A poster and trailer have been released for director Clark Johnson’s upcoming drama Percy which stars Christopher Walken as a farmer who takes on a giant corporation after he discovers that their GMO canola is interfering with his crops; take a look here…
Based on events from a 1998 lawsuit, PERCY follows small-town farmer Percy Schmeiser, who challenges a major conglomerate when the company’s genetically modified (GMO) canola is discovered in the 70-year-old farmer’s crops. As he speaks out against the company’s business practices, he realizes he is representing thousands of other disenfranchised farmers around the world fighting the same battle. Suddenly, he becomes an unsuspecting folk hero in a desperate war to protect farmers’ rights and the world’s food supply against what they see as corporate greed.
The film features a cast that also includes Christina Ricci, Zach Braff, Luke Kirby, Adam Beach, Martin Donovan, Roberta Maxwell and Peter Stebbings.
Percy is set for release on October 9th.
