Over the years, Robin Hardy’s “companion piece” to his original 1973 Wicker Man has undergone more title changes than I can possibly recall (I’ve done a lot of drugs in those years). The last we heard it was called May Day, but Moviehole got word that the film has undergone another title switch but that, at last, it’s finally ready to get in front of cameras.
Now it’s called Cowboys for Christ and is set to star Christopher Lee (who starred in the original Wicker Man, you may recall) and Faye Dunaway as a couple (she’s a Christian singing star, he’s a Texas cowboy) who head out to Scotland for a music festival. Instead of digging on bands and smoking some herb, they realize that the show is actually just a mask for a horrific pagan ritual of sacrifice and murder. Always a bummer if that’s not what you signed up for, believe me.
Moviehole says that Cowboys for Christ is set to shoot in Texas and Scotland starting on September 10th. Check out their story about it (linked above) for a breakdown of the two characters.
