Travis Fimmel Alec Baldwin

Vikings and Raised By Wolves star Travis Fimmel has joined Alec Baldwin on the cast of western Rust, which Highland Film Group is selling internationally and is set to start principal photography early next month in New Mexico.

Brady Noon and Frances Fisher have also come on board the project from writer-director Joel Souza about outlaw Harland Rust (Baldwin) who breaks his teenage son out of prison after the youngster is convicted of accidental murder. The pair go on the run and are chased by legendary U.S. Marshal Wood Helm and bounty hunter Fenton “Preacher” Lang. Souza and Baldwin created the story.

Baldwin is producing under his El Dorado Pictures with Matt DelPiano of Cavalry Media, Ryan Donnell Smith of Thomasville Pictures, Anjul Nigam of Brittany House Pictures and Ryan Winterstern and Nathan Klingher of Short Porch Pictures.

Allen Cheney, Emily Hunter Salveson and Christopher M.B. Sharp and Jennifer E. Lamb serve as executive producers. Hunter Salveson and Donnell Smith’s Streamline Global are co-financing Rust and CAA Media Finance handles US rights.
