The Rivals‘ plot is being kept under wraps, though the project is described as a character-focused crime thriller set against the backdrop of rural Oklahoma. LookingGlass landed the co-lead opposite McConaughey, we’re told, following a worldwide search. The feature is the second from writer-director Andrew Patterson on the heels of The Vast of Night, a sci-fi mystery distributed by Amazon that won the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature in its Slamdance debut before going on to win Breakthrough Director at the Gotham Awards.

Black Bear fully financed the picture and produced alongside Heyday Films and G.E.D. Media. Heyday’s David Heyman, Black Bear’s Teddy Schwarzman and Michael Heimler, Heyday’s Jeffrey Clifford, Will Greenfield and Patterson produced the film. Black Bear is representing the project for international sales, with WME Independent handling U.S. rights.

Russell is represented by UTA; Sprouse by WME, Entertainment 360, and DLA Piper; Teague by CAA and Jackoway Austen Tyerman; Shepherd by UTA and Framework Entertainment; Morgan by Stride Management and Yorn, Levine, Barnes; Revolori by Circle Management and Production and Jackoway Austen Tyerman; Horowitz by Hyperion Talent Agency and Untitled Entertainment; and LookingGlass by Apex Talent Group.
