SLASH Executive Producing Western Thriller 'Cut Throats Nine'

Rue Morgue Cinema and Raven Banner Entertainment have welcomed guitar legend and film producer Slash (GUNS N' ROSES, "Nothing Left To Fear") as executive producer for the western thriller "Cut Throats Nine". Attached to the project are stars Mads Mikkelsen ("The Hunt", "Hannibal"), Harvey Keitel ("Reservoir Dogs"), Julian Richings ("Man Of Steel", "X-Men: The Last Stand") Kris Holden-Ried ("Lost Girl", "The Tudors"), writer/director Rodrigo Gudiño ("The Last Will And Testament Of Rosalind Leigh") and producers Marco Pecota and Jake Koseleci. Production is slated to commence in late 2014.

"I'm really excited about seeing 'Cut Throats Nine' come to life," commented Slash. "It's a brilliant script with great characters. The story is gritty, tough, shocking and ballsy with great twists and turns throughout."

"We had an amazing experience working with Slash on his last film and we're thrilled to be continuing our working relationship with him on 'Cut Throats Nine'," added Raven Banner's Managing Partner, Michael Paszt.

"Cut Throats Nine" is a retooling of the classic 1972 Spanish film which updates and expands upon the themes of the original for a modern audience, while retaining the edge that made the original a cult classic. Both a western and a thriller, "Cut Throats Nine" approaches the genre with the philosophy that the biggest monster of them all is a human being pushed to its limits.

Through its expertise in strategic project management, Raven Banner has assisted in all stages of production; from acquisitions, representation, negotiations, consultation, distribution and sales.

Rue Morgue Cinema has been globally recognized for the works of Rue Morgue president Rodrigo Gudiño, writer/director of the company's flagship feature "The Last Will And Testament Of Rosalind Leigh" starring Aaron Poole ("The Samaritan", "Copper"), and Academy-Award winner Vanessa Redgrave ("Mission: Impossible", "Coriolanus").
