While Quentin Tarantino dawdles over Hateful Eight, another director with a penchant for violent imagery is taking a stab at the bloody western genre. Ti West is making a revenge thriller set in the 19th Century called A Vally of Violence, so you know, the subject matter is kinda already self-explanatory.
Deadline reports Ethan Hawke, John Travolta and American Horror Story star Taissa Farmiga have been cast in the film.
Hawke will play a drifter named Paul, who has nothing left to lose as he embarks upon a quest for vengeance against the gang of thugs who killed his best friend. There’s no word on who Travolta will play (probably a bad guy?), but Farmiga will play a young woman who runs the town’s hotel and helps Paul on his mission. West also wrote the script himself.
