Having spent several years focused on TV work with long-running series Supernatural, Jensen Ackles is now ready to ride on the big screen again. He’s joined the ensemble cast of Joel Souza’s Western Rust, which already has Alec Baldwin, Travis Fimmel and Frances Fisher aboard.
Souza also wrote the script based on a story he worked on with Baldwin. The plot follows infamous Western outlaw Harland Rust (Baldwin), who has had a bounty on his head for as long as he can remember. When his estranged 13-year-old grandson Lucas (Brady Noon) is convicted of an accidental murder and sentenced to hang, Rust travels to Kansas to break him out of prison.
Together, the two fugitives must outrun the legendary US Marshal Wood Helm (Ackles) and bounty hunter Fenton “Preacher” Lang (Fimmel) who are hot on their tail. Deeply buried secrets rise from the ashes and an unexpected familial bond begins to form as the mismatched duo tries to survive the merciless American Frontier.
Before the movie ambles in to the cinematic saloon though, we’ll see Ackles as Soldier Boy on the third season of anarchic comic book series The Boys, though Amazon has yet to reveal when the new episodes will kick off.
