Scott Richardson, who worked on The Only Good Indian (see yesterday's post below), hit me up with some additional information on the film, plus some on their upcoming feature Bunker Hill. Check it out:

LAWRENCE, KANSAS – Director Kevin Willmott (CSA: Confederate States of America) has completed principal photography on his new independent feature film THE ONLY GOOD INDIAN, starring Wes Studi (Last of the Mohicans, Avatar). The film was written by Thomas L. Carmody. Actor James McDaniel (NYPD Blue) is the executive producer.

In the film, Wes Studi portrays an early 1900’s era Cherokee bounty hunter hired to return an escapee from an Indian boarding school. Winter Fox Frank plays the teenaged student who is trying to get back to his family and the Kansas Kickapoo reservation in Kansas. J. Kenneth Campbell (Bullworth, Yulee’s Gold) plays a legendary “Indian fighter”-turned-sheriff who is after both of them.

The cast includes Paul Butler (Reign Over Me), Thirza Defoe (Pow Wow Dreams), Laura Kirk (Lisa Picard is Famous), Blake Robbins (Oz), Kevin Geer (American Gangster), Christopher Wheatley (Raising Jeffrey Dahmer), Scott Allegrucci (The Feud), Kip Niven (Magnum Force), Delanna Studi (Edge of America), Queen Bey (Ninth Street) and David Midthunder (Hidalgo).

THE ONLY GOOD INDIAN was shot in various Kansas locations during the summer of 2007. Matt Jacobson is the director of photography. Thomas L. Carmody, Kevin Willmott, Matt Cullen, Greg Hurd, Rick Cowan and Scott Richardson are the producers. J. T. O’Neal, Hanay Geiogamah and Dan Wildcat are co-executive producers.

Kevin Willmott wrote and directed the highly acclaimed independent feature CSA: Confederate States of America, which premiered at The Sundance Film Festival, and Ninth Street, which starred Martin Sheen and Isaac Hayes. He has written scripts for Oliver Stone, NBC, 20th Century Fox and Columbia Tri-Star. Willmott is currently completing post production on Bunker Hill, a feature film starring James McDaniel, Saeed Jaffrey and Laura Kirk (www.bunkerhillthemovie.com).

Wes Studi’s celebrated acting career includes lead roles in Geronimo: An American Legend, Dances With Wolves, Last of the Mohicans, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, Into the West, Seraphim Falls, The New World, Edge of America and Mystery Men. Studi starred as Lt. Joe Leaphorn in a PBS television series based on novels by Tony Hillerman. His upcoming films include James Cameron’s Avatar.
