Western Movies to Keep an Eye Out For

So, let’s say I got curious. I was sat watching Deadwood last night and wondered about the movie of the series I’d heard mentioned. So I IMDb’d it and fell down a western rabbit hole.

Now there isn’t much to learn about it so far, the cast is made up of the cast of the series. Reported to start filming in October and continuing the story of the series. It should hopefully be with us in Spring of next year. 

And then I started digging for gold! Well, actually I searched for other interesting looking westerns. There were a lot so I’ve picked the ones that appealed – here’s my list

Western Movies To Look Out For

Big Kill

Starring Jason Patric (Wayward Pines), Lou Diamond Phillips (Longmire), Christoph Sanders (Last Man Standing), and Danny Trejo (The Flash), Big Kill is the story of four men who have a date with destiny. A Philadelphian tenderfoot, two gamblers on the run, and a deadly preacher. The only release info suggests the USA release date is for this year but we’ll have to keep an eye out for updates on releases in other countries.  

Howlers

Starring Sean Patrick Flanery (The Evil Within), Chad Michael Collins (Extinct), Farah White (Daylights End), and bringing a gunfighter from the old west back from the grave to deal with a bloodthirsty werewolf motorcycle gang. With a 31st October release date in the USA, those of us in the UK will be keeping our eyes open for its release on this side of the pond.

Whispers in the Wind

This is how far down the rabbit hole I went. These movies have been announced and some have names you’ll recognise amongst them. So forgive my indulgence as I get a little too excited a little too soon for these movies still in development.

  • The Cowboys – A remake of the John Wayne classic is in development with Tommy Lee Jones and has been since it’s announcement in 2013.
  • Doc – Doc Holliday teams up with Wyatt Earp in the legendary gunfight at the O.K. Corral and reportedly starring Jeremy Renner.
