First time feature film director, Courtney Hoffman will bring her blood-soaked vengeance western to new Mexico in February. With the success of Godless, the pending success of Hostiles it’s exciting to see another big western coming to town. Hoffman is a veteran costume designer who’s worked on major movies such as Django Unchained, The Hateful Eight and recently Baby Driver. The film is an adaptation of her acclaimed short film of the same name released earlier this year.

Lou Diamond Phillips and Danny Trejo will be back in New Mexico for the feature film Big Kill – an action western about a “tenderfoot” from Philadelphia, two misfit gamblers on the run, and a deadly preacher who have a date with destiny in a boom town gone bust called Big Kill. The west is reborn in this classic morality tale of good versus evil.
