Well Go USA Acquires Western Thriller 'The Timber'

Well Go USA Entertainment has acquired the North American rights to the apocalyptic Western-thriller “The Timber,” starring Josh Peck (“Danny Collins,” The Wackness”) and James Ransone (“Sinister,” “Inside Man”). The movie will debut on DVD and Digital HD on October 6.

The film’s official synopsis reads as follows: “1898. Alaskan frontier. Two brothers, balanced on the knife’s edge between foreclosure and salvation, head deep into the wilderness in an attempt to execute a warrant in hopes of saving their home. Torn from their family, they face harsh elements, crazed men, and death at every corner in pursuit of the outlaw, a twisted man who has turned the Yukon Territory into his own personal hell. ‘The Timber’ captures the mania, starvation, swindles, hardships, and dangers that were part of the late 19th century’s historic rush for gold. This is a story of greed, betrayal, and redemption in a place where bloodshed was common and graves were carved in ice.”

“‘The Timber’ has this amazing balance of beauty and brutality, and that’s what drew me to the film,” said Doris Pfardrescher, President and CEO of Well Go USA Entertainment. “Westerns have a storytelling style all their own, and Josh Peck’s fans are going to love seeing this side of him.” 
Directed by Anthony O’Brien (“Perfect Sport”), “The Timber” also stars Maria Doyle Kennedy (“Jupiter Ascending,” “Orphan Black”), Elisa Lasowski (“Eastern Promises”), Mark Caven (“Maleficent”) and David Bailie (“Pirates of the Caribbean”).
