Here’s a brand new trailer for Kevin and Michael Goetz feature film debut Scenic Route, a thriller starring Josh Duhamel and Dan Fogle.
Scribed by The Beaver screenwriter and Black List veteran Kyle Killen, the film debuted at SXSW this year and was recently acquired at Cannes by Vertical Entertainment.
The flick focus on Mitchell (Duhamel) and his unemployed old pal Carter (Fogle) who reunite after having drifted apart on a road trip when their old pickup breaks down – a melodramatic, introspective buddy adventure quickly devolves into chaos and despair.
Sporting a mohawk, Duhamel explodes into a kicking rage and cruelly beats his buddy.
Scenic Route will hit theaters on August 23rd, 2013.

Here’s the synopsis:
Mitchell (Josh Duhamel) and Carter (Dan Fogler), life-long friends who have drifted apart, are on a road trip when their old pickup breaks down, leaving them stranded on an isolated desert road. Nobody can pick apart a man like his best friend, and as the relentless elements of the desert grind them down, they start to attack each other’s life decisions with unwavering brutality. As they question who they are and who they could have been, their agitation leads to physical confrontation and ultimately knife-wielding madness, and what begins as an inconvenience becomes a very real life or death struggle.
