Taken from the official Copperhead Facebook page, here is our first look at the star of the film, Billy Campbell, who stepped in to replace Jason Patric just last week for the lead role of Abner Beech. This is an nice in-camera shot, as you can see him preparing for a scene in front of a green screen:
