Novel by Daniel Woodrell. Adapted for the screen by Juanita Wilson. TOMATO RED tells the tale of two siblings, Jamalee and Jason Merridew, and their ex-con sidekick Sammy Barlach. For Jamalee, her hair tomato red suitably matching her rage and ambition, their small town American life just won’t do. Jamelee’s dreams are made in Hollywood, among tuxedos and palm trees. Jason, blessed with drop-dead good looks, is the local object of female obsession and their ticket out of town. However the hills and hollows of the Ozarks can be a very dangerous place. Sammy is meant to be the muscle Jamalee and Jason need to get out, but not even he can protect them from everything.
Planning to shoot June 2015.
