Cut Throats Nine - Rodrigo Gudino's long-mooted remake – has attracted another star: Slash, guitar legend and producer. He'll join previously announced cast members Mads Mikkelsen, Harvey Keitel, Julian Richings and Kris Holden Reid.

The film follows a wagonload of convicts as they travel the northern mountains to carry out their death sentences. Following a surprise attack from a gang of bandits, only the sergeant, his beautiful young daughter and seven of the most sadistic, murderous men alive survive the assault.

The film is a Rue Morgue Cinema and Raven Banner Entertainment production. Filming is expected to begin this year on the western/thriller.

Gudino previously helmed The Last Will and Testament of Rosalind Leigh.

“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."

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 classics. It approaches the genre with the philosophy that the biggest monster of them all is a human being pushed to its limits.

    this cast (not including Slash. LOL) is awesome! i’m in.

    Might be one of the very few remakes worth watching. Not because of the cast itself, though I enjoy Mikkelsen and Keitel. Mikkelsen is actually great in Hannibal right now and has the guts to play a bad ass. But more because the original sucks.

    I have seen the movie and was literally shocked that something like this stupid script ever made it into a film. My personal guess is, that movie just became popular because of extreme violence which is hard to find in our modern days. I just hope that they erased all logical errors in the remake and have a more soffisticated storyline without such incredible dumb characters.

    How about a brief plot description for those of us who aren’t familiar with it? You don’t even have a link to a previous story that might have included that
