Marcello and Jay Arnold penned the script, which is based on the final book in Beth Reekles’ trilogy (the first book was published on Wattpad in 2010 when she was 15).

He Went That Way is a undoubtedly a journey of curious tensions and bonds between two and at times three interesting characters all on their own path,” Darling said. “A cinematic tale on the road across the U.S. in the early ’60s where people come with a rawness forged from the landscapes they inhabit. It is for our two leads Jacob and Zachary as well as myself, a great opportunity to explore with an improvised sensibility.”
