Two badasses and one of the 1980’s most lovable geeks are set to star in Dead in Tombstone, the Roel Reine-directed action adventure film that begins filming next week. Before you ask why we’re covering it, check out the synopsis – with Micky Rourke playing the devil, how could we resist?
Deadline reports that Anthony Michael Hall, Danny Trejo (pictured), and the aforementioned Mickey Rourke will star in Dead in Tombstone, written by Shane Kuhn and Brendan Cowles. Mike Elliott and Glenn Ross are producing through 1440 Productions, and Universal Pictures will distribute.
Trejo plays Guerrero Hernandez, leader of the Blackwater Gang of outlaws. But after freeing his half-brother, Red (Hall), from prison, Guerrero’s plan to loot the mining town of Edendale backfires spectacularly, when he is double crossed by his half-sibling. After making a deal with the Devil (Rourke), Guerrero comes back from the dead a year later to seek his revenge. The town, which has presciently been renamed Tombstone, will soon have its dusty streets running knee-deep in a river of blood.
Look for more soon!
