Set 10 years after the collapse of the western economic system "The Rover" takes place in lawless Australia, where its mineral resources have become a commodity and thieves, desperados, and loners run wild. Sounds fitting -- albeit more gritty -- to be joining A24's roster of other youthful, exciting films, including "The Bling Ring," "Spring Breakers," and "The Spectacular Now."
"David Michôd is a visionary filmmaker and we are thrilled to work with him to bring 'The Rover' to U.S. audiences," said A24 in a statement. "The movie will undoubtedly confirm his singular voice and distinctive gift for creating arresting visuals and indelible characters."
"The Rover" is currently in post-production in Sydney with no word on a release date.
