About the Film

With North Carolina being a hot spot for both television shows and movies productions, I chose to blog about the upcoming film ‘American Animals’ that will be filming in Charlotte, North Carolina. ‘American Animals’ is directed by Bart Layton and is based on a true story. The movie is about four men who mistaken their lives as a movie and end up pulling one of the biggest heists in American history. This film is a heist movie which also explores the search for meaning. Production of this movie will begin in early 2017 in Charlotte. Film4 is the production company for this movie and most notably has produced films, ’12 Years a Slave’ and ‘127 Hours’. Evan Peters will be the lead actor in this movie and has most notably starred in ‘American Horror Story’ and as Quicksilver in both ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ and ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’.

Bart Layton will be both the writer and director of ‘American Animals’. This is Layton’s second feature film he will direct.

His film was also the winner of multiple awards including the Grand Jury Prize for best documentary and was also nominated for an Oscar. Bart Layton has also created and produced many British television shows including ‘Locked up Abroad’. He is a very accomplished director and producer, who is very excited to start on his next film.
