Not a remake of the Brando film, apparently: http://www.variety.com/article/VR1117969818.html?categoryid=10&cs=1
Who says the Western is dead?

I can't wait for this. Some great talent involved in this project. I seen Viggo Mortensen on Letterman last night and he was sporting a great western mustache preparing for his role in this. Ed Harris as you all know is directing as well as starring. Renée Zellweger also is starring.

With this, Yuma, the Jesse James film, and There Will Be Blood, it seems the Western is really back. The operative word being "seems."

UPDATED NEWS:

http://hollywood-elsewhere.com/2008/06/appaloosa_acomi.php

It hasn't been reported anywhere yet, but I'm told Warner Bros. will be releasing Ed Harris's Appaloosa, a New Line reject starring Viggo Mortensen, Renee Zellweger, Harris, Jeremy Irons and Lance Henriksen, on Wednesday, 9.17.08 in New York, L.A. and Toronto, followed by a 500-screen break on Friday, 9.19.

Another guy has written in and said "It's still a New Line movie, New Line execs are still doing the development/cutting, and New Line came up with the release plan. It's a Warner Brothers movie like Sex and the City is a Warner Brothers movie -- in that WB passed on it and New Line made it."

The western is about two gunmen, a marshall named Virgil Cole (Harris) and his deputy and friend Everett Hitch (Mortensen) trying to free a town from its thrall to a thuggish rancher (Irons...I think). Zellweger plays a young widow who presumably falls for Harris or Mortenson or whatever. Appaloosa is Harris' second film as a director, the first having been Pollock.

Check out the Appaloosa IMDB boards and you'll see it's gotten some good reviews from test screenings. Looks to me like an almost sure bet for the '08 Toronto Film Festival. Mortensen has been a steady attender of that gathering in recent years. Now we have an outdoorsy adventure-ish Viggo Mortensen movie (a period western) set for release just over two months before the 11.26 opening of The Road, an adaptation of the Cormac McCarthy novel in which he also stars.

Looks nice! It sure would be nice to see more (good) westerns in the future.

I like 'em both. Ed > Viggo though, if you want to get personal. Jeez. ;D

You got that right. Ed Harris and Viggo Mortensen are d*mn good actors. I love the rest of the cast as well.

Wowza! Great trailer. And that cast! Ed & Viggo, Jeremy Irons, AND Lance Henriksen? I'm definitely giving this one the benefit of the doubt. Thanks for those links, TB. O0
