As we told you here, rumor had it that an upcoming period western directed by Vincent D’Onofrio was headed to New Mexico.
D’Onfrio has confirmed the news and even made a very special appearance at the NMFO Film & Media Conference today in Albuquerque.
The breaking news is that “Guardians of the Galaxy” star Chris Pratt will star in the film! In April Pratt touched on his upcoming role with MSN Entertainment, revealing that he will step into the boots of the infamous Billy The Kid.
Ethan Hawke will take up the role of Sheriff Pat Garrett for the film. All three stars previously worked together on “Magnificent Seven” which filmed in New Mexico in 2015.
OHI sources confirm that the trio will re-team as “The Kid” begins production in the Duke City next month. Dane DeHaan (Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, The Amazing Spider-Man 2) will reportedly star, serving as the film’s eyes and narrator who is torn between his admiration of the gunfighter legend and his need to save his family.
