You definitely know actor David Dastmalchian from ominous turns in films such as Prisoners and The Dark Knight, but he gets to explore much different territory in Animals. The film won the Special Jury Prize for Courage in Storytelling at SXSW in 2014, which has got to be pretty good for Dastmalcian, as he scripted the film in addition to starring in it.
Directed by Collin Schiffli, Animals features Dastmalchian as a guy who, with his partner Bobbie (played by Kim Shaw) deals with homelessness and addiction while carving out a tiny life in Chicago. Oscilloscope Laboratories will release the film later this season, and you can see the Animals trailer and poster below. Read More »

Hit the jump for casting details and more.
