Bad Country (also known as Whiskey Bay) is a film based on a true story[1] starring Matt Dillon, Willem Dafoe, Amy Smart, and Tom Berenger. The film started shooting in Baton Rouge and Angola, Louisiana on August 7, 2012.[2]


When Baton Rouge police detective Bud Carter arrests contract killer Jesse Weiland, he convinces Jesse to help the police to destroy the South's most powerful crime ring. When the syndicate orders Carter's death and Weiland is identified as an informant, the two team up to fight the mob and catch the crime boss who ordered the hit.


The film was in post-production when director Chris Brinker died suddenly on February 8, 2013.[3][4] Brinker was to be presented with the Robert Smalls Indie Vision Award at the 7th annual Beaufort, South Carolina International Film Festival in February 2013.
