The Dirty South | Matthew Yerby on Directing a Southern Small Town Thriller

SAG-AFTRA has approved an interim agreement for The Dirty South since the film is being released by Cineverse, an independent, non-AMPTP affiliated distributor. Under the terms, members “may work on these productions without being in violation of the strike order,” per the guild. The entire team of The Dirty South expresses their gratitude to SAG-AFTRA for allowing the cast to promote The Dirty South during this challenging time for the industry.

There is a certain lawlessness in the South that folks must do for survival. In The Dirty South, two strangers hatch against a wealthy man for their sake.

The film stars Willa Holland (Arrow, Gossip Girl), Shane West (The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Salem), and Dermot Mulroney (Scream VI, Young Guns). Matthew Yerby wrote and directed the movie.

Here is the official synopsis:

In The Dirty South, Sue Parker (Willa Holland) finds herself in a desperate battle to save her family’s struggling business, which is on the brink of collapse due to her father’s neglect. When a handsome drifter (Shane West) comes into town she sees him as the only chance to prevent their bar from falling into the hands of a ruthless local tycoon (Dermot Mulroney). What starts as a simple plan to save her family, quickly spirals into larceny, lawlessness, and deadly consequences.
