Despite the apparent casting of Chris Pine, Ben Foster and Jeff Bridges in the lead roles, and the presence of Starred Up director David Mackenzie calling the shots, new dramatic thriller Comancheria had managed to skim largely under the radar. Screen International brings word that it’s now shooting as part of a roundup of film acquisitions{ =nofollow}.

Details about Comancheria are scarce at this point, but we do at least now know that Pine and Foster are playing a divorced father and his ex-con brother who must pull off a desperate scheme to save their family’s farm.

The likes of Katy Mixon, Dale Dickey and Kevin Rankin are in the cast, and the script comes from Sicario’s Taylor Sheridan. It’s been snapped up by indie distributors Ascot Elite, a Swiss team that has also nabbed deals for the likes of Quentin Tarantino’s** The Hateful Eight** and Gold, which stars Matthew McConaughey.

Quite when Comancheria will hit these shores is anyone’s guess, as while it has US (and now Swiss) distribution, there’s no sign of a UK company aboard yet. Still, we’d expect to see it some time next year, assuming a deal closes.
