Last week Sundance announced that the cast would include Abigail Spencer, Clayne Crawford, Adelaide Clements, Jonah Lotan, and J. Smith Cameron. Shooting in set to get under way in June.

Johnson and Goldstein’s current credits include HBO’s “True Blood” and AMC’s “The Killing.” They also cast two cable series that have yet to premiere: A&E’s “Longmire” and SyFy’s “Defiance.”
