A MAGNIFICENT DEATH FROM A SHATTERED HAND … ?

2 Dec

Let me confess that in viewing the rather longish (9:47) informal preview (below) for A Magnificent Death from a Shattered Hand (2014) by Thomas Jane, I had to wonder if this wasn’t a hoax ?? The internet – especially YouTube – is famous for movie hoax’s – especially phony trailers for films that don’t really exist. Watch this – if you will – and you’ll see what I mean. Apart from this, it appears to be a legitimate project. I hope so, because, again we have a movie that boasts a rather excellent cast:

SHATTERED HAND POSTERs

Synopsis: Excerpt from Beyond Hollywood (.com)
http://www.beyondhollywood.com/two-early-posters-for-thomas-janes-upcoming-western-a-magnificent-death-from-a-shattered-hand/

” … Thomas Jane (of “Punisher” fame) is cooking up a Western called “A Magnificent Death from a Shattered Hand” that is apparently set to go into production early 2013 for, possibly, a 2014 release.
A Magnificent Death from a Shattered Hand” will be coming to you courtesy of Jane, who co-wrote the script and will direct as well as star. Jeremy Irons and Nick Nolte are also in the cast, about “an ex-soldier [who] is relentlessly tracked down for the murder and rape of a well-to-do woman”, forcing him to “face mercenaries, tribal warriors, and women of sin to clear his name and uncover the true story behind the manhunt.”

Rick, if you thot Les Petroleuses / 1971 was “interesting”, then you might wanna look at this …

Bandidas / 2006

It’s almost a copy the Les Petroleuses, but replaces Bardot and Cardinale
with Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz.
