I love me a good gunslinger movie. It’s too bad Hollywood just doesn’t make a whole lot of them anymore. Kevin Costner’s “Open Range” was kinda in that genre, though not really. The lead character was an ex-gunslinger of sorts. Anyways, Warner Bros. is looking to add to the disappearing genre with “The Gunslinger”. According to THR, the movie is about an ex-Texas Ranger who pursues his brother’s killer, the same men who took his nephew. We presume much shootin’, horse ridin’, and guys going, “Ma’am” while tipping their hat ensue.
There isn’t a whole lot else known about the movie, except that Andrew Lazar, Matt Reilly and Elisha Holmes will be overseeing the film for Warner Bros, and that the script for “The Gunslinger” was a spec by John Hlavin that the studio snatched up.
Since it’s been ages since we got a good ol fashion revenge tale set in the old west, I’m definitely following up on this as it chugs along through development.
