Travolta & Hawke Head For Valley Of Violence
They're starring in a Ti Western

19 March 2014  |  Written by Owen Williams  |  Source: The Hollywood Reporter

Ethan Hawke has made a comfortable home at Jason Blum's indie horror production company Blumhouse recently, with Sinister and The Purge. And he's staying put for his next movie, co-starring with John Travolta in In A Valley Of Violence. Ti West (House Of The Devil, The Innkeepers) is the director.

Genre-wise this appears on the surface to be an unusual Blumhouse project, since its being described as a Western rather than a horror flick. Revenge seems to be the order of the day, however, with that title indicating that blood will be up and the bodycount might be high. Given the pedigree of the studio and the director, we'd doubt this is going to be a My Darling Clementine. Expect something more Corbucci than Ford.

No plot details have yet been released, other than that the film is set in the 1890s (so the dying days of the Old West, but not as late as The Wild Bunch). Hawke as a sheriff or a bounty hunter, with Travolta giving us one of his scenery-chewing villains à la The Taking Of Pelham 123 and Broken Arrow? We don't know, but we're looking forward to finding out.

Blum is, of course, producing, but there's no start date so far. West's most recent horror The Sacrament is out in the UK in sometime in April.
