Outlaws beware. Through hard work and sacrifice, the pieces of Jing’s life begin falling into place, but in one moment all of that is ripped away. Enraged with grief, he sets out on a path of revenge that will tear apart the corrupt town he calls home in THE OUTSIDER. This double barrel thrill-ride stars country music legend Trace Adkins (I Can Only Imagine, Hickok), Sean Patrick Flanery (The Boondock Saints, Powder), Jon Foo (“Rush Hour”) and Danny Trejo (Machete, Predators). On June 14, THE OUTSIDER opens theatrically in 11 markets including Los Angeles, Kansas City, Dallas, Denver, Phoenix, Houston, Tampa, Minneapolis, Seattle, Chicago and Toronto; and, day-and-date, it will also be available On Demand and Digital.
The far east and the old west collide in, THE OUTSIDER, a tale of bullets, bare knuckles and bloodshed. In search of a better life, a railroad worker (Foo) unwittingly finds himself on the wrong side of a group of corrupt lawmen. As the Marshal (Adkins) attempts to control his increasingly unethical town, tragedy strikes forcing him to decide between justice and family. But through their inaction they awakened a sleeping giant; and after teaming up with a disgraced former officer (Flanery), the railroad worker sets out to wipeout the immoral group by any means necessary.
THE OUTSIDER, directed by Timothy Woodward Jr. (Hickock, Traded) and written by Sean Ryan, is an unfiltered look at the trials and tragedies that shaped the American frontier. Co-stars include Kaiwi Lyman (“American Horror Story”, Hickok) as the Marshal’s son and Mitchell L. Johnson (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) as a corrupt lawman. Nelli Tsay (Jaded) rounds out the performances with the complex, gritty portrayal of Jing’s wife.
Filmed at the iconic Paramount Ranch, where movies & shows such as Gunfight at the O.K. Corral and “Gunsmoke” were made, production was halted half-way through when the Malibu Woolsey Fires destroyed the historic movie set. “The western genre holds a special place in my heart,” says Woodward, Jr. “Having another opportunity to work at an iconic location like Paramount Ranch was a dream come true. It was a sad day for western fans, and a blow to the film community, when the ranch succumbed to the fires that devastated a big portion of the state last fall. Despite it being one of our key locations for this project, the crew, cast and team really buckled down, got creative and worked through heat, wind and fire to bring this western to life.”
THE OUTSIDER is produced by Woodward, Lauren de Normandie and Johnny Cleveland. Executive Producers include Matthew Helderman, Luke Taylor, Joe Listhaus and Patrick DePeters.
