The Dark Divide is based on the true story of renowned butterfly expert Dr. Robert Pyle’s (David Cross) perilous 1995 journey across one of America’s largest undeveloped wildlands. Pyle was encouraged by his dying wife Thea (Debra Messing) to search for specimens and get away from her for a while. He soon finds himself in over his head on an epic, life-changing expedition through Washington’s Gifford Pinchot National Forest in search of new species of butterflies. During his six-week adventure Pyle battles self-doubt, the grueling trail, and the people and creatures who call this forest home. Deep in the heart of The Dark Divide, he makes a discovery that challenges everything he knows about the natural world.
This comedy-drama adventure film is directed by Tom Putnam (Static, Shafted!, The Hottie & The Nottie). Its screenplay is written by Putnam, based on the book “Where Bigfoot Walks: Crossing the Dark Divide” by Dr. Robert Pyle. The film stars David Cross, Debra Messing, Cameron Esposito, Gary Farmer, Patterson Hood, David Koechner, Kimberly Guerrero, and Dyami Thomas.
