We first reported on the project back in March, when John Travolta and Ethan Hawke signed on to star. The story centers on Ethan Hawke's character, a drifter who arrives in town seeking to avenge the death of his best friend. Karen Gillan and Taissa Farmiga will play sisters who run a hotel in the town. It isn't immediately clear who John Travolta is playing at this time.
Ti West is directing from his own original screenplay, with Jason Blum producing through his Blumhouse Productions company. Production is scheduled to begin in late June.
Karen Gillan most recently starred in the Blumhouse thriller Oculus, and she will next be seen as Nebula in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. The actress also stars in the upcoming ABC series Selfie. Taissa Farmiga most recently starred in the FX anthology series American Horror Story: Coven, and she will next be seen in The Final Girls.
In a Valley of Violence is in development and stars John Travolta, Ethan Hawke, Karen Gillan, Taissa Farmiga. The film is directed by Ti West.
