The film will begin lensing this May in New Mexico and Texas with Tommy Lee Jones and Javier Bardem in talks to headline what is expected to be a strong ensemble cast.

Ethan Coen penned the script with his brother Joel who will be directing the feature, which is set in West Texas in 1980. The story is about a young Vietnam vet who stumbles over the remnants of a drug deal gone bad. He’s hunted by two extremely vicious assassins who want the money back.
