Slash's film production company Slasher Films will produce the remake to the 1972 Western thriller Cut Throats Nine. The reboot, directed by Rodrigo Gudino (The Last Will), will feature Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal), Harvey Keitel (Reservoir Dogs), Julian Richings (Man of Steel) and Kris Holden Ried (The Tudors).
"I'm really excited about seeing Cut Throats Nine come to life," said Slash in a statement.
"It's a brilliant script with great characters. The story is gritty, tough, shocking and ballsy with great twists and turns throughout."
The plot of Cut Throats Nine centers on a band of U.S. cavalrymen who must escort a group of convicts across the Rocky Mountains. After most of the troops are killed, one sergeant and his daughter remain, determined to bring the prisoners to their destination.
