A U.S. Marshal is embarking on an emotionally difficult journey. His relentless search for his brother’s killer is leading him to an inevitable clash that will become a life or death struggle for a much greater cause. In honor of that fight being shared with the American public, through the release of the new Western film, ‘Justice,’ Shockya is launching a new exclusive clip from the drama.
Chasing Butterflies Pictures is distributing ‘Justice’ in theaters, while Universal Pictures Home Entertainment is debuting the movie on Digital and On Demand, today. The Western stars Stephen Lang, Robert Carradine, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Jackson Rathbone, Nathan Parsons and Quinton Aaron. The film was directed by Richard Gabai, and is based on a story by Shawn Justice.
The following synopsis has been released for ‘Justice’:
It’s 1870, and the Civil War has been over for three years. An old, abandoned mine is now being transformed into a military stronghold by the corrupt Mayor Pierce (Lang) and his band of outlaws, who are led by the bloodthirsty thug, Reb (John Lewis), and hell-bent on reigniting the war. When a U.S. Marshal, James McCord (Parsons), comes to town, he learns from the local teacher, Melissa (Sigler), that his brother, Thomas, the town priest (Rathbone), has been murdered. James’ subsequent search for the killer leads to an inevitable clash that becomes a life or death struggle for a much greater cause.
Speaking of starring in ‘Justice,’ Parsons noted that “Growing up in Texas, the mythos surrounding cowboys and the old west permeated my childhood, so working on Justice truly was a dream come true.”
Gabai also spoke about his involvement in making the drama, saying that “As a fan of Classic Westerns from Howard Hawks and John Ford, I wanted to incorporate the elements we love about those films, but with a modern edge. Though our story is set in 1870, the themes are as relevant today as they were back then. Our brilliant and dedicated cast, crew and stunt team were a joy to work with, the magnificent locations a dream to shoot.”
Lang also chimed in on starring in the movie, saying “I love a good Western, always have. The creative team who have brought ‘Justice’ to the screen..have done true justice to the genre. I am honored to be a part of this film, and I hope and trust it will find favor among all who love a good ‘oater’ as much as I do.”
