'Beasts of the Southern Wild' Co-Star Dwight Henry Joins Barkhad Abdi in Indie drama 'The Wolf Who Cried Boy'

Beasts of the Southern Wild” and “12 Years a Slave” co-star Dwight Henry, joins Barkhad Abdi and Torrey Wigfield in the Detroit-set indie drama “The Wolf Who Cried Boy,” scripted by Luke Jaden (“King Ripple,” “The Listing”) and Cort Johns (“King Ripple,” “The Listing”), who will also be co-directing the film.

The story, described as “anti-coming-of-age,” centers on a young man who gets swept into the seedy underbelly of the scrapping industry.

This film is being produced by Jaden, Johns, Frank Capra III, Phil Wurtzel, Anthony Garth, Michael Zervos, and Andy Henry, for production companies 

Troika, Mother and Midwife Pictures, and Friel Films in association with SOS Prods.

Principal photography is set for Spring in Detroit – “in a town that is the rusty carcass of a once thriving metropolis.”

Henry is also booked for Nate Parker’s Nat Turner film, “The Birth of a Nation,” and Julien Temple’s in-Limbo Marvin Gaye biopic, “Sexual Healing.”
