Following reports that villainous film vet Peter Stormare and wrestler turned leading man “Stone Cold” Steve Austin are set to star, young Jaimie Alexander (Sif, Thor) and Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights, Grey’s Anatomy) have now been added to the cast of the modern-day western scheduled to begin filming this month in Belen, New Mexico.
An actual Arnold sighting down Valencia way last week, confirmation of construction and crews readying sets and completing renovations to city buildings, as reported by the Valencia County News-Bulletin, is increasing anticipation of the upcoming shoot.
