Louis lives with a disability and is wrongfully convicted of his sister Delia’s murder. After serving 5 years in prison, he’s released and visited by one of the last few people to see his sister alive, who leads him to believe there is more to know about the killing.
Delia’s Gone stars Stephan James, Marisa Tomei, Travis Fimmel, Paul Walter Hauser, and Genelle Williams. It’s directed by Robert Budreau, who also wrote alongside Michael Hamblin.
As Delia’s Gone is set to release in theaters on August 19, 2022, we have an exclusive clip to premiere. “Pull up in front of the pharmacy here,” begins the clip as Louis drives Delia down the street. He pulls over, and she tells him to wait there for 5 minutes while she loads a gun. “What do you need that for?” he asks. “Some things you only get with a gun,” she replies before heading through an alleyway and into a building. Sheriffs approach Louis as he waits in the truck and tell him to move because he’s too close to a fire hydrant. “What’re you doing here anyhow?” they ask. “I’m waiting for Delia,” he replies. The sheriffs walk off and Delia returns before he moves the truck. She urgently tells him to drive. You can watch it in full below.
