According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gabriel Mann will star in Valley in the Heart's Delight, an indie feature being produced by Scott Rosenfelt and Billie Greif and directed by Tim Boxell. Pete Postlethwaite and Bruce McGill also headline the cast.
Valley is based on a true story of two lynchings that took place in the early 1930s in reaction to the kidnapping of the son of a prominent local businessman. The story centers on a young maverick reporter (Mann) and his antagonist (Postlethwaite), the hard-boiled publisher of the local newspaper.
McGill will play a local businessman. Miles Murphy wrote the script and is exec producing via his Banana Peel Entertainment banner.
