Paul Schrader Plans Western “Nine Men”

Paul Schrader Plans Western Nine Men

Filmmaker Paul Schrader looks to be following up the rousing critical success of his introspective drama and awards contender “First Reformed” with something a bit different.

Awards Ace reporter Erick Weber tweeted yesterday that he spoke with Schrader right after his original screenplay win at the Critics Choice Awards and he revealed: “he’s writing a western titled NINE MEN FROM NOW with Ethan Hawke & Willem Dafoe as its two leads.”

Schrader was reportedly very pleased with how A24 handled the release of “First Reformed” and so potentially they may be teaming up again (that’s not confirmed). He’s also expressed in the past a lack of interest in taking his work to the streaming service market.
