Taylor Sheridan has been the go-to screenwriter in Hollywood with hits like Sicario and the Oscar nominated Hell or High Water. In his new film, Those Who Wish Me Dead, a high powered district attorney is shot down in Fort Lauderdale at the hands of two hitmen played by Aiden Gillen and Nicholas Hoult. The attorney’s accountant knows he’s the next target, so he flees to Montana with his son. The hitmen find him and kill him but his son manages to escape into the forest. Angelina Jolie plays a firefighter and smoke watcher who finds the young boy and tries to keep him safe from the hitmen while a forest fire rages on around them. In theaters and streaming on HBO Max May 14.
