“Joe” is directed by David Gordon Green; Gary Hawkins adapted Larry Brown’s novel of the same title.

Shooting started in Austin, Texas, on Oct. 31. Cage portrays an ex-con who becomes a role model to a 15 year-old (Tye Sheridan) from a broken home while Blevins will portray the villainous Willie Russell.

Worldview Entertainment announced during the Toronto Film Festival that it had come onboard to finance and produce. “Joe” is produced by Green, Lisa Muskat and Worldview CEO Christopher Woodrow alongside Derrick Tseng.

Blevins is repped by the Glick Agency and managed by Alan Somers.
