Back in 2015, a little film called Sicario hit theaters. The movie was an excellent crime piece with an extra focus on character. It had come from screenwriter Taylor Sheridan, who up until that point, had mostly made his mark acting in television. Sicario killed it, and since then, Sheridan has continued his streak of strong films by writing Hell or High or High Water and the upcoming Soldado, the latter of which is the sequel to Sicario.
Slowly, but surely, Sheridan seems to be becoming the king of the crime thriller. He looks like he’s continuing this trend with his latest project, Wind River, which he both wrote and directed. Wind River supposedly ends the “Trilogy of the Modern American Frontier” that began with Sicario and continued with Hell or High Water, so it’s only fitting that Sheridan would take the helm for this installment.
Starring in this film are Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen, surprisingly NOT reprising their roles here as Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch, respectively. The film also stars Gil Birmingham, Jon Bernthal, Julia Jones, and Kelsey Asbille.
Based on this trailer, if you’re a fan of those other films, this seems to be right up your alley, and may very well be the culmination of a real budding talent in the business. While this film looks like it’s packed with suspense and thrills, I have to say, I’m almost more excited to see what Sheridan does with his career in the future.
The official synopsis for Wind River is below:
“Wind River is a chilling thriller that follows a rookie FBI agent (Elizabeth Olsen) who teams up with a local game tracker with deep community ties and a haunted past (Jeremy Renner) to investigate the murder of a local girl on a remote Native American Reservation in the hopes of solving her mysterious death.”
