The Kid trailer: Ethan Hawke & Dane DeHaan take on legendary roles
Lionsgate has released the first trailer for The Kid, the upcoming western pic starring Oscar nominee Ethan Hawke (Boyhood, The Magnificent Seven, Training Day) as Sheriff Pat Garrett and Dane DeHaan (A Cure for Wellness, Chronicle, Life) as Billy the Kid. You can check out the trailer now below!
In The Kid, a young boy, Rio (Jake Schur), is forced to go on the run across the American Southwest to save his sister (Leila George) from his uncle (Chris Pratt). Along the way, he encounters Garrett on the hunt for the infamous outlaw Billy the Kid. Ultimately Rio must choose which type of man he is going to become, the outlaw or the man of valor, and will use the self-realization in a final act to save his family.
The Kid serves as Vincent D’Onofrio’s (Daredevil) feature film directorial debut. The movie was written by Andrew Lanham (The Glass Castle, Just Mercy) based on a story from D’Onofrio and Lanham.
Adam Baldwin (The Last Ship) also stars in the project produced by Jordan Schur, Nick Thurlow, Sam Maydew, and David Mimran from Mimran Schur Pictures and Suretone Pictures.
The Kid will be released on March 8.
