The Sixth Gun Pilot to Begin Filming March 18th

A few days back at Emerald City Comic-Con at the RevolutiONIze Comics Panel, Oni Press talked with five of their creators about current and upcoming projects. The panel consisted of The Sixth Gun creative team CULLEN BUNN, BRIAN HURTT & BILL CRABTREE.

Oni Press’s Editor in Chief, James Lucas Jones, started right away with Bunn, Hurtt, and Crabtree. “We’ve been dying to let The Sixth Gun fans know what’s going on with the newly greenlit pilot on NBC. The pilot begins shooting March 18th and a few cast members have already been announced. Laura Ramsey (The Ruins) will be playing the female lead character, Becky Montcrief. Other cast members recently added are W. Earl Brown (Deadwood) playing General Hume, Graham McTavish (The Hobbit) in the role of Silas Hedgepeth, and Aldis Hodge (Leverage) as Agent Mercer.”

The Sixth Gun pilot is written by Ryan Condal (Hercules: The Thracian Wars), directed by Jeffrey Reiner, and produced by Carlton Cuse (Lost).

When asked what it feels like to have your comic book turned into a TV pilot, The Sixth Gun team couldn’t be more ecstatic. “This has been a big part of my life’s work and I couldn’t be more humbled and overjoyed to see this series picked up,” said Bunn. Hurtt added, "I'm very excited at the prospect of seeing our work brought to life and equally excited by the creative folks involved in this venture! Their enthusiasm and grasp of the world we've created is humbling!"
