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 starsDanny 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 Danny Trejo, he talked about how he got involved in the project, what it’s like to shoot in Romania, his admiration for Anthony Michael Hall, his preparation process, the action sequences, his experience on Sons of Anarchy, plans for Machete Kills and Machete Kills Again, Death Race 3, and so much more.
