Josh Hartnett to Star in Post-Apocalyptic Western Gunslinger

14 September 2009 9:40 AM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Would humanity revert to the days of the wild west if the world was suddenly thrust into a post-apocalyptic future? It's certainly an intriguing possibility, and one that could make for a great movie. Post-apocalyptic films have often borrowed elements of westerns in the past, and now director Chris Nahon (Blood: The Last Vampire) will again be fusing the two genres with a film called Gunslinger (no relation to the 1956 Roger Corman film of the same name, as far as I know). Described as a "revenge-driven tale set in the near future in the snowy wasteland of a post-apocalyptic America", the story centers on two brothers who try to track down the gang responsible for the death of their parents. Josh Hartnett has signed on to star, while Mark Williams (Running Scared, The Cooler) will produce. There's no word on who is writing the script or where the story came from, »
