Booboo Stewart Mounts Up For The UnBroken
Bass Entertainment Pictures announced that BooBoo Stewart has been cast in the role of “Yellow Horse” in the upcoming independent feature film, THE UNBROKEN. The screenplay was penned by Emmy-nominated and award-winning writer turned director Kim Bass (IN LIVING COLOR, JUNKYARD DOG, KILL SPEED) who will also direct what he describes as a “fast-paced, youth-oriented, right-against-wrong, love conquers all, white hat versus black hat action western.” THE UNBROKEN, which will be produced in association with Aurum Film Group, is scheduled to begin principal photography in spring of 2015 and will be produced by Beautiful Lie Pictures’ Deanna Shapiro (THE LEGEND OF CRYIN’ RYAN, JUNKYARD DOG).
THE UNBROKEN is set in the unforgiving and lawless Arizona territory circa 1863. It tells the story of a young loner (Colt), to be played by Jeremy Sumpter, who risks it all to rescue his beloved mail-order bride (Salor), whom he’s never met, from a gang of ruthless outlaws led by the cold-blooded killer who murdered Colt’s mother and left him for dead the day he was born… his father. THE UNBROKEN is a passion project for Bass who has been a longtime fan of the classic western film genre.
Booboo Stewart, one of Hollywood’s hottest rising young stars, really responded enthusiastically to the screenplay and the character, stated writer-director Bass. “Boo is not only passionate about the role of “Yellow Horse,” he’s perfect for it”, said Bass.
Having come into his own of late, arguably achieving Hollywood heartthrob status, Stewart played Seth Clearwater in the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn and most recently the MUTANT “WARPATH” in the latest X-Men film (X-MEN: Days Of Future Past) that has, so far, grossed nearly 750 million dollars in worldwide box office.
