Yellowstone star Hauser saddles up for film western Dead Man’s Hand

Film recently completed production in Sante Fe, New Mexico


Yellowstone standout Cole Hauser has saddled up for another western, this time a new film venture.

Dead Man’s Hand has also nabbed talented young actors Stephen Dorff (HBO’s ”True Detective”) and Jack Kilmer (The Nice Guys, Val), Milestone Studios announced today.

The feature was written, directed, and produced by Brian Skiba (The 2nd, Pursuit), and is based on the story of popular graphic novel, No Rest of the Wicked – Dead Man’s Hand, written by Kevin Minor and Matthew Minor. The production, which was just wrapped, was filmed in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Grindstone Entertainment Group has acquired the North American rights to the project, which Sikba described as “a western rooted in a tragic love story followed by retaliation and nonstop action.”

In Dead Man’s Hand, a retired gunslinger, Reno (Kilmer) and a new marshal (Hauser) join forces as they take on a cruel cattle baron (Dorff) in this gripping story of vengeance and wrath. Reno, a newly married gunfighter, hangs up his six-shooters when he says “I do” to his bride, Vegas. But when Reno kills a bandit in self-defense, he finds himself pulled back into his old ways. The bandit’s brother, the ruthless, Mayor Clarence Bishop (Dorff), will not let his brother’s death go unpunished. As revenge, Bishop and his private army ambush Reno and Vegas, leaving the gunfighter near death and taking Reno’s wife prisoner. Reno teams up with Marshal Roy McCutcheon to channel his fury as he swears revenge on every single bastard who hurt them.
