Principal photography has begun in and around Los Angeles and in Iowa on the true-life wrongful death story The Thacker Case.

Set in small town Iowa, the film stars Gabriel Mann as a young attorney who uncovers a web of lies and cover-ups following the mysterious death of Kevin Thacker, a repeat drunk driver whose body was found in an alleyway behind a police station following his final arrest in 1983.

Brian Jun, whose feature debut Steel City premiered at Sundance 2006, is directing based on Robert Dean Klein's screenplay. Eliza Dushku and John Savage round out the key cast.

Mark Roberts and Lorena David are producing through Roberts/David Films and attorney Stuart Pepper, who will be portrayed in the film by Mann, serves as executive producer.
