‘The Order’ is a forthcoming crime thriller film helmed by director Justin Kurzel and penned by Zach Baylin. Drawing its inspiration from the 1989 non-fiction book ‘The Silent Brotherhood’ by Kevin Flynn and Gary Gerhardt, the movie delves into the unsettling narrative of the white supremacist group known as The Order, which was active in the United States during the tumultuous 1980s. The gripping storyline unfolds with a wave of bank robberies and car heists that send shockwaves through communities in the Pacific Northwest. Amidst the chaos, a lone FBI agent becomes convinced that these criminal acts are not the handiwork of conventional, financially motivated wrongdoers but rather the sinister machinations of a group of domestic terrorists.
The film boasts an exceptional cast, including Hoult as the charismatic leader of the group, alongside the formidable talents of Jude Law and Tye Sheridan. They are joined by a stellar ensemble that includes Jurnee Smollett, Odessa Young, Marc Maron, Alison Oliver, Bradley Stryker, and Sebastian Pigott, promising an intense and thought-provoking cinematic experience.

This adaptation marks the second reinterpretation of the iconic 1922 German Expressionist film ‘Nosferatu,’ originally written by Henrik Galeen.

The plot of the film unfolds around Justin Kemp, a devoted family man, thrust into the challenging role of a juror in a high-profile murder trial. As he grapples with a profound moral dilemma, the film explores the harrowing question of whether he will exploit this dilemma to influence the jury’s verdict, potentially leading to the wrongful conviction or release of the accused.
