We have an exclusive poster to debut today for director David Burris’ adaptation of the Ron Rash novel The World Made Straight. The film takes place in a rural Appalachian community haunted by the legacy of a Civil War massacre and stars Jeremy Irvine (War Horse) as a young man who finds himself caught between the violence of the past and the evils of the present. Fallen Skies star and E.R. alum Noah Wyle also stars in the film alongside Haley Joel Osment, Minka Kelly, Adelaide Clements, and Steve Earle, and this poster hints at the dangerous nature of the Appalachian community that affects the ensemble.
Check out the World Made Straight poster after the jump. The dramatic thriller opens in theaters and VOD on January 9, 2015.
