GN'R's Slash Joins Rodrigo Gudiño's CUT THROATS NINE
Ever since I heard about Rodrigo Gudiño's plan to retool the 1972 western, Cut-Throats Nine, a few years ago in a back alley cinema here in Toronto, I have been eagerly awaiting this project. A number of high profile actors are already attached, too, by way of Mads Mikkelsen and Harvey Keitel. Keeping it local, Canadian actor Kris Holden Ried and British-born but still an iconic mainstay in Canadian productions, Julian Richings, have also been announced for the cast.
So why not add a little rock n' roll? Word out today that guitar legend and horror enthusiast Slash will be joining the production! Sadly, as of this moment, he is only joining as an executive producer. But hell if they do not try to get him at least a cameo in the film playing a guitar. It almost seems wasteful not to!

Both a western and a thriller, CUT THROATS NINE approaches the genre with the philosophy that the biggest monster of them all is a human being pushed to its limits.
