Rue Morgue Cinema and Raven Banner Entertainment have welcomed guitar legend and film producer Slash as executive producer for the western thriller “Cut Throats Nine.”
The Guns N’ Roses legend is now involved with a project that’ll star Mads Mikkelsen (“The Hunt”, “Hannibal”), Harvey Keitel (“Reservoir Dogs”), Julian Richings (“Man Of Steel”, “X-Men: The Last Stand”) and Kris Holden-Ried (“Lost Girl”, “The Tudors”).
The film is being helmed by writer/director Rodrigo Gudiño (“The Last Will And Testament Of Rosalind Leigh”) and producers Marco Pecota and Jake Koseleci.
Production is slated to commence in late 2014.
“I’m really excited about seeing ‘Cut Throats Nine’ come to life,” commented Slash. “It’s a brilliant script with great characters. The story is gritty, tough, shocking and ballsy with great twists and turns throughout.”
The film is a retelling of the classic 1972 Spanish film which updates and expands upon the themes of the original for a modern audience, while retaining the edge that made the original a cult classic.
Both a western and a thriller, “Cut Throats Nine” approaches the genre with the philosophy that the biggest monster of them all is a human being pushed to its limits.
I’m out. Not interested.
