We’re happy to debut a batch of exclusive new images from the upcoming action-comedy The Baytown Outlaws today. Written and directed by Barry Battles, the film follows three ruthless brothers who fall into helping a damsel in distress (Eva Longoria) by rescuing her godson (Thomas Brodie Sangster) from her nefarious ex-husband, Rob (Billy Bob Thornton). It looks like a pretty wild pic, and these images highlight the cast of characters that also includes Quentin Tarantino staple Zoe Bell (Death Proof). Here’s the trailer.
Hit the jump to check out the new images. The film also stars Clayne Crawford, Michael Rapaport, Daniel Cudmore, Travis Fimmel, Serinda Swan, Andre Braugher and Paul Wesley. The Baytown Outlaws is currently available VOD and hits theaters on January 11th.
The first trailer has jumped online for Billy Bob Thornton-starrer, The Baytown Disco. A self-professed “Southern-fried whip-ass extravaganza,” The Baytown Disco features a trio of ruthless outlaw brothers who fall into helping a damsel in distress (Eva Longoria). She hires them to help return her godson (Thomas Brodie Sangster), who has been kidnapped by her nefarious ex-husband, Rob (Thornton). While I wasn’t exactly sold on the synopsis and images alone, the new trailer hits all the right banjo strings (and the femme fatales certainly do not hurt). Directed by Barry Battles, The Baytown Disco also stars Clayne Crawford, Michael Rapaport, Daniel Cudmore, Travis Fimmel, Andre Braugher and Paul Wesley. Hit the jump for the trailer and official synopsis, and to watch the original short that inspired the feature-length film.
Daniel Cudmore (Twilight: New Moon), Travis Fimmel (TV’s The Beast), and Andre Braugher (TV’s Men of a Certain Age) have joined Billy Bob Thornton and Eva Longoria in the Southern comedy The Baytown Disco. Directed by Barry Battles, the film follows three brothers who, as usual, get more than they bargained for when they agree to help a woman get her son back from his abusive father. Serinda Swan, Clayne Crawford, Thomas Sangster and Meagan Good also star.
THR reports that Cudmore, Fimmel and Crawford will star as the trio of brothers. The script, by Battles and Griffin Hood, made the 2009 Black List. The Baytown Disco is set to start filming on May 2nd in Louisiana.
On A&E’s new original drama series Breakout Kings, actress Serinda Swan plays Erica Reed, a sexy expert tracker who learned her trade from her bounty hunter father, prior to ending up in prison. Now, she is part of a special task force for the U.S. Marshals, run by Charlie DuChamp (Laz Alonso) and Ray Zancanelli (Domenick Lombardozzi), that uses former fugitives to catch current ones, in exchange for shortening their own sentences, as long as they follow the rules and don’t try to escape.
During a recent exclusive interview with Collider, Serinda Swan talked about being the only female out in the field with all of her male co-stars, getting in on the action and kicking some butt, and how excited she is for people to get to see so many different sides of herself, as an actress. She also talked about the experience of having been involved with such big sci-fi projects as Tron: Legacy and the television series Smallville. Check out what she had to say after the jump:
