If there's one Ray you'd call on to track down a wanted fugitive across a barren wilderness, it'd be Ray Winstone. Actually it'd probably be Ray Mears, but let's assume he's busy stalking gnus on the plains of Africa or bothering racoons in the Rockies.
Winstone it is then, which is handy because his new movie Tracker calls on him to do just that. Set in New Zealand at the turn of the last century, it casts him as burly outdoorsman and Boer War veteran Arjan van Diemen, promised a giant bounty if he can capture a Maori seaman (Attack Of The Clones' Temuera Morrison) accused of killing a British soldier.
As you can see from this clip, there's a twist: Kereama is innocent of the crime. Van Diemen, meanwhile, doesn't have much time for the English, what with being a Boer and all, giving the pair common cause for an uneasy alliance. Sadly, we think this may blow a hole in a possible Jango Fett/Beowulf death match.
Happily, it's all set against the backdrop of New Zealand's beautiful South Island, so expect LOTR-grade settings - albeit not during this kinda murky glimpse at the fight that precipitates the manhunt. For a glimpse of Winstone's burly tracker, an absentee from the clip, head here.
