For siblings Kip (Josh Hartnett) and Josie (Margarita Levieva), dealing opioids in Appalachia isn't just their family business — it's their only means of survival. When a deal goes fatally wrong, Kip decides he wants out. But Kip's attempt to escape his family's legacy ignites a powder keg of violence and betrayal, imperiling Kip, Josie, and their younger brother, Boots (Owen Teague), in this searing crime-thriller that builds to a shattering conclusion. Inherit the Viper is directed by young Swiss filmmaker Anthony Jerjen, making his feature directorial debut after a few other short films previously. The screenplay is written by Andrew Crabtree. Produced by Michel Merkt and Benito Mueller. This premiered at the Zurich Film Festival earlier this fall, but hasn't shown at any other festivals yet. Lionsgate will release Jerjen's Inherit the Viper in select US theaters + on VOD starting January 10th, 2020 right after New Years. Anyone interested in this?
