AB Productions is releasing its first look at actor Vernon Wells (The Road Warrior, Commando) in the upcoming time travel western, Showdown In Yesteryear. Post-production is underway with principal photography wrapped officially as of Wednesday evening – per the announcement – with Wells joined by actress Debra Lamb, and starring actor Jeff Grennell, with O’Hearn also making an appearance.
Showdown in Yesteryear follows Grennell as contemporary sad sack Daryl Dumwoody, who discovers a mysterious door in the woods which transports him to a frontier town in the 1800’s. There, Dumwoody contends with oppressive town boss Orson Kane (Wells), a fiercely independent widow (Lamb), and a gang of ruthless outlaws while attempting to find a way back to his own time.
Filmed at the wild west attraction Dogwood Pass in Ohio, Showdown In Yesteryear is directed by Timothy O’Hearn and cinematographer Aaron Bratcher. Gregory Lamberson (Widow’s Point) penned the script based on O’Hearn’s 2019 short, The Door, which, among its accolades, just recently scored Director’s Choice awards for Best Fantasy Film, and Best Actor for Grennell, at The Wild Bunch Film Festival in Willcox, Arizona.
O’Hearn, Bratcher and Grennell are producing the pic whose distribution rights are now up for grabs.
