Throughout his illustrious career Bill Pullman has genre hopped with the best of them, and though he played Ed Masterson in Lawrence Kasdan’s vastly underrated Wyatt Earp, he’s not exactly known as a Western guy.
That may change with the impending release of The Ballad of Lefty Brown, as Pullman is getting great word of mouth as the titular protagonist. After his friend, newly elected Senator Edward Johnson (Peter Fonda), is killed, Lefty Brown (Pullman) travels the Montana plains to catch the outlaws. Helping him on his mission is a novice gunslinger (Diego Josef) and a worn down U.S. Marshall (Sons of Anarchy’s Tommy Flanagan) who is unfortunately more proficient with the bottle than a six shooter. Jim Caviezel, Kathy Baker, and Joe Anderson round out the cast.
The picture is the second feature of writer-director Jared Moshe (his 2012 cinematic debut was another Western titled Dead Man’s Burden). Check out the trailer below and leave us a comment!
The Ballad of Lefty Brown hits DirecTV November 9 and has a theatrical run starting December 15.
