There is a new big budget wide release western scheduled for release this September. The title: 3:10 to Yuma based on an Elmore Leonard story. It is directed by James Mangold, and stars Russell Crowe, Christian Bale, and Peter Fonda. The Yahoo!Movies database description reads:
A rancher struggles to support his ranch and family during a long drought. Desperately needing money to build a well, he takes an assignment to transport a notorious felon, in the hands of authorities, to Yuma for imprisonment. But, once the two meet, the criminal tries to tempt him with--in exchange for allowing him to escape--an offer of much more money than the rancher ever expected, the result of a hidden loot.
This is the second film based on Elmore Leonard's 3:10 to Yuma. The first was released in 1957. It was directed by Delmer Daves, and starred Glenn Ford and Van Heflin.
