Green Room, the upcoming thriller from Blue Ruin writer/director Jeremy Saulnier, features Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots and Alia Shawkat as members of a band who are trapped in a backwoods venue by a white power gang led by Patrick Stewart.

The bad news is that the Green Room release isn’t set for this year.
