The Iron Orchard, the film written by a Fort Worth man with serious energy industry connections, will premiere in the area on Feb. 22, Santa Rita Film Co. announced today. Also, a new trailer for Santa Rita Film Co’s THE IRON ORCHARD has debuted on Apple Trailers.
THE IRON ORCHARD was the name given to the sea of drilling rigs against west Texas skies in search of liquid gold and the name of Tom Pendleton’s 1966 novel that defined generations of Texas to follow. Pendleton was a pseudonym. He was actually Edmund Van Zandt of the storied Van Zandt family. Set in the oil fields of Texas, THE IRON ORCHARD is described in a news release as “a vibrant, brutal story of the men who labored, lusted and gambled their money in search of a prize few were lucky enough to find. It is the adventure of violent men set against an uncompromising time. It is also the story of the healing love of one woman for the one man she would not lose.”
Shot entirely in Texas, the cast and crew all hail from somewhere in the Lone Star State. Director Ty Roberts is from Midland, Producer Camille Scioli Chambers is from Lubbock, Producer Houston Hill calls Hideaway home, and actors Lane Garrison and Austin Nicholas also have Texas ties (Lane is a Dallasite while Austin was born and raised in Austin).
