Hyena Road, a Canadian war movie set in Afghanistan from director-star Paul Gross, has dropped its second trailer.
Shot in Manitoba and Jordan in 2014, the film stars Gross (Passchendaele) and Rossif Sutherland (High Life) as, respectively, an intelligence office and a sniper attempting to do the right thing in the morally murky terrain of the war on the Taliban.
In an interview last fall, Gross explained the Manitoba scenes shot in the vicinity of CFB Shilo consisted of "mostly interiors, tactical operation centres and barracks.
"We also built a fairly large set as the forward operating base at Sperwan Ghar in Shilo, but it has the benefit of high blast walls, so we don’t actually see over it so we can see prairie and not Kandahar," Gross said.
The film, which also stars Christine Horne, Allan Hawco and Clark Johnson, is scheduled to open in Canadian theatres Oct. 9.
