Animosity can often arise amongst peers who begin to develop diverse stances on the way their society should approach life. That bitterness can become even more impassioned between adolescents who are so eager to secure leadership and control over the future of their community that their sense of morals don’t completely develop. That’s certainly the case between the characters of actor Patrick Schwarzenegger’s upcoming thriller, ‘Go North,’ whose trailer and poster have just been unveiled.
The drama marks the narrative feature film directorial debut of Emmy-nominated documentarian, Matt Ogens. The helmer also worked with Kyle Lierman on the screenplay for ‘Go North,’ which was executive produced by fellow documentarian, Morgan Spurlock. The adventure movie, whose score was composed by Greg Kuehn, will be distributed in the U.S. on January 13, 2017 by Orion Pictures.
The following synopsis for ‘Go North’ has been released:
In the aftermath of an unknown catastrophe, a community left with zero living adults has descended into a modern-day Lord of the Flies, run by a small cabal of what had been the jocks occupying the athletic and social upper crust of the local high school, headed by Caleb (Patrick Schwarzenegger).
Faced with the bleak despair of their situation, Josh (Jacob Lofland) and Jessie (Sophie Kennedy Clark) strike out on a dangerous journey into the unknown to find family and hope for the future, with Caleb and his vicious underling Gentry (James Bloor) in hot pursuit.
