Bad Country

Preview by Jack Foley

SONY Pictures Home Entertainment invites action and suspense fans to discover Bad Country, the new crime thriller available March 10 on DVD and Digital.

This high-stakes drama tells the gripping tale of a Louisiana detective (Willem Dafoe) who teams up with a contract killer-turned-informant (Matt Dillon) to take down the most powerful criminal enterprise in the South.

The cast starring alongside two-time Academy Award® nominee Dafoe (Best Supporting Actor, Shadow of the Vampire, 2001; Best Supporting Actor, Platoon, 1986) and Academy Award® nominee Dillon (Best Supporting Actor, Crash, 2006), includes Amy Smart (Crank), Neal McDonough (Captain America: The First Avenger) and Academy Award® nominee Tom Berenger (Best Supporting Actor, Platoon, 1986).

Directed by Chris Brinker, producer of The Boondock Saints and The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day, the DVD features deleted scenes and Taking Down An Empire: On the Set, an in-depth featurette on the making of this modern, film-noir thrill ride.

Co-starring in Bad Country is Kevin Chapman (TV’s Person of Interest), Bill Duke (X Men: The Last Stand) and Chris Marquette (Alpha Dog).


When Baton Rouge police detective Bud Carter (Dafoe) busts contract killer Jesse Weiland (Dillon), he convinces Jesse to become an informant and rat out the South’s most powerful crime ring.

So, when the syndicate orders Carter’s death and Weiland is ID’d as a snitch, the two team up to take down the mob and the crime boss (Berenger) who ordered the hit.
