This was Mr. King and Mr. Hill's second collaboration. The first being Throttle. Patrick Wilson ( The Conjuring films, Aquaman), Harrison Gilbertson (Upgrade, Need for Speed) and Laysla De Oliveria (Code 8) will appear in the film-adaptation . Steven Hoban, M. Riley and Jimmy Miller will produce the movie. In the Tall Grass will premiere on Netflix.
