Reach for the Sky is currently shooting near Glen Rose, Texas. Producer Glenn Helm has brought aboard Alan Chan to direct the HD picture, so one can expect something spectacular. Chan has been involved with the visual/technical aspects of blockbuster movies such as Titanic, Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and Beowulf.
One element that makes the venture more interesting is that the protagonist in the story is a woman, Eryn Cates, who is described in the casting notice as beautiful and athletic. She must be able to portray “both the proper young woman and the masculine roll of the Masked Bandit.” She also has to be able to ride, shoot, rope and fight kung-fu, which her character learns from a Chinese cook.
This sounds like a Western worth seeing.
