Anthony-Michael-Hall-Dead-in-Tombstone-interview-slice

When director Roel Reine’s shoot-em-up western Dead in Tombstone was filming in Romania last year, I got to visit the set along with a few other online reporters.  The film stars Danny Trejo as the leader of a gang of outlaws who frees his half-brother (Anthony Michael Hall) from prison in order to loot a mining town.  The plan backfires when Hall double crosses Trejo and kills him.  Trejo makes a deal with the devil (Mickey Rourke) and comes back from the dead to seek revenge.  As Patrick said in his Blu-ray review, “Dead in Tombstone has some really impressive stunts and set-pieces – from horse-drawn carriage flips to chandelier swings (classic!) and massive explosions – and they’re all staged and shot better than most Hollywood action fare.  One particular explosion near the end looks impossibly large, though no CGI was used.  Action fans will definitely want to check out this unique supernatural revenge thriller.”

During my on set video interview with Anthony Michael Hall, he talked about how he got involved in the project and his respect for Trejo and Rourke, what it’s like to play a badass western villain, his experiences on Community, The Dead Zone, and working with Christopher Nolan on The Dark Knight, what people always want to talk to him about, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to watch.
