Nordisk Film has announced the cast for their upcoming Western The Salvation. The film pays tribute to classic westerns with inspiration from Nordic sagas and takes place in the 1870s America and has begun shooting in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The studio announced that the already-known Mads Mikkelson (NBC's Hannibal) is being joined by Eva Green, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Eric Cantona, Mikael Persbrandt, Douglas Henshall, Michael Raymond-James and Jonathan Pryce.
When settler John kills his family's murderer, he unleashes the fury of notorious gang leader Delarue. Betrayed by his corrupt and cowardly community, the peaceful pioneer must turn vengeful hunter, slay the outlaws, and cleanse the town's black heart. The Salvation is an epic tale of revenge, lost love and greed.
