This upcoming season will star Oscar winner Mahershala Ali. Nic Pizzolatto is set to direct, along with Jeremy Saulnier. That’s quite a big boulder to put on Ali’s shoulders.

TELLURIDE FILM FESTIVAL Begins, Bringing Magic Back to Colorado Mountains

The 44th incarnation of the world-renowned Telluride Film Festival began with its usual under-stated fanfare on Friday, bringing to the idyllic Colorado Mountains the usual lineup of stars, awards hopefuls, and diehard movie fans. Only the rest of Labor Day weekend will tell how far the event organizers have hit it out, but the slate of options and early returns portend well for the gathering.
