Legend of Hells Gate
Tanner Beard always been a fan of western films.
The Legend of Hell’s Gate marked his directorial debut back in 2011. Eventually, he directed another western with 6 Bullets to Hell and now currently attached with In the Name of the Gun.
Based on true events and certain legends, Beard took liberties of a mythical tale of Hell’s Gate in Texas with a couple of tales about Doc Holliday and John St. Helen, who claimed to be President Abraham Lincoln’s assassin John Wilkes Boothe.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Based on real events, when a curious errand boy catches wind of one of America’s infamous crimes, he falls in with two desperate men on the wrong side of the law. Crossing paths with some of the West’s most notorious figures, these three outlaws fight for their lives in the pursuit of fame and riches. Few are to be trusted, as their interwoven stories prove that everyone has a hidden agenda, and by no means is anyone innocent.
The western stars Eric Balfour (Six Feet Under, 24), Lou Taylor Pucci (Evil Dead, American Horror Story), Henry Tomas (E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, Legends of the Fall), Jenna Dewan (Step Up, World of Dance), Jamie Thomas King (Mad Men, The Tudors), Glenn Morshower (The Resident, Transformers: Dark of the Moon), and Kevin Alejandro (Netflix’s Lucifer, A&E’s The Returned.) Beard wrote, directed and also starred in the movie.
