Look what we found online! Who Got The Role has unearthed They Die By Dawn, a film that has been a bit obscured from the public — which is kind of strange giving its all-star cast.
They Die By Dawn is a Black Western film starring an entirely African American cast. The film comes from the mind of Jeymes Samuel who also directs.
In the movie, we find four gun-slinging outlaws with a bounties on their heads. They all set a date for a shootout in Langston, Oklahoma where one man will be left standing to collect the bounty for all.
The star-studded cast includes Jesse Williams, Michael K, Williams, Isaiah Washington, Nate Parker, Bokeem Woodbine, Clifton Powell, Rosario Dawson, Giancarlo Esposito, and Erykah Badu.
Strangely, the film is a short and not a feature length. However, from the look of the trailer below, which was released today, production design and performances appears to be uniformly excellent. If given the chance, I believe the film has potential to have a life in theaters. See for yourself in the trailer below…
While shooting months back in Melody Ranch, Los Angeles, Dawson tweeted some photos of her cast members on set, dressed in full costume. Flip the page to check out some of these photos.
