Global content leader Lionsgate is all set to unveil their next film, Kin. With two brothers on the run and a mysterious weapon, the film narrates the story of an unusual heroism and kinship.
The crime thriller, Kin is predominantly a road film whose plot required its production to be shot in several states. Commenting on the same, Production Designer, Ethan Tobman said, â€œThere are more than 75 locations, and we’re portraying multiple climates, mostly in Toronto. We have 15 builds from scratch, but dozens of other locations that were heavily modified.â€
Having shot both in exterior as well as interior spaces, the filmmakers of Kin have set a dark tone to the film, representing ‘vanishing America’ while simultaneously focusing on the aspect of family and brotherhood.
Adding further, Tobman said, â€œFrom the moment I read the script, my feeling was that this was a film about an America that is no longer the same. I walked into our first meeting on production design wanting to represent that, and the directors had the same instincts. We have a road movie taking place in an America that’s no longer driven by the dream of white picket-fences that starts in a gorgeous but crumbling city that is a symbol of America’s ultimate shame, of stunning corruption and industrial failure.â€
Exploring an America that is no longer safe, Kin will lead the audience into a terrifying world which is deadly and anxiety stricken.
Kin will be distributed by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures & stars Myles Truitt and Jack Reynor. Directed by Jonathan Baker and Josh Baker and written by Daniel Casey, the film is slated to release on 31st August 2018.
