Imogen Poots Heads to ‘A Country Called Home’

Indie project set in Texas

Imogen Poots will star in indie comedy-drama “A Country Called Home” with Nicolas Gonda (“Tree of Life”) on board to produce.

Anna Axster will direct from her own screenplay, which centers on a jaded young woman finding her world unexpectedly shaken by the news of her estranged father’s death — setting her off on a journey that starts in a small Texas town to redefine her path in life.

Ryan Bingham (“Crazy Heart”) will curate the soundtrack and score. Axster’s background includes work in short films, music videos, and commercials, including directing all of  Bingham’s music videos.

Poots came on board recently to star in Todd Field’s upcoming “Beautiful Ruins.” Her credits include Aaron Paul’s “Need for Speed,” Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups” and Peter Bogdanovich’s “Squirrels to Nuts.”

The filmmakers also plan to take the music on the road and have launched a Kickstarter crowd funding campaign to do so. The campaign has raised $32,058 pf its $75,000 goal with a Jan. 16 deadline.

Gonda produced Malick’s “To the Wonder” and was recently named one of Variety’s “10 Producers to Watch.”
