I don’t know about the title (sounds a tad high-falutin’ to me), but I’m a sucker for Westerns, and Thomas Jane (of “Punisher” fame) is cooking up a Western called “A Magnificent Death from a Shattered Hand” that is apparently set to go into production early 2013 for, possibly, a 2014 release.
“A Magnificent Death from a Shattered Hand” will be coming to you courtesy of Jane, who co-wrote the script and will direct as well as star. Jeremy Irons and Nick Nolte are also in the cast, about “an ex-soldier [who] is relentlessly tracked down for the murder and rape of a well-to-do woman”, forcing him to “face mercenaries, tribal warriors, and women of sin to clear his name and uncover the true story behind the manhunt.”
Sounds like something you would find Clint Eastwood doing during his Western days.
In case you’re wondering, this won’t be actor Jane’s feature film directorial debut. He did that on 2009’s little-seen “Dark Country”.
Take a look at the two posters below, one courtesy of comic book artist Tim Bradstreet, who spent many a years drawing “Punisher” comic book covers:
