Director Aaron Guzikowski and the cast of The Red Road stopped by The Hollywood Reporter's video lounge for a fireside chat to share a bit about their forthcoming Sundance channel series.
"I used to live in New York City, so I had heard about the tribe that the tribe in the show was inspired by," said Guzikowski, later adding: "I had all these stories that I wanted to tell -- these kind of family thriller type stories, crime stories and it just seemed like the perfect place to kind of set a lot of those kinds of stories."
The drama, which revolves around the friction between a small town in New Jersey and a Native American tribe, stars Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa.
"We had some very, very, very hard scenes, at first glance, would seem to be, not impossible, but really difficult to do well," explained cast member Tom Sizemore. "It was just one little act with such a talented young actor, reminds me a little bit of Marlon Brando with his size and his nimbleness of emotion. Jason is going to be a enormous star if he does everything right."
The cast was asked what each had in their pocket for Sundance Survival purposes. To laughs, Momoa revealed he carried "a bag of chicken" in his pocket. The actor later jokingly added, to the camera: "this and Guinness."
