After "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" and "3:10 to Yuma", another Western movie, "Appaloosa", will be brought to the big screen. Yet, before it is screened in limited theaters on October 3, the trailer to the drama starring Ed Harris, Viggo Mortensen and Renee Zellweger has been released.
Based on Robert B. Parker's 2005 Western novel of the same name, "Appaloosa" follows the story of two friends hired to protect a western town from a renegade rancher and his gang. However, their plans are disrupted when an attractive widow comes to the town. Despite the fact that the story also involved the widow, the trailer highlights on the gun fighting and the pair of friends as the men of law.
Coming from the four-time Academy Award-nominated actor, Harris, "Appaloosa" is set to be distributed by New Line Cinema. The movie was filmed in New Mexico in late 2007. It is Harris' second project as a director.
