Kari Skogland is bringing audiences back to Wind River reservation. The Emmy-winning helmer has been tapped to direct a sequel to 2017 crime drama “Wind River,” the story of a hunter and FBI agent who team up to investigate the murder of a teenage girl on an ultra remote Native American reservation in Wyoming. A press release announced the news.
Titled “Wind River: The Next Chapter,” the new film sees “terror [escalating] on the Wind River reservation as a series of ritualistic murders remain unsolved. The FBI enlists Chip Hanson, a newly minted tracker for the U.S. Fish & Game, who becomes embroiled in a desperate and dangerous fight between the authorities, a vigilante, and the Reservation he calls home,” the film’s synopsis teases.
Martin Sensmeier played Chip in “Wind River” and is reprising his role for the sequel, his supporting character now the lead.
Skogland received an Emmy nod for her directing on “The Handmaid’s Tale.” ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” “The Walking Dead,” and “The Americans” are among her other credits. She’s directing a “Cleopatra” biopic led by “Wonder Woman’s” Gal Gadot.
