We are excited to announce that actor/filmmaker Miles Doleac has joined the cast of Heart of the Gun, one of our 12 Westerns, as Jack Travers, the lead male character. Doleac will also produce the film.
I previously worked with Miles Doleac on our Civil War film Son of a Gun. He is well known for his acting and directing work in films such as The Hollow, Demons, and the most recent Hallowed Ground. Doleac has also appeared in episodes of NCIS: New Orleans, Lovecraft Country, and The Watchmen. In Heart of the Gun, he will portray the tormented, intense character Jack Travers and also produce the film with me.
We are aiming for a June or July production in Arizona. Here is a little more information about Heart of the Gun:
Set against the backdrop of the Apache wars in the American Southwest, Heart of the Gun begins with a raging storm as Jack Travers comes upon the scene of a crime in the desolate landscape. Two wagons have been raided and their inhabitants murdered but he discovers one survivor. This is Sarah, a woman with red hair, but not the scarlet beauty Travers hoped she would be… the wife who left him years ago.
Travers deserted his post as a military doctor to find this missing woman. Sarah has turned away from her own past, one of pain and prostitution, for a new life. But her destiny is forever changed when she crosses paths with this troubled hero. Together, they set off on a dark journey, attacked by deranged outlaws, hunted by the cavalry, and tracked by Apache warriors. And as Travers continues his desperate search, he discovers that Sarah may be the woman he has been looking for all along.
So excited for Miles and the Doleac family! Can’t wait to see the movie!
