‘Bad Turn Worse’ Trailer: Texas Teens Steal From The Wrong Cotton Farmer

8 October 2014 6:05 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The Texas-set neo-noir formerly known as We Gotta Get Out Of This Place has ponied up its first trailer as Starz Digital ramps up for a November 14 release. Jeremy Allen White (Shameless), Mackenzie Davis (Halt And Catch Fire) and Logan Huffman (V) star in Bad Turn Worse as small-town youngsters who blow stolen cash on a weekend of partying. Unfortunately, the sociopath they stole from (Lost‘s Mark Pellegrino) answers to an even scarier boss (William Devane), whose riches the kids are forced to heist in order to repay their debt.

Zeke and Simon Hawkins directed from a script by Dutch Southern and shot the pic on location in Texas cotton country. After it debuted at Tiff 2013, Starz acquired U.S. and Canada rights and set a limited theatrical/digital release plan. That strategy might work out well for Starz; between the film’s festival premiere and now, more indies »

The Brothers Hawkins have arrived on the scene with a loud bang that could be seen as an ode to a favourite weapon of choice in the crime genre. Now as their feature directorial debut, We Gotta Get Out of This Place, makes its way into UK cinemas, HeyUGuys had the opportunity to lightly interrogate the filmmaking duo, as they shared with us their thoughts on the creative process and the first film in their directorial canon.
