I am excited to share that Vernon Walker has agreed to play “The Gambler” in the last of our 12 Westerns, Heart of the Gun.
Vernon Walker has appeared in several Western films including our third of the 12, She was the Deputy’s Wife. Click Here to see his IMDb page. The Gambler character meets our protagonist Travers in a saloon where they have a violent confrontation.
Production is slated for December 2020 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.
