Anthony Michael Hall, Trejo and Rourke Getting 'Dead in Tombstone'

March 15, 2012

Anthony Michael Hall

Quick! Name the most gritty, badass actors you can think of. Chances are pretty good Danny Trejo and Mickey Rourke probably came to mind, but if you hadn't have read that headline beforehand, I'd be willing to guess that nobody would have included Anthony Michael Hall in the company of those other guys. But apparently a casting director did, and has put the John Hughes wunderkind opposite Trejo and Rouke in a new action adventure called Dead in Tombstone. Roel Reine (Death Race: Inferno, Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption) will direct from a screenplay written by Shane Kuhn and Brendan Cowles.

Deadline has details about the story, which describes Trejo's character as a leader of the Blackwater Gang of outlaws. After he frees his half-brother (Hall) from prison, Trejo is double-crossed during the looting of a mining town. The now-dead Trejo makes a deal with the Devil (Rourke, of course), and comes back a year later looking for his revenge. This is one of the craziest plot synopses I've read in a while, and I'd expect nothing less from this group of people getting together to make a movie. Sounds like great casting and a fun revenge movie, but I'm not sure if Reine can do better than the direct-to-DVD schlock for which he's known.
