Written by Mickle and Nick Damici, the film stars Hall as a man who kills a burglar who breaks into his Texas home only to find that the man’s father, an ex-con played by Shepherd, is determined to have revenge. It also stars Vinessa Shaw, Damici and Wyatt Russell.
July was produced by Linda Moran, Rene Bastian of Belladonna Productions, Marie Savare de Laitre and Adam Folk, and executive produced by Jean-Baptiste Babin, Emilie Georges, Manuel Chiche, David Atlan-Jackson and Joel Thibout.
