Vaughn and Hemsworth are among the stars of director Clark Duke's thriller.

Thanks to his collaborations with director S. Craig Zahler (Brawl in Cell Block 99; Dragged Across Concrete), Vince Vaughn has recently reinvented himself as a wise-cracking tough guy. It's a guise he appears to be continuing in actor Clark Duke's directorial debut, Arkansas, an ensemble crime thriller which stars Vaughn as Frog, the head of a Deep South drug cartel.

Liam Hemsworth and director Duke play a pair of Frog's underlings who find themselves in trouble when their boss believes they're attempting to steal his empire from under him. The film also stars Michael Kenneth Williams, Vivica A. Fox, Eden Brolin, Chandler Duke and John Malkovich.

Arkansas is on US blu-ray/Digital/VOD May 5th. A UK/ROI release has yet to be announced.

Check out the trailer, a pair of posters and the official synopsis below.

The official synopsis reads:

In Clark Duke’s directorial debut, Kyle (Liam Hemsworth) and Swin (Clark Duke) live by the orders of an Arkansas-based drug kingpin named Frog (Vince Vaughn), whom they’ve never met. Posing as junior park rangers by day, they operate as low-level drug couriers by night under the watchful eye of Frog’s proxies (John Malkovich and Vivica A. Fox). Swin then settles into his day job by taking up a relationship with Johnna (Eden Brolin) against orders to blend in while Kyle continues to question his night job by trying to figure out who Frog really is. Their world is then upended after one too many inept decisions, and Kyle, Swin, and Johnna find themselves directly in Frog’s crosshairs, who mistakenly sees them as a threat to his empire. Based on John Brandon’s best-selling book of the same name, ARKANSAS weaves together three decades of Deep South drug trafficking to explore the cycle of violence that turns young men into criminals, and old men into legends.
