Parker, Dillahunt reteam for 'Sherman'

'Deadwood' alumni also worked on 'The Road' adaptation

TORONTO -- Molly Parker and Garret Dillahunt are reuniting on the indie drama "Oliver Sherman" from Canadian producer the Film Works.

Parker ("Swingtown") and Dillahunt earlier worked together on HBO's "Deadwood" and next on the upcoming adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's "The Road," set for theatrical release on Nov. 25.

In "Oliver Sherman," Dillahunt plays a disconnected war veteran who goes in search of a soldier, played by Donal Logue, who saved his life during the war and is now quietly living in a rural town with a wife (Parker) and two children.

The project, to shoot in northern Ontario, marks the first feature from writer-director Ryan Redford. Antonio Calvache is DOP, while Paul Stephens and Eric Jordan of the Films Works share producer credits.

Mongrel Media will release the indie picture in Canada.

The Film Works is also in preproduction on Agnieszka Holland's next film, the World War II drama "Hidden" being penned by David Shamoon.
