Genre film distributor Raven Banner Entertainment has picked up the worldwide sales rights to the Harvey Keitel starrer Cut Throats Nine from director Rodrigo Gudino, says THR.
The remake of the classic 1972 Spanish film from producers Rue Morgue Cinema and Canspan Film Factory has had Keitel, “Hannibal’s” Mads Mikkelsen and Jordi Molla attached since 2009.
“The action is set in 1972 in the American west where a wagonload of murderous convicts is attacked by bandits. Only seven survive, along with a sergeant (Mikkelsen) and his beautiful young daughter. Stumbling toward its destination, the convoy degenerates into savagery, with survivors being choked, stabbed, shot and burned.”
The producers have now added Julian Richings and Kris Holden-Reid to the cast ahead of an early-2014 production.
Raven Banner, which helped distributor Gudino’s feature debut, the Vanessa Redgrave starrer The Last Will and Testament of Rosalind Leigh, will start shopping the updated western/horror pic for pre-sales in Cannes this week.
