Erin Moriarty (The Boys, Captain Fantastic), Jai Courtney (Suicide Squad, Unbroken, Honest Thief), Dina Shihabi (Archive 81, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan) and Ryan Corr (House of the Dragon, High Ground) will star in the upcoming Texas-noir drama Catching Dust, written and to be directed by Stuart Gatt.

In the isolation of Texas’ Big Bend, a lone trailer on an abandoned commune has become the reluctant hideout for Geena (Erin Moriarty) at the behest of her criminal husband, Clyde (Jai Courtney). Geena’s lust for life and desire for interaction with the outside world are quashed by Clyde’s insistence they remain hidden from the law and his former cohorts looking to settle old scores. Exhausted by Clyde’s controlling ways, Geena decides to leave, but a trailer arrives carrying Amaya (Dina Shihabi) and Andy (Ryan Corr), a couple from New York seeking a respite from the city. Ignoring the risks their presence will bring, Geena convinces Clyde to let them stay, a decision that will have dangerous consequences for them all.
