Billy the Kid has been the subject of many films, most notably Sam Peckinpah’s 1973 classic Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid, which starred Kris Kristofferson as the Western outlaw and James Coburn as the lawman tasked with killing him. Now it’s actor-turned-director Vincent D’Onofrio’s turn to offer his take on the subject with The Kid, in cahoots with his Magnificent Seven castmates Chris Pratt and Ethan Hawke.
Arriving March 8, The Kid stars newcomer Jake Schur as a young boy named Rio, who is forced to go on the run across the American Southwest in a desperate attempt to save his sister (Leila George) from his villainous uncle (Pratt). Along the way, he encounters Sheriff Pat Garrett (Hawke), who’s on the hunt for Billy the Kid (Dane DeHaan). Rio finds himself increasingly entwined in the lives of these two legendary figures as the cat-and-mouse game of Billy the Kid’s final year of life plays out.
