From filmmakers Logan and Noah Miller, the indie thriller Sweetwater, set in the late 1800s, tells the tale of what happens when a fanatical religious leader (Jason Isaacs), a renegade sheriff (Ed Harris) and a former prostitute (January Jones) collide in a blood triangle, on the rugged plains of the New Mexico Territory. During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Jason Isaacs talked about what attracted him to this quite brutal and violent story, how brave and bold he thinks the Miller brothers are, as filmmakers, how much fun it was to play such an evil and crazy character, and the biggest challenges in pulling off the role. He also talked about how he feels about the way his former NBC series Awake turned out, that he hopes to return to television soon, and how he’s next going to be shooting roles in the David Ayer film Fury, »

Whether you know Jason Isaacs as Lucius Malfoy of the Harry Potter films or the vicious British colonel of The Patriot or just about anything else he's done, you know he can have a terrifying screen presence when he puts his mind to it. But just in case you needed extra proof, check out this exclusive new clip from the indie Western Sweetwater, which is now available on VOD and in select theaters. A Sundance Film Festival selection earlier this year, Sweetwater stars January Jones-- very much breaking out of Betty Draper mode-- as a woman forced to fight to protect her land when a malevolent preacher (Isaacs) tries to steal it from her. The film also stars Ed Harris, and in the clip above you can see Jones standing behind her husband (Eduardo Noriega) as he attempts to negotiate a truce. but one you know won't last. Fpr »
Sweetwater isn't easy to enjoy. For such a spare and tight film, there seems to be a lot of dead air. Part of that is because it brings together three narratives that don't mesh until nearly halfway into the film. The fun really begins once those three characters converge and things are truly sent spiraling. Like a ricocheting bullet, it's hard to determine where Sweetwater --directed by Logan Miller from a script by Andrew McKenzie, Logan, and brother Noah Miller -- is going to end. Violent and dark, this feels like a William Friedkin-esque attempt at a Western set in the New Mexico territory around the 1800s. There are rare spurts of humor and most of it is from the way that people are dispatched...

Following his wrap-up as Lucius Malfoy in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II in 2011, Jason Isaacs has laid pretty low key. Last year, he starred in the sadly canceled, but stellar, NBC series "Awake," and he can be seen in indies like Sweetwater and A Single Shot from this year as well. Now he's getting back into some big films with an impressive cast as THR reports Isaacs has joined the cast of David Ayer's World War II tank thriller Fury. The film already stars Brad Pitt, Shia Labeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena and Jon Bernthal as the five crew members of an American Sherman tank called Fury in the final days of Ww II. Isaacs has joined the film as the confident captain and veteran on the team to which Pitt looks to for advice. That makes six people rather than five, so maybe Isaacs isn't »

When it comes to cold, distant parents who are hard on their kids, Draco Malfoy's dad, Lucius, could take the crown, but he'd have some mighty stiff competition from Betty Francis (formerly Draper). The pair would be a pretty fearsome duo if they ever were to meet, and while the characters probably never will, Jason Issacs and January Jones are facing off in the Western Sweetwater opening October 11th. According to the movie's synopsis Issacs plays a fanatical religious leader, Jones takes on the role of a former prostitute, and Ed Harris is in the mix as a violent renegade sheriff. From the looks of the recently released theatrical trailer, it seems that everyone involved is a pretty ruthless character, but at least this time around they don't have any children to torment.

We've got a new trailer for the January Jones and Ed Harris western Sweetwater for you to check out! I think this looks like a great flick, but then I think I like westerns a little more than most people. The film is set in 1886, and the story follows a young widow who risks everything to avenge her husband’s murder at the hands of a brutal sheep rancher.
This is a very different role for Jones, but I think it looks better than most of the roles she's been involved with. The movie premiered at Sundance earlier this year, and unfortunately I missed it. Here's the synopsis,
Sarah, a former prostitute living on the New Mexico plains with her husband Miguel (Eduardo Noriega), who are both having to deal with overbearing landowner and religious fanatic Prophet Josiah (Jason Isaacs). When Josiah has Miguel killed, Sarah takes the law into »

"Hasn't beaten me yet..." Grab your six-shooter and rally 'round for this fun trailer. A theatrical Us trailer has debuted for Sweetwater, or Sweet Vengeance, a western from director Logan Miller (of Touching Home) starring January Jones with the "strawberry hair, purple dress, all painted up." She ends up in a "blood triangle" involving a renegade Sheriff, played by Ed Harris, and a fanatical religious leader, played by Jason Isaacs. As much fun as this looks, I can't say I'm that interested, especially considering I haven't heard much positive buzz at all. Ed Harris looks like he'll be entertaining to watch but that's about it. Enjoy. Here's the full Us trailer for Logan Miller's Sweetwater (aka Sweet Vengeance), found via The Playlist: In the late 1800s, a fanatical religious leader, a renegade Sheriff, and a former prostitute collide in a blood triangle on the rugged plains of the New Mexico Territory. »

With "Mad Men" now stretching out its final season across two years, the cast can rest a bit easier knowing they've still got their main gig to keep them in the limelight. None of the lead actors have really broken out on their own in the movie world just yet, so January Jones won't have to worry too much if her western vengeance flick doesn't quite catch on. Premiering at Sundance earlier this year to rather muted and sometimes poisonous reviews, "Sweetwater" is quietly making its way to theaters in a couple of weeks, and a brand new trailer is here. Co-starring Ed Harris, Jason Isaacs and Eduardo Noreiga, the film is set in 1886 New Mexico and follows a young widow who seeks revenge for the murder of her husband at the hands of a brutal rancher. "Betty Draper Got A Gun." The promo spot at least has fun and »

We all knew Betty Draper had a mean streak, but now she gets bloody and vengeful.
In the 1800s-set Western "Sweetwater," January Jones ("Mad Men") plays Sarah, a former prostitute who embarks on a quest of violent revenge when a fanatical religious leader (Jason Isaacs, "The Patriot") kills her husband. Donning a signature purple dress, Sarah goes from town to town hunting down any and everyone involved with the murder with the help of a radical sheriff (Ed Harris).
In the exclusive new poster for "Sweetwater" Jones flaunts a handgun and a shotgun, resembling an R-rated version of Patricia Arquette's Kissin' Kate Barlow (you remember "Holes") more than her usual uptight housewife. Let's hope her Sarah isn't too sweet in "Sweetwater" and more ruthless.
"Sweetwater" shoots into theaters and on VOD on October 11. Check out the poster below.

Logan Miller’s “Sweetwater” (titled “Sweet Vengeance” in the credits, though it carries the first title at Fantasia) is an idiosyncratic western with a decidedly contemporary sensibility, merging a stoic approach to violence with an off-kilter, nearly Monty Python sensibility. It’s an unusual fit, but an intriguing one, and despite the silence of the film’s leisurely-paced scenes of dialogue, there’s never truly a dull moment. Miller has a fantastic cast to thank for that luxury. The central conflict involves a minor land dispute between a couple (Eduardo Noriega, January Jones) and the neighboring, cult-ish priest (a delicious Jason Isaacs) who believes in cleansing his holy land with the blood of blasphemers. When the pontificating pastor puts a bullet in Miguel (Noriega), its ex-prostitute Sarah (Jones) who opts for revenge, just as the town begins discussing this flamboyant, porcelain beauty with a fiery temper. At the same time, »
