Ray Stevenson, Jaime King, James Caan

Cinepro Pictures has announced a cast for their upcoming post-apocalyptic thriller Tribes of October. Philippe Martinez, who is better known as a producer more than a director even though he's got three small films under his belt, will be directing. Martinez's cast includes Ray Stevenson, Jaime King, Stephen Moyer, Robert Duvall and James Caan. The production, budgeted at a fairly low $25 million, is eying a summer start in Michigan, and will be shot using green screen to create a unique look and distinct universe. Keep reading, because you'll definitely want to hear more about the concept for this futuristic thriller.

Tribes of October is set in a future in which New York has become surrounded by an endless desert plagued by heat storms, and the city's technology has decayed so much that nothing made after 1960 works. In this environment, a detective (Ray Stevenson) is on the hunt for a Mafia don (James Caan) who is going after the remnants of the NYPD, led by Robert Duvall. Stevenson's detective character is simultaneously searching for the love of his life (Jaime King). Stephen Moyer plays another cynical and street smart detective. The screenplay was written by Nick Vallelonga (Kingdom of the Blind, Choker) and Paul Sloan (Stiletto).

I actually like the sound of this project, for a few reasons. The cast is good, the concept is intriguing, and the story, although not too original, could be entertaining. I get a sort of Soldier and/or The Chronicles of Riddick vibe from this (not too good), with maybe Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow-like effects, but that's just what comes to mind at first. You can see some early concept art on IMDb. Sound interesting?

    THR says Duvall and Caan are "in final negotiations" for Tribes of October. Or do you have something more current?
  • No, but when THR says that, it's a 99.9% chance that they'll be officially cast. Sure, we occasionally don't use the same phrases as they do, but it's almost certain at this point.

    That's great to hear! Thanks, Alex!
