James Mangold (Knight and Day) is attached to direct The Gunslinger, a revenge thriller described as a contemporary Western.  According to Heat Vision, the spec script from John Hlavin (The Shield) centers on “an ex-Texas Ranger who sets out to punish the men who killed his brother.”  Andrew Lazar (Jonah Hex) will produce along with Cathy Konrad, Mangold’s wife and producing partner.  New Regency is hoping to start shooting in the spring.

I’m excited to see who they cast for this one — a manly lead role if there ever were one.  Mangold’s 3:10 to Yuma stars Russell Crowe and Christian Bale seem like good candidates.  Shia LaBeouf would be great, obviously, but I say that about every movie.
