After one of her tribe sets an American soldiers' camp ablaze, a young female Mohawk finds herself pursued by a ruthless band of renegades bent on revenge. Fleeing deep into the woods, Mohawk youths Oak and Calvin confront the bloodthirsty Colonel Holt and his soldiers. As the Americans seem to close in from all sides, the trio must summon every resource both real and supernatural as the brutal attack escalates.
Other cast in the film will include WWE Superstar Jon Huber (aka Luke Harper) and an elite line up of genre names including: Justin Rain (SyFy's DEFIANCE / TWILIGHT: Eclipse), Noah Segan (LOOPER / STARRY EYES), Ian Colleti (AMC's PREACHER), Robert Longstreet (TAKE SHELTER / AIN'T THEM BODIES SAINTS), Sheri Foster (Netflix's UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT), Ezra Buzzington (The Hills Have Eyes, Crossbones) and many others.
Greg Newman (Producer), said: "We are thrilled to be working with both Ted and Travis again. We Are Still Here proved them to be a winning production team. We're excited for Ted to take on a real-life horror story that promises to deliver action and suspense to spare."
Travis Stevens (Producer) adds "From Rey in THE FORCE AWAKENS, to FURY ROAD's Furiosa, to Wonder Woman to Jessica Jones, action audiences have shown a voracious appetite for strong, well-written female characters. We're excited to work with Dark Sky Films and Tiio Horn and introduce the character of 'Okwaho' to the diverse pantheon of action heroines who have come before her."
Director Ted Geoghegan said, "Mohawk is hard-hitting action-horror that subverts traditional genre tropes while delivering a timeless tale of good versus evil. We look to deliver a horrifying home invasion film where the home is North America itself.""
