Ray Winstone in Tracker

Earlier this year I featured a few trailers for the film Van Diemen's Land about convicts on the run in the Australian wilderness in the early 1800's. Empire has premiered a few new photos for a different film called Tracker that's set in the New Zealand wilderness around the turn of the 20th century. Not the same, but similar ideas. Tracker stars Ray Winstone and Temuera Morrison (who played Jango Fett in the Star Wars pequels). Winstone is chasing Morrison in a "cat and mouse pursuit through the varied landscape of New Zealand." These aren't action photos, only character shots, to give you an idea of what the two look like.

An ex-Boer war guerrilla (Winstone) in New Zealand is sent out to bring back a Maori (Morrison) accused of killing a British soldier. Gradually they grow to know and respect one another but a posse, led by the British Commanding officer, is close behind and his sole intention is to see the Maori hang. Tracker is directed by British filmmaker Ian Sharp; the screenplay was written by Nicolas van Pallandt. This is the first time I've heard of this film, but it's now on my radar, and I'll definitely be seeking it out at an upcoming film festival, most likely. I like both Winstone and Morrison enough to be interested in seeing how this story plays out.

Sounds a bit like Seraphim Falls, and that rocked, so bring it!

Both actors rule, could be a little like the Proposition, if it's anywhere close to that it'd be great to watch. Mores!

Tracker huh? sounds a bit similar to the 2002 Australian film 'The Tracker' and I don't mean the title.
