John Travolta and Ethan Hawke to star in Ti West's In a Valley of Violence

03.18.2014

One of my favorite writer-directors in horror right now is Ti West. He completely won me over with THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL. When I hear that hes up to a new project, it definitely stays on my radar.

The next project for West is a revenge western titled IN A VALLEY OF VIOLENCE, and it will be set in the 1890s. Thats not the most interesting part of the newsthe lead stars will be John Travolta and Ethan Hawke. With no other plot details, we cant for sure say that its going to have anything to do with the horror genre. Though, I would like to see a western horror. Preferably something terrible.

If it is a horror flick, it will be a first for Travolta. Hawke has already dipped his toes in with films like THE PURGE and SINISTER. Honestly, Im just here to report on the pairing. Id usually piss and moan about how this is beneath someone like Hawke but its West so it doesnt bother me that much. The pair should create an interesting dynamic. Im not surprised with Hawkes choices after GETAWAY with co-star Selena Gomez. Hawke, look at any of the BEFORE series with Linklater. Youre better than that.

No date for when production will begin.

The phrase "new John Travolta movie" usually makes me shudder

and Ethan Hawke's been off-and-on when he's not with Richard Linklater, but this sounds like it has potential.

Oh, as darkwind72 already mentioned, Travolta was in the 1970's version of CARRIE, opposite Sissy Spacek.

I wonder if Travolta could get a supporting role for Adela Dazeem.

West is one of the best horror directors going, glad he's getting some studio recognition, assuming this a major studio project. Hawke must not ask for much per role at all if he keeps starring in those low budget horror flicks.
