Studio City Pictures have cast Cole Hauser (“A Good Day to Die Hard”), Ron Perlman (“Sons of Anarchy”) and Jennifer Beals (“The L Word”) in the newest film adaptation of Owen Wister’s classic novel “The Virginian”.
Best remembered as a TV series, the tale tells of a ranch foreman named South who makes it his responsibility to find the rustlers who have been decimating his employers operation.
Ryan Little directs this latest take, working off a script by Bob Thielke.
Here’s the official synopsis of the new incarnation of “The Virginian”.
SOUTH is the foreman of Sunk Creek Ranch and a feared enforcer for the cattle baron JUDGE HENRY, who took him in after his parents were killed by rustlers. As part of his duties he is to look after a writer from the big city, OWEN, who has come out West to research a novel. Owen is appalled at the savagery of the land, in particular the way cattle rustlers are treated. As South tells him, rustling cattle in Wyoming is worse than shooting a man in the back. There’s a rash of rustling that is decimating Judge Henry’s operation and South is trying to get to the bottom of it and find the rustlers. Along the way he romances the new schoolteacher in town, MOLLY, who takes a liking to South until she learns what his job entails. She urges him to avoid bloodshed. As South seeks clues as to who is doing the rustling he finds answers he wishes he hadn’t.
Published in 1902, the original novel sold something like 20,000 copies in its first month, 300,000 in its first year and by 1938, the time of the author’s death, had raked up 1.5 m in sales.
