A unique-sounding horror project with a Western spin is on the way from Jimmy Lee Combs (Terror Tales) as Deadline reports the upcoming film has found its two leads. Spirit Reckoning will star Lew Temple (The Devil's Rejects, The Walking Dead) and Sean Patrick Flanery (The Boondock Saints, Saw 3D) as a pair of crazed gunfighters, Ottis Clement and Lawson Lovette respectively, and is described as a mix of action and horror with some distinct Western elements. Temple also has an upcoming role in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
In the film, Flanery's Lawson is a psychotic gunslinger with some serious revolver skills, making him a perfect candidate to team up with The Skull Cowboy, Sam Conley, on a blood-soaked journey of revenge. On the other hand, Ottis isn't exactly stable either, sparking an intense rivalry between the two as him, his brother Ed, and their crew's leader, Savage Bill, leave chaos and anarchy in their wake.
Combs, who helms the project as writer and director, had the following to say about the upcoming film.[blockquote-0]
Spirit Reckoning begins filming later this year in Colorado and California with a target release date of sometime in 2020. Further details are not yet available at this time, but stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for all the latest news and updates!
