The film, Saulnier’s follow-up to 2015’s Green Room, is set to world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in the Special Presentations section before its global Netflix debut on September 28th.
Hold the Dark is directed by Jeremy Saulnier and written by Macon Blair. It is produced by Russell Ackerman, John Schoenfelder, Eva Maria Daniels, Neil Kopp, and Anish Savjani.
Retired naturalist and wolf expert Russell Core (JEFFREY WRIGHT) journeys to the edge of civilization in northern Alaska at the pleading of Medora Slone (RILEY KEOUGH), a young mother whose son was killed by a pack of wolves. As Core attempts to help Medora track down the wolves who took her son, a strange and dangerous relationship develops between the two lonely souls.
But when Medora’s husband Vernon (ALEXANDER SKARSGARD) returns home from the Iraq War, the news of his child’s death ignites a violent chain of events. As local cop, Donald Marium (JAMES BADGE DALE), races to stop Vernon’s vengeful rampage, Core is forced on a perilous odyssey into the heart of darkness.
