Rob Gough and Trevor Gretzky also star in the film.

Edward John Drake of "Broil" fame is directing from a script he co-wrote with Corey Large.

Producers are Large with Sean Patrick O'Reilly, Steven Eads, Matthew Helderman.

Shooting is underway in Georgia, after which principal photography will move to Victoria, British Columbia.
