In the new movie Red Hill starring True Blood’s Ryan Kwanten (aka Jason Stackhouse) he plays young police officer Shane Cooper who relocates to the small country town of Red Hill with his pregnant wife Alice to start a family. And if that’s where the story ended, we probably wouldn’t be talking about it today.
Instead, when news of a prison break sends the local law enforcement officers into a panic, Shane’s first day on duty rapidly turns into a nightmare. Enter Jimmy Conway, a convicted murderer serving life behind bars, who has returned to the isolated outpost seeking revenge.Isn’t that the way it always is. Those darn convicted murders.
Now caught in the middle of what will become a terrifying and bloody confrontation, Shane will be forced to take the law into his own hands if he is to survive. I’ll bet he probably does but still, looking forward to this movie anyway. It sounds pretty good.
Plus ladies, I believe Kwanten takes his shirt off at least once during the film. So see, its not just a movie for guys. Check out the trailer after the jump.
Red Hill will play Chicago International Film Festival, the Mill Valley Film Festival, Fantastic Fest, and the Philadelphia Film Festival before its November 5th release.
