Vancouver-based Brightlight Pictures have teamed up with UK producer Mark Sandell to co-produce the ‘Western’ action horror Save a Bullet For Me, Bloody Disgusting exclusively learned.
Save a Bullet For Me is the latest offering from The Bunny Game (pictured) writer-director Adam Rehmeier.
Set amidst a 19th century backdrop, the film focuses on the aftermath of a brutal massacre, where two wounded frontiersmen make a desperate last stand against an Indian war party.
“This is not your grandfather’s Western. There are no heroes or morality tales. This is a visceral, animal of a film, stripped down to the most primal fight-or-flight level possible,” Rehmeier told us.
“For me, this film is an opportunity to combine several of my favorite genres in an exciting way, to create something that hasn’t been seen before in the cinema” he continued. “It delivers enough splatter to quench any hardcore horror fan’s palate, yet the relentless, wall-to-wall action and historical backdrop will open it up to a wider audience.”
Brightlight Pictures’ Shawn Williamson joins Mark Sandell to produce.
Save a Bullet For Me is due to be shot in British Columbia in late 2014.
