The Last Rites of Ransom Pride – Cult Western in the making?

Posted by LiveFor on February 3, 2010

No matter how long I do this site I am still surprised by the amount of films that slip by. Case in point is a cool sounding Western called The Last Rites of Ransom Pride. It has probably been knocking around on the web for a while now, but I’d not heard of it until now. Twitch had a photo of Peter Dinklage and that’s what got me onto it.

What makes it cool? A number of thing – The first is that it is a Western and stars Kris Kristofferson (Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid, Convoy, Blade) and Peter Dinklage (Living in Oblivion, Elf, Saint John of Las Vegas) with a pair of shotguns. Both very cool actors in my book. Plus Dinklage’s character is called The Dwarf

The second is the plot – The outlaw Juliette Flowers battles a murderous Reverend, posse of bounty hunters and a vicious Mexican Bruja to bring the body of her dead lover home to Glory, Texas.

Nothing says cool better than a murderous Reverend and a posse of bounty hunters. Cote De Pablo (NCIS) is also down to play the Bruja or Witch.

Of course, just because it sounds cool doesn’t mean it will be cool. All depends up the final viewing and I will try my best to have a watch of this sometime soon. Anyone over at Nomadic Pictures Entertainment want to send me a screener of it?

Directed by Tiller Russell it also stars Scott Speedman, Dwight Yoakam, Lizzy Caplan (True Blood), Jon Foster, Jason Priestley (Tombstone, Beverley Hills 90210), Earl Brown.

I apologise for the abundant usage of the word cool in this post. You all cool with that?
