Dead For A Dollar – Christoph Waltz and Willem Dafoe have joined the new Walter Hill Western

Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained) and Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man) are joining forces to star in Dead For A Dollar.

Walter Hill (The Warriors) is writing and directing the film, which is set in New Mexico Territory in 1897, according to Deadline.

The story will follow Max Borlund (Waltz), a famed bounty hunter, hired to find and return Rachel Price, the politically progressive wife of Nathan Price, a successful Santa Fe businessman. Max is told she has been kidnapped by an African American army deserter, Elijah Jones, and is being held for ransom in Mexico. When Max goes south of the border he soon runs across his sworn enemy, expatriate American Joe Cribbens (Dafoe), a professional gambler, sometime outlaw, who Max had tracked down and sent to prison years before. When Borlund finds Rachel Price and Elijah hiding deep in the wilds of the Mexican desert, he discovers that Rachel has willingly fled from an abusive husband, and the runaway soldier is, in fact, her romantic partner.

Waltz and Dafoe are both amazing actors so to see them going up against each other on the big screen promises something epic.

The project is being produced by Jeremy Wall (Gun-Shy), Kirk D’Amico (The Last Word) and Caroyn Mc Masters. Matt Harris also wrote on the script.

Myriad Pictures President and CEO Kirk D’Amico said “We are extremely pleased to be working with the legendary Walter Hill who has created a Western with contemporary themes and modern feeling characters. Award-winning actors Christoph Waltz and Willem Dafoe will embody the extraordinary leading roles which are destined for cinematic history.”
