Jason Blum and his Blumhouse productions seem to be announcing a new film almost weekly, and while the films are usually horror, things are about to change.
Ti West, known for directing some of the best horrors of recent years (House of the Devil, Innkeepers, the upcoming The Sacrament) is set to make the big step to a much larger production for a new revenge Western called In a Valley of Violence. Jason Blum’s Blumhouse will be producing, and what’s more, the film is negotiating some big names to star.
According to THR, both John Travolta and Ethan Hawke are currently in talks to appear in West’s film, which makes the entire prospect hugely exciting. Also producing with Blum are West collaborators Jacob Jaffke and Peter Phok.
No plot details have yet been revealed, but it is reported that In a Valley of Violence will be a revenge Western set in the 1890’s.
More on this as it develops.
