EXCLUSIVE: Smith Global Media has obtained the U.S. and Canadian theatrical distribution rights to Deception Road, which is being directed by Max Mayer. Formally titled, Green Olds, the Dallas Mitchell Brennan-penned dark comedic thriller will star Finn Wittrock (Unbroken), Alice Eve (She’s Out of My League), and Thomas Haden Church (Divorce). Production is slated to take place in Utah this summer.

Set in the atomic age, the film follows Oscar (Wittrock) who hitches a ride with Hal (Church) in what starts out as a simple ride but soon turns into a bizarre and dangerous game of cat and mouse. Oscar finds himself caught between Hal and his sexy wife Jessie (Eve) in a passionate and twisted relationship game played out on the road against the stark landscape of the American Southwest.
