Actor Norman Reedus has many memorable credits to his name. He is best known for his roles as Daryl Dixon in The Walking Dead universe and Murphy MacManus in the Boondock Saints film series. This summer, Reedus will appear in the Focus Features film The Bikeriders.

The film, written and directed by Jeff Nichols premieres in theaters nationwide on June 21. The film gets its inspiration from a photography book by Danny Lyon which showcases the lives of the Outlaws MC (motorcycle club) based in McCook, Illinois. The film stars Austin Butler, Jodie Comer, Tom Hardy, Michael Shannon, Boyd Holbrook, Norman Reedus and more.

The Bikeriders tells of the fictional MC known as the Vandals led by Hardy's Johnny. Benny (Butler) is the newest member and Kathy (Comer) is his girl. Set in the 60s, the movie chronicles the transformation of the club from a gathering place for outcasts to a gang with criminal motives.
