Danny Trejo Will Be Dead In Tombstone
And Mickey Rourke's the Devil...

Danny Trejo Will Be Dead In Tombstone

Mickey Rourke once tangled with the Devil in Angel Heart. This year, however, he’s getting the chance to be Satan in Roel Reine’s new Grindhouse flavoured action adventure Dead In Tombstone, which sees Rourke appearing alongside Danny Trejo and Anthony Michael Hall.

Tombstone finds Trejo as Guerrero Hernandez, the leader of the fearsome Blackwater* gang of outlaws. He hatches a plan to break his half brother Red (Hall) out of the slammer and takes him along on a looting spree in the mining town of Edendale. Trouble is, Red double- crosses him and Guerrero ends up dead.

But a little thing like mortality rarely stops a Danny Trejo character and, after doing a deal with the devil (Rourke), he rises from the dead a year later and unleashes bloody revenge across the town of Tombstone. Thank goodness he picked that place and not Rainbowville or Happy Town…

Reine, who last made straight-to-DVD sequel The Scorpion King 3: Battle For Redemption, will be working from Shane Kuhn and Brendan Cowles’ script and he’ll kick off shooting next week.

*Blackwater? That’s so behind the times. It should surely now be called the Academi gang of outlaws. Okay, so it’s not the most topical gag, but still…

Taking The Mickey
Since Mickey Rourke revived his career with the superb The Wrestler, he's taken a lot of big paydays for the money (who can blame him after being broke?) But I think its time to get back to some serious acting, Mickey. I wouldn't like to see you fritter away your second chance on dross. More
