Oren Uziel’s long gestating 2009 Black List script, SHIMMER LAKE, is finally starting production with Uziel helming in his feature directorial debut. The film stars Benjamin Walker and also features Rainn Wilson, Wyatt Russell, Mark Rendall, Stephanie Sigman, Rob Corddry, Ron Livingston, John Michael Higgins and Adam Pally. Writ Large and Footprint Features are producing the project that started shooting last week in Toronto.
The film follows a local sheriff at the end of a weeklong investigation, and takes us backwards to the beginning of the week, day by day. Walker plays the sheriff, who is looking to solve a botched bank job, the criminals being played by Wilson, Rendall and Russell.
