At home, hardened police detective Aidan Breslin, (Dennis Quaid) has grown increasingly distant from his two young sons, Alex (Lou Taylor Pucci) and Sean (Liam James), since the death of his wife. At work, he finds himself thrust into an investigation of perverse serial killings rooted in the Biblical prophecy of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: The White Horsemen, a master of deception and the unexpected leader hell-bent on conquest; The Red Horsemen, a sharp-witted warrior intent on turning man against man, with an innocence that hides a burning rage within; The Black Horsemen, a manipulative and dark tyrant, unbalanced but always one step ahead; and The Pale Horsemen, an executioner with disarming strength, determined to spread death through surgical precision.
As Breslin grapples with each new revelation in the case, he slowly discovers a shocking connection between himself and the four suspects.
Four Horsemen. Four unrelated victims. Four painful secrets. Come and See.
Directed by Jonas Åkerlund (“Spun”) and written by David Callaham, the film is produced by Platinum Dunes’ Michael Bay (“Transformers”), Brad Fuller (“The Amityville Horror”), and Andrew Form (”The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”). The executive producers are Radar Pictures’ Ted Field (“The Amityville Horror,” “The Last Samurai”) and Joe Rosenberg (“Waist Deep,” “The Heartbreak Kid”), and Mandate Pictures’ Joe Drake (“Stranger Than Fiction,” “30 Days of Night”) and Nathan Kahane (“Juno,” “The Grudge”).

HORSEMEN stars Dennis Quaid (“Vantage Point,” “Far From Heaven,” “The Big Easy”) and Ziyi Zhang (“Memoirs of A Geisha,” “Hero,” “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”). The film’s co-stars include Lou Taylor Pucci (“Thumbsucker”), Clifton Collins, Jr. (“Babel,” “Capote”), Patrick Fugit (“Almost Famous”), Barry Shabaka Henley (“Miami Vice”), Eric Balfour (“The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”), Chelcie Ross (“Waking Up In Reno”), as well as Paul Dooley (“For Your Consideration”) and Peter Stormare (“Fargo”) and both of whom are reunited with
The film also re-teams Åkerlund with director of photography Eric Broms and costume designer B., both of whom were a part of the director’s team on “Spun.” The creative production team also includes production designer Sandy Cochrane (“Chaos Theory”) and film editor Jim May (“The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” “G.I. Joe”) and Todd Miller (“Armageddon,” “Transformers”), with music by Jan A.P. Kaczmarek.
In his 2002 directorial debut “Spun,” director Jonas Åkerlund took audiences to the gritty, grotesque, toxic and, at times, humorously absurd underworld of methamphetamine addiction – the amped addicts, the cookers and their hookers and The Man and his boys who kept the cycle spinning.
Now, in HORSEMEN, Åkerlund brings us to a very different world. This time it’s a place where seeming normalcy collides head-on with teeming abnormality as a modern day cop becomes transfixed on a series of brutal and bizarre killings rooted in the Biblical prophecy of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. He is so gripped by the murders, he is losing his grip as a father and his two young sons are becoming victims of another kind altogether.
