Those Who Wish Me Dead: Taylor Sheridan to Direct Thriller, Starring Angelina Jolie.

Angelina Jolie will star in the chase thriller Those Who Wish Me Dead, to be directed by Taylor Sheridan from his own script.

Sheridan is adapting the script from Michael Koryta’s 2014 novel of the same name, about a 14-year-old boy who witnesses a brutal murder.

He is then issued a false identity and placed in a wilderness skills program for troubled teens, while the killers continue to search for him.

Jolie’s character is kept in secrecy, though it’s known that the story is set against a wildfire in the Montana wilderness.

Producers are Garrett Basch and Steve Zaillian of Film Rites and Bron Studios’ Aaron L. Gilbert.

Creative Wealth Media’s Jason Cloth is the executive producer.
