RLJE Films, a business unit of AMC Networks, has acquired North American rights to the western film, Murder at Yellowstone City. The film tells the story of a former slave who is looking for a place to call home and sets his sights on Yellowstone City, Montana, a desolate former boomtown now on the decline. Unfortunately, on the same day he arrives, a local prospector discovers gold — and is murdered.
The film was written by Eric Belgau and is directed by Richard Gray. The film stars Gabriel Byrne, Thomas Jane, Isaiah Mustafa, and Richard Dreyfuss. Also in the cast are Nat Wolff, Anna Camp, Aimee Garcia, Emma Kenney, and Zach McGowan.
RLJE Films will release Murder at Yellowstone City in theaters and on-demand on June 24.
