Antonio Campos is scheduled to begin filming the project that Netflix calls a "mid-western gothic tale" next month in Alabama. Campos and his brother Paulo penned the screenplay.
"In a place called Knockemstiff, Ohio, a forgotten backwoods of this country -- a storm of faith, violence and redemption brews," a synopsis said. "Out of desperation to save his dying wife, Willard Russell turns to prayer which succumbs to sacrifice. This sets our protagonist Arvin, Willard's son, on his path from bullied kid to a man who knows when to take action."
