We recently saw Slash (below) of Guns ’n’ Roses fame hit the horror scene with the shocker NOTHING LEFT TO FEAR, and now he’s right back at it as Rue Morgue Cinema and Raven Banner Entertainment have announced that Slash has been attached to executive produce the western thriller CUT THROATS NINE.
“I'm really excited about seeing Cut Throats Nine come to life,” commented Slash. “It's a brilliant script with great characters. The story is gritty, tough, shocking and ballsy with great twists and turns throughout.”
CUT THROATS NINE is a retooling of the classic 1972 Spanish film which updates and expands upon the themes of the original for a modern audience, while retaining the edge that made the original a cult classic. Both a western and a thriller, CUT THROATS NINE approaches the genre with the philosophy that the biggest monster of them all is a human being pushed to its limits.
Attached to the project are stars Mads Mikkelsen (above; THE HUNT, “Hannibal”), Harvey Kietel (RESERVOIR DOGS), Julian Richings (MAN OF STEEL), Kris Holden Ried (LOST GIRL), and writer/director Rodrigo Gudino (THE LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF ROSALIND LEIGH).
Production is slated to commence in late 2014.
