    Default All Things: Westerns

    I know this could just as easily have been put in the Action thread, but... **** it.

    ĎBlackthorní Trailer: Sam Shepard Continues the Story of Butch Cassidy



    Itís been said (but unsubstantiated) that Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid were killed in a standoff with the Bolivian military in 1908. In BLACKTHORN, Cassidy (Shepard) survived, and is quietly living out his years under the name James Blackthorn in a secluded Bolivian village. Tired of his long exile from the US and hoping to see his family again before he dies, Cassidy sets out on the long journey home. But when an unexpected encounter with an ambitious young criminal (Eduardo Noriega) derails his plans, he is thrust into one last adventure, the likes of which he hasnít experienced since his glory days with the Sundance Kid.

    I support this thread simply by posting this...



    from the Ry Cooder soundtrack to Walter Hill chanelling Peckinpah this is one of the great underrated contemporary westerns. Recently converted to blu-ray, if you have not seen this movie I cannot pimp it highly enough.

    what? no one is commenting on the latest greatest western, Cowboys v Aliens?

    I guess the day of the cowboy is truly dead.

    There was a thread about it back when it was released. Consensus was not very positive on it.

    John Carpenter Wants Amy Adams To Star In His “Gothic Western” (In His Dreams) > The Playlist

    While speaking at a Fright Night Film Festival in Louisville, Kentucky way back in July, Carpenter did a Q&A with Fangoria Magazine. Slavishly timely, the magazine has just now uploaded the footage to their site (via Bleeding Cool), and with it details of this western have emerged (somewhat).

    “I got into this business to make Westerns, and I got tyepcast as a horror director after ‘Halloween,’” the ornery filmmaker explained. “My dream was to have a career in directing movies so I went wherever they wanted me to go… I’m right now working on a little gothic Western, we’ll see if we can get it set up. It’s hard to sell Westerns these days, meaning it’s hard to raise money because they’re not real commercial.” Somewhere, Johnny Depp and Gore Verbinksi are nodding in agreement.

    He also clarified that it wouldn’t be a horror-western, either. “They tried it in the old days, they tried ‘Jesse James Meets Frankenstein’ and ‘Billy the Kid Meets Dracula’… a Western should be a Western.”

    The project is obviously a long way off, but that didn’t stop Carpenter from speculation on who he’d enjoy working with. “Amy Adams…she’s an unbelievable actress, what a talent,” he said, while accidentally cluing us into the fact that he’s a secret “Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian” fan. “I’d love to work with her,” he concluded.

    Thomas Jane Gets Very, Very Specific About When Hung Will End -- Vulture

    Buried in there...

    He continued to discuss matters of manhood while telling us about a Western he wrote and plans to direct, entitled The Magnificent Death From a Shattered Hand. "Marlon Brando said acting's not a profession for real men," laughed Jane. "It's not a real man's job. And I agree with him, so I'm going to direct."
    I'm already pretty much on-board with this.
