’re Next and All The Boys Love Mandy Lane, Hammock makes his feature debut with The Well, which was just scooped up for distribution.

The thriller, which premiered this past summer at the Los Angeles Film Festival, has been acquired by Dark Sky Films with no release plans yet announced.

Directed by Tom Hammock and written by Hammock and Jacob Forman, The Well stars Haley Lu Richardson in a breakout role as a young woman with grit, smarts, and an incredible will to survive.

Additional cast includes: Booboo Stewart (Twilight), Jon Gries (Taken), Nicole Fox (“America’s Next Top Model”), Michael McCartney (The Amazing Spider-Man), Michael Welch (Twilight), Rena Owen, Max Charles (The Amazing Spider-Man), Jacqueline Emerson (The Hunger Games), Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator), and Michael Massee (Seven).

At the edge of an expansive barren valley, all that remains of The Wallace Farm for Wayward Youth is a few hollowed-out husks of buildings. Seventeen-year-old Kendal (Haley Lu Richardson) can barely recall when the Oregon valley was still lush.

It’s been a decade since the last rainfall, and society at large has dried up and blown away. Kendal and the few others that remain barely scrape by, while dreaming of escape. When a greedy water baron lays claim to what little of the precious resource remains underground, Kendal must decide whether to run and hide or bravely fight for the few cherished people and things she has left.
