John Malkovich, Quavo, and Willa Fitzgerald round out the key cast on Wash Me In The River, which recently wrapped principal photography in Puerto Rico and centres on a recovering opioid addict seeking revenge on the dealers responsible for his fiancé’s death.

Randall Emmett directed from a screenplay by Adam Taylor Barker and Chris Sivertson. Emmett/Furla’s Emmett, George Furla, Tim Sullivan, and Chad Verdi serve as producers.

“Our trusted international partners had their eyes on the film for some time now, so being able to wrap principal photography with such a stellar cast amid the pandemic is something we are very proud of,” said Highland Film Group CEO Arianne Fraser.
