Forsaken (2016) -- D: Jon Cassar, S: Kiefer & Donald Sutherland, Demi Moore

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2271563/

Synopsis:

Quote:

John Henry (Kiefer Sutherland) returns to his hometown in hopes of repairing his relationship with his estranged father (Donald Sutherland), but a local gang is terrorizing the town. John Henry is the only one who can stop them, however he has abandoned both his gun and reputation as a fearless quick-draw killer.

Written by Brad Mirman (The Confession)

Directed by Jon Cassar (24)


This is being filmed in Calgary right now. They are hoping for a theatrical release in 2014.

BTW, this is a Western.

Here's a set photo:

Re: Forsaken (2014) -- D: Jon Cassar, S: Kiefer & Donald Sutherland, Demi Moore

I'm all for a good western but as I was reading the plot synopsis I was imagining more of a contemporary story, something along the lines of Straw Dogs, you know, minus the rape...

Cool to see Kiefer and Donald working together though.

Looks like this is the 1st Western Kiefer's done since Young Guns II

Brad Mirman doesn't have a big resume as a writer. He wrote and directed the internet series The Confession that starred Kiefer.

His most notable feature credits are Highlander: The Final Dimension and Body of Evidence.

On paper, (without the western setting) it could be a continuation of 24. replace John Henry with Jack Bauer

Some more stills. No release date yet. I'm presuming this will get a limited release.

It's probably going to get a really limited theatrical run. dex14, can you change the year on this thread to 2015?

Re: Forsaken (2015) -- D: Jon Cassar, S: Kiefer & Donald Sutherland, Demi Moore

Keifer and Donald are awesome together in this one - some really nice 'acting' scenes - the front half does drag a bit (Despite the brisk 90 min running time) but the back end is great, the final shootout is a ton of fun, Michael Wincott steals a few scenes and they throw some humour in there to make it quite satisfying.

Re: Forsaken (2015) -- D: Jon Cassar, S: Kiefer & Donald Sutherland, Demi Moore

If you won't be able to see it in theaters or On demand, the Blu-Ray is available for pre-order. I'll try to watch this on demand on the 19th as the theatrical release is probably very limited. If I like it enough, I might get the BD. Love Kiefer, I'll support whatever he does.




Coming March 29th

I've noticed that Kiefer/Donald have been promoting the shit out of the film.

Re: Forsaken (2016) -- D: Jon Cassar, S: Kiefer & Donald Sutherland, Demi Moore

Rented and watched this yesterday.

Not bad. It was super short at about 89 minutes.

Very simple story about revenge and reconciliation. Kiefer and Donald were really good in their scenes together. A little slow to start out, but the action picks up with 30 minutes left. Lots of killing by Kiefer to finish off the movie.

If you're a fan of his, it's worth the $7 for the 89 minutes.
