Ron Perlman, Zahn McClarnon and Frank Grillo co-star in the western opening Dec. 13.
Bass Reeves — the legendary slave-turned lawman whose real-life exploits reportedly inspired the fictional adventures of The Lone Ranger — is the center of attention in Hell on the Border, a gritty new western set to premiere Friday, Dec. 13, in theaters and On Demand. David Gyasi of Amazon Prime’s Carnival Row stars as Reeves, backed by a supporting cast that includes Ron Perlman (Hellboy, TV’s The Magnificent Seven), Zahn McClarnon (Longmire, The Son) and Frank Grillo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier).
Directed by Wes Miller, Hell on the Border begins with Reeves arriving in Arkansas to land a job as a lawman. To prove himself, he must hunt down a deadly outlaw (Grillo) with the help of a grizzled gunslinger (Perlman). As he chases the criminal deeper into the Cherokee Nation, Reeves dodges bullets and endures discrimination in hopes of earing his star — and ends up cementing his place as a Wild West legend.
Here’s an advance look at Hell on the Border.
