The Road to McCormick

in-the-works_road-to-mccormick_viggo-mortensen_charlize-theronEven though The Road isn’t a Western in the traditional sense, many feel that the post-apocalyptic genre and the Western are two sides of the same coin; that the world that followed in the wake of the Civil War was very much the way the world might be following a major catastrophe or war.

Cormac McCarthy, author of The Road, is responsible for No Country For Old Men, All The Pretty Horses and Blood Meridian, all Westerns in one sense or another. The Road will be directed by John Hillcoat, who made one of the best Westerns in decades, The Proposition. The production began in February, and as of this writing, Viggo Mortensen and Charlize Theron are cast in the leads.
