Josh Hartnett is the Gunslinger. All sounds a bit Jon Shannow to me.

Ed Sullivan TheatreJosh Hartnett is set to star in the revenge-driven Gunslinger, set in the near future in the snow-covered wasteland of post-apocalyptic America, according to Variety.

Hartnett will play a man who, along with his brother, sets out to kill the gang who killed their parents. Chris Nahon (Blood: The Last Vampire) is directing, with Mark Williams and 2B Pictures’ Albert Martinez Martin producing.

“This story takes a unique and startling look at what might happen when the lawlessness of the Old West returns … but with better weapons,” Williams said.

Production will begin in Canada early next year.

Now the basic plot of this sounds an awful lot like the brilliant books by David Gemmell featuring Jon Shannow, The Jerusalem Man. In them there has been an apocalyptic event and everything has gone back to an Old West scenario.

I’m not having a go, just saying. Any post apocalyptic Old West style film gets my vote.
