Cut Throats Nine – Rodrigo Gudino's long-mooted remake – has attracted another star: Slash, guitar legend and producer. He'll join previously announced cast members Mads Mikkelsen, Harvey Keitel, Julian Richings and Kris Holden Reid.
The film follows a wagonload of convicts as they travel the northern mountains to carry out their death sentences. Following a surprise attack from a gang of bandits, only the sergeant, his beautiful young daughter and seven of the most sadistic, murderous men alive survive the assault.
The film is a Rue Morgue Cinema and Raven Banner Entertainment production. Filming is expected to begin this year on the western/thriller.
Gudino previously helmed The Last Will and Testament of Rosalind Leigh.
“I'm really excited about seeing Cut Throats Nine come to life,” commented Slash. “It's a brilliant script with great characters. The story is gritty, tough, shocking and ballsy with great twists and turns throughout."
Cut Throats Nine is a retooling of the classic 1972 Spanish film which updates and expands upon the themes of the original for a modern audience, while retaining the edge that made the original a cult classics. It approaches the genre with the philosophy that the biggest monster of them all is a human being pushed to its limits.
