Genre Distributor Raven Banner Entertainment Snags Worldwide Sales Rights to Cut-Throats Nine Remake at Cannes
Raven Banner Entertainment has acquired the worldwide sales rights to the remake of the 1972 Spanish thriller Cut-Throats Nine (Condenados a vivir).
To be helmed by Rodrigo Gudino, who made his feature directorial debut with The Last Will and Testament of Rosalind Leigh, the remake will feature an impressive list of stars, including Kris Holden-Reid and Julian Richings, who join Harvey Keitel, Mads Mikklesen, and Jordi Malla. The film will be produced by Gudino’s Rue Morgue Cinema and Canspan Film Factory and will go into production in early 2014.
The Hollywood Reporter tells us that Raven Banner will begin shopping the film for pre-sales this week at the Cannes Film Festival, which runs from May 15th to May 26th in Cannes, France.
Here's the original film's synopsis:
A wagon load of convicts on their way to prison is being escorted through the mountains by a cavalry troop. They are attacked by a bandit gang, and only a sergeant, his beautiful young daughter, and an assortment of seven sadistic, murderous prisoners survive, and they are left without horses or a wagon. The sergeant must find a way to get his prisoners to their destination while protecting his daughter, watching out for the still pursuing bandits, and trying to determine which one of the prisoners was the man who raped and murdered his wife.
