Saban Films has picked up the North American rights to a new western action film titled Hostile Territory, which was previously titled The Orphan Train.
The movie comes from writer and director Brian Presley, the story is set in post-civil war America, and it follows “a Union soldier who is presumed dead as a POW. When his children are mistakenly sent away on an orphan train to be placed in a new home, unlikely individuals unite for the greater good and children are forced to grow up quickly in this wild-west fight for equality.”
One of my favorite film genres is the western and this one sounds like it’ll be a good one. The movie stars Matt McCoy (The Hand that Rocks the Cradle), Brea Bee (Silver Linings Playbook), Brad Leland (Deepwater Horizon), Lew Temple (The Devil’s Rejects), Craig Tate (King Richard) and Brian Presley.
Saban Films’ Bill Bromiley said in a statement, “We were incredibly moved by Brian’s telling of this story, which perfectly captures the grit and resiliency of the American settlers and provides an example of how people can come together for the common good. The fact that this orphan train actually existed and was in practice during the post-Civil War era is astounding.”
The movie will be released at some point in 2022.
