POINT DEFIANCE stars Derek Phillips, Josh Crotty (Scandal), Lauren Elaine (PARTY MONSTERS), Sarah Butler, and Steven Swadling (KICKBOXERs; DOE). TV veteran Phillips was a regular on the hit Friday Night Lights and Longmire among others, while Butler (I Spit On Your Gave and I Spit On Your Grave 3) has starred in another of Sayre’s producing efforts, DOUBTING THOMAS. The taut and suspenseful film focuses on stockbroker Peter Allen (Phillips), whose world is turned upside down when his troubled younger brother Alex (Crotty) returns from military duty in Afghanistan while Peter is under house arrest, forcing the elder brother to dig into a dark and secret past that he’d sooner remain hidden.
WATERLILY JAGUAR stars James Le Gros (Justified, Girls) as Bob, a famous novelist known for his “airport” best-sellers who seeks to pen a more serious novel inspired by the ancient remains of the only human ever found in the La Brea Tar Pits, only to find himself tumbling down a spiral of obsession that may leave his most important relationship in shambles: his marriage. Also starring are Mira Sorvino (Falling Skies, DROWNING; DOE; ROMY AND MICHELE’S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION) as Bob’s wife Helen, Stacey Oristano (Friday Night Lights) as Bob’s assistant Wilhelmina, Dominic Monaghan (LORD OF THE RINGS, Lost) as Bob’s agent Bill, Christopher Backus (Bosch), and Steven Swadling (KICKBOXER films).
