LEGEND shoots from the hip with THE WILDER WEST SEASON
LEGEND shoots from the hip this October as the wilder side of the western is laid bare in a six-shooter season of violent, controversial and revenge-fuelled showdowns.
So be prepared for blood-drenched shoot-outs, outlaw adventures and bandits on the rampage as LEGEND goes way out West with a selection of contemporary Westerns, highlighted by the channel premiere of Ti West’s IN A VALLEY OF VIOLENCE, starring Ethan Hawke and John Travolta. There is also a channel premiere for Jon Casser’s FORSAKEN, starring Donald and Keifer Sutherland.
Ralph Nelson’s brutal Western SOLDIER BLUE still remains one of the most poignant yet horrific dramatisations of America’s dark history and this repeat shoeing gets a primetime slot, as does HANNIE CAULDER, starring Ernest Borgnine and Raquel Welch, intense rural drama WAR ON THE RANGE, starring James Badge Dale and William Forsythe and civil war thriller ANY BULLET WILL DO, starring Kevin Makely and Todd A. Robinson.
