Have you ever heard of Cut Bank, Montana? Don't worry, neither had we. But you'll hear about it soon enough now that Cut Bank, a new film set in the Northwestern town, has lined up an impressive cast. Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games), Billy Bob Thornton (Sling Blade), Bruce Dern (Nebraska), Oliver Platt (The Big C) and Michael Suhlbarg (A Serious Man) have all recently signed on. They'll be joined by Warm Bodies stars Teresa Palmer and John Malkovich, both of whom have been attached to the film since last year.
The film was written by Robert Patino and will be directed by Matt Shakman. Neither of them have previous experience on feature films, but they've both worked in television. Shakman's extensive TV resume includes shows like It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia and Mad Men, while fellow feature newcomer Patino also has TV experience, writing for both Sons of Anarchy and the short-lived Prime Suspect.
Cut Bank will follow Hemsworth's character Dwayne McLaren, a former athlete now working as a mechanic. He dreams of getting out of his Montana home, but his plan to do so will drastically affect not only his life but the town as well. No word on who any of the other actors will be playing, though it's assumed Palmer will play Hemsworth's love interest. We also assume Hemsworth and Palmer are going to ditch their native Australian accents for American ones, because, seriously, who would move from Australia to Montana? That's just ridiculous.
