While there are a huge amount of big budget Hollywood blockbusters that we are looking forward to in the coming years, especially with the announcement of all the Marvel and DC movies that we are getting between now and 2020, there are also plenty of smaller movie projects due for release that we are equally as excited about. One of those films is the upcoming movie release The World Made Straight, which is expected to hit the big screen in 2015.
The World Made Straight went into pre-production way back in 2012, so it seems that it has been a pretty long journey between then and the film finally hitting the big screen. The movie stars actress Minka Kelly and completed production earlier this year, with the film being given an official release fate for the US, while the UK and other countries are still awaiting confirmation on its release there.
There will be some of you who know plenty about The World Made Straight but, for those of you who are not too familiar with the project, it has been officially described as, "In a rural Appalachian community haunted by the legacy of a Civil War massacre, a rebellious young man struggles to escape the violence that would bind him to the past."
As well as starring Minka Kelly, The World Made Straight boasts a fairly impressive cast including such names as Haley Joel Osment, Jeremy Irvine, Noah Wyle, and Adelaide Clemens, among others. The World Made Straight is directed by David Burris, based on the screenplay that Shane Danielsen developed from the Ron Rash novel, with the movie set to hit the big screen in the US on January 9, 2015.
