Vincent D’Onofrio is reuniting with his Magnificent Seven castmates Chris Pratt and Ethan Hawke for a new Western, but this time he’s also stepping behind the camera. Lionsgate has debuted the trailer for D’Onofrio’s The Kid, which finds the Daredevil star in the director’s chair for a new spin on the legend of Billy the Kid.
Dane DeHaan stars as Billy with Hawke stepping into the role of Pat Garrett, the renowned lawman who became a legend by killing Billy the Kid. The Kid follows a young boy named Rio (Jake Schur), who finds himself on a mission to save his sister (Leila George) from his villainous uncle (Pratt) and winds up mixed up in Pat Garrett’s hunt for infamous outlaw. Along the way, he gets to know the legendary figures and ultimately has to decide what kind of man he wants to become as Garrett’s hunt closes in on his target. The Kid arrives in theaters on March 8, 2019. Get a peek at the action in the trailer below.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Kid:
“In this thrilling Western, a young boy, Rio (Jake Schur), is forced to go on the run across the American Southwest in a desperate attempt to save his sister (Leila George) from his villainous uncle (Chris Pratt). Along the way, he encounters Sheriff Pat Garrett (Ethan Hawke), on the hunt for the infamous outlaw Billy the Kid (Dane DeHaan). Rio finds himself increasingly entwined in the lives of these two legendary figures as the cat and mouse game of Billy the Kid’s final year of life plays out. Ultimately Rio is forced to choose which type of man he is going to become, the outlaw or the man of valor, and will use this self-realization in a final act to save his family.”
