Dead For a Dollar, Christoph Waltz, Willem Dafoe, Western

Howdy, pardners. Whispers across the outdated watering gap say that Christoph Waltz (Pulp Fiction, Django Unchained, The Hateful Eight) and Willem Dafoe (The LighthousePlatoonSpider-Man) are saddling as much as star within the Western thriller Dead For a Dollar from Walter Hill (The Warriors, Bullet to the Head).

Directed and written by Hill, Dead For a Dollar is ready in New Mexico Territory, Chihuahua, in 1897. Per Deadline, the story will observe Max Borlund (Waltz), a famed bounty hunter, employed to search out and return Rachel Price, the politically progressive spouse of Nathan Price, a profitable Santa Fe businessman. Max is informed she has been kidnapped by an African American military deserter, Elijah Jones, and is being held for ransom in Mexico. When Max goes south of the border he quickly runs throughout his sworn enemy, expatriate American Joe Cribbens (Dafoe), knowledgeable gambler, generally outlaw, who Max had tracked down and despatched to jail years earlier than.

When Borlund finds Rachel and Elijah hiding deep within the wilds of the Mexican desert, he discovers that Rachel has willingly fled from an abusive husband, and the runaway soldier is, in actual fact, her romantic associate. Max is now confronted with a dilemma: does he return the spouse throughout the border to the person who employed him, or does he support Rachel’s bid for freedom and struggle off ruthless employed weapons and his longtime prison rival.

My guess? Borlund goes to weapons blazing within the spirit of real love.

Dead For a Dollar marks Hill’s first directorial mission in 5 years after helming The Assignment starring Michelle Rodriguez. Jeremy Wall is ready to provide alongside Kirk D’Amico and Carolyn McMasters. Matt Harris co-wrote the script with Hill.

With a robust director and two Hollywood powerhouses to guide the movie, Dead For a Dollar appears like one thing particular within the making. We’ll be holding a detailed eye on this one.
