Garret Dillahunt new western
According to his IMDB listings, Dillahunt could be filming for a Viggo Mortensen-directed western; The Dead Don’t Hurt. His recent photo was quite mysterious, with a caption reading “#saddleup.”
According to Variety, The Dead Don’t Hurt began filming in Canada on October 12. This is a western love story that Mortensen wrote, directs, and stars along with Vicky Krieps in the lead roles. Set in the 1860s, Krieps plays fiercely independent French Canadian Vivienne Le Coudy, who falls for Danish immigrant Holger Olsen, played by Mortensen.
They met in San Francisco and moved to his home near Elk Flats, but the Civil War separates them, requiring Vivienne to fend for herself. She comes against a powerful rancher, Alfred Jeffries (Dillahunt), and his violent son Weston (Solly McLeod), who are aligned with the corrupt Mayor Rudolph Schiller (Danny Huston).
