Sean Bean has been doing a number of interviews recently as he promotes the film Silent Hill: Revelation 3D. While doing these interviews, Sean admitted that, while he has done a number of different movie genres, he would love to be in a cowboy movie and it appears that he could be set to get his wish.
Bean told DenOfGeek, “I’d like to do a cowboy film I suppose, I’ve come close to it on occasion, but not really to a classic cowboy film. But there’s a film I’m looking at which might be going ahead next year, in Vancouver, called Scorched Earth and it's set in the future. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen that Doomsday Preppers where they prepare for the end of the world.”
He added, “In [the script] it’s actually happened and so everyone goes around on a horse, like you used to, and they’re cowboys, and my character's a bounty hunter. That’s something that I’d like to do. It’s a great story, as is the script I’ve read, so they’re hoping to get that together by early next year – so maybe I’ll play a cowboy”
Nothing much is known about Scorched Earth apart from what Sean Bean has already explained and the fact that Brad Turner is currently lined up to direct it. With that said, it could be some time before Scorched Earth gets into production, so could be even longer until we get to see it, if we ever do.
