James Mangold Will Direct New Regency’s THE GUNSLINGER
James Mangold, director of the 3:10 to Yuma remake, will helm THE GUNSLINGER, a revenge thriller from New Regency. Mangold will again step in to the Wild West n Gunslinger, but this will be a contemporary spin on the genre. The story centers around an ex-Texas Ranger who sets out to kill the men that killed his brother.
Gunslinger will be produced by Andrew Lazar, as well as Mangold’s wife and producing partner Cathy Konrad.
Gunslinger began at Warner Bros. from John Hlavin in 2009, but New Regency recently picked it up in a turn around from the studio.
New Regency will get Gunslinger into production quickly – they’re already looking at a spring start, with Navid McIlhargey overseeing for the company.
