When I wrote about this film back in February of 2010 it was to announce the casting of Jeffrey Dean Morgan, then fresh from his Watchmen duties. I hadn’t seen anything other than the general synopsis for the film and drew a comparison with Zodiac, something that this new trailer appears to compound.

Morgan teams up with Sam Worthington in Ami Mann’s film based, as the title card in the trailer has it, on the true story of two detectives ploughing through a long running unsolved case in the titular fields. The trailer sets the scene nicely and though a few guns are brandished you get the impression that this is a slow burning film which will focus on the central dynamic as the story unfolds. Jessica Chastain and Chloe Moretz also star along with, if IMDb is to be believed, Sheryl Lee and if the quick shots in the trailer of bodies wrapped in plastic are anything to go seems entirely appropriate.

The film will open at the Venice Film Festival before its 7th of October release date in the US. No date yet for its UK date, but hopefully this one will be worthy of a theatrical run here.
