We've done ourfairshareofreportingonJames Mangold's3:10 to Yumaremake, and after checking out this brand-new trailer, I'm beginning to think the project was worth all the coverage. Maybe I'm just a sucker for an old-fashioned western, but this flick just jumped to the top of my Wanna-See list! Lionsgate is holding the film for an October 5 release, but damn if Mangold didn't get this flick shot in a hurry!

Based on the 1957 Delmer Daves film (which starred Glenn Ford and Van Heflin), Mangold's adaptation stars Russell Crowe as a nefarious villain and Christian Bale as the noble man who stands for justice. Like I said, good old-fashioned western stuff. (Actually both films are based on an Elmore Leonard story, so I'll leave it up to you if this is a true "remake" or not.) Also along for the ride are Alan Tudyk, Ben Foster, Peter Fonda and Gretchen Mol. Sounds good to me.

And say what you will about James Mangold, but there's little denying the guy likes to jump from genre to genre. In the last dozen years he's directed a romantic drama, a police thriller, a teen-centric weeper, a screwball comedy, a horror mystery thriller, and a very fine musical bio-pic. And now a western! Next up for Mangold has to be sci-fi, right? Maybe a superhero movie...
