Donald and Kiefer Sutherland Star in ‘Forsaken,’ A Western Film [Watch]
For the first time ever, Hollywood legends Donald Sutherland and Kiefer Sutherland have teamed up for a new movie to star in together titled "Forsaken."
The film hails from Kiefer's "24" creator Jon Cassar and will also star former '80s icon Demi Moore.
According to Deadline, the film has been acquired by Momentum Pictures for U.S. distribution and premiered at the Toronto Film Festival this year.
The movie is about a father-son combo, which Donald and Kiefer are in real life, who have a fractured relationship following the toils of war and the exploits of the son after the war.
Donald plays a reverend in a small Wyoming town in 1872 that he has resided in for quite some time, since his son left for the war.
Kiefer plays the son who has given up his lifestyle as a gunfighter and quit wearing the belt. He returns to his hometown in hopes of repairing the fractured relationship he has with his father. But just like any good western, the story will get quite a bit more violent.
Although the son has hung up his gun belt, he returns home at a time when they need him to have it on. The town is threatened by the railroad expansions that were coming through at the time and the railroad company is all but nice about their intentions.
They hire thugs to come through and rattle the townsfolk into selling their land to the railroad company. They terrorize everyone in the town and the only real hope they have is for the young son to pick his guns back up and defend them
But his father is against his son going back to his violent ways, even if it is for the greater good.
There has been no word yet when the film will be released.
