Tye Sheridan has made a name for himself as the likeable, wholesome boy-next-door with performances in films such as Joe and X-Men: Apocalypse, but his next starring role promises to derail that image pretty quickly.
Here’s the synopsis:
Harper (Sheridan), a young law student, begins to steadily lose all sense of right and wrong after the shocking death of his mother, and begins to wrestle with the idea of murdering his abusive stepfather (Stephen Moyer) in a decision that will have profound and terrifying consequences.
Detour looks like a seriously messed up watch, and Sheridan has definitely traded in his wholesome nature for that of a brooding psychopath. Stephen Moyer (True Blood) also appears to be going to extremes as Harper’s abusive stepfather Vincent, and it’s clear that there is going to be no happy ending for this deranged family.
Detour will will be released in select cinemas and on VOD platforms on January 20, 2017.
