Barry Battles’ “The Baytown Outlaws” used to be called “The Baytown Disco”, which was just such an odd name as to be catchy. The new title, on the other hand, is a bit generic, but I guess that’s what happens when you sell your film to a distributor and said distributor thinks he knows better than you how to sell said film to the general public. Oh well. In any case, the film still looks awfully fun, though if you take a look at the poster above, it’s interesting that the film’s three main stars (the brothers in the film) don’t even get a mention. I can understand Billy Bob Thornton, but Eva Longoria? Really?
After her ex-husband Carlos shoots Celeste three times in the gut, it’s time to play dirty. In the fight for her godson, Rob, she hires three outlawed and redneck brothers to bring him back to her. But nothing can be that simple in the South. What begins as a small rescue mission rises to a southern battle royal. This odd team must shoot their way through gorgeous female assassins, Native American hunters, Federal agents, and a whole lot of metal coming after them, while protecting Celeste’s innocent child.
Also starring Paul Wesley, Serinda Swan, Natalie Martinez, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Zoe Bell, Michael Rapaport, Andre Braugher, Clayne Crawford, Agnes Bruckner, Travis Fimmel, Daniel Cudmore, Arden Cho, and Brea Grant.
The outlaws storm theaters in limited release January 18, 2013, but you’ll be able to get it first on VOD starting December 4th, 2012.
