Watch: Kiefer & Donald Sutherland in Trailer for Western 'Forsaken'
"Are them stories true about the men you killed?" Momentum Pictures has debuted a trailer for the western Forsaken, about an embittered gunslinger who attempts to make amends with his estranged father whilst their community is besieged by ruthless land-grabbers. The film stars father and son duo Kiefer Sutherland and Donald Sutherland, along with Demi Moore, Michael Wincott, Brian Cox, Landon Liboiron and Siobhan Williams. This has been a very strong season for westerns, including Bone Tomahawk and The Hateful Eight, as well as the underrated Slow West. There's also Jane Got a Gun coming up, but this also looks like a solid indie western worth checking out. Plus it's cool to see the two Sutherlands in a movie.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Jon Cassar's Forsaken, direct from YouTube:
In 1872, John Henry Clayton (Kiefer Sutherland) retires as a gunfighter and returns to his hometown of Fowler, Wyoming in hope of repairing his relationship with his estranged father, Reverend Clayton (Donald Sutherland). However, he soon learns that the town is in turmoil, as the railroad will be coming through the area and a criminal gang is terrorizing ranchers who refuse to sell their land. John Henry is the only one who can stop them, but his father does not want his son to return to a life of violence. Forsaken is directed by TV director Jon Cassar (episodes of "24: Live Another Day", "Fringe", "Daybreak", "Terra Nova", "The Kennedys"), from a screenplay by Brad Mirman. This first premiered at TIFF 2015 last year. Momentum Pictures will release Forsaken in select US theaters starting February 19th this winter.
