DIFF 2011 Video Interview: THE LEGEND OF HELL’S GATE writer/director Tanner Beard and actors Robert Buckley and Lou Pucci

It’s a rarity ’round these parts that a Western gets made, let alone a low, budget indie Western. But writer/director/actor Tanner Beard made just that with THE LEGEND OF HELL’S GATE: AN AMERICAN CONSPIRACY, fictional folklore grounded in historical fact that tells the story of how Hell’s Gate’ at Possum Kingdom Lake, Texas came to be known as it is today. You may even recognize a few familiar icons from the Old West such as ‘Doc’ Holliday and Jesse James along the way in this here legend!

We sat down with Beard, along with Robert Buckley (One Tree Hill), Lou Taylor Pucci (THUMBSUCKER), and producer Suzanne Weinert, to discuss making a Western with roots in history, some of the rough and tumble things that happened on a set full of cowboys, Western films that influenced HELL’S GATE, and more!

Robert’s upcoming movie ‘The Legend of Hell’s Gate: An American Conspiracy’ will premiere at the Dallas International Film Festival 2011 (March 31 – April 10) and the Newport Beach Film Festival 2011 (April 28 – May 5)

Surrounded by whisky-fueled outlaws and a treacherous wilderness, how is one to survive? Based on real events, this Texas based tale uncovers the mystery of the events surrounding the legendary Hell’s Gate, a cliff formation that rises out of Possum Kingdom Lake in Texas. When a curious errand boy catches wind of one of America’s most infamous crimes, he falls in with two desperate men on the wrong side of the law. Crossing paths with some of the West’s most notorious figures, these three outlaws fight for their lives in the pursuit of fame and riches. Few are to be trusted, as their interwoven stories prove that everyone has a hidden agenda, and by no means is anyone innocent. Fueled by a talented ensemble cast THE LEGEND OF HELL’S GATE blends legend and history into a Western spectacle that recounts the treacherous existence in post Civil War Texas.

Thanks to the amazing Shawn Corson for making us a new wordpress theme/layout! I’m totaly stoked about it and I hope every single one of you is as well.

As for everyone else reading this we will be updating more often now on this site as well. So look out for our updates.

Sincerely, the Staff at Robert Buckley Online

It’s a bit under two months ahead of us (May 2nd) but we’re going to start planning our official Robert Buckley Birthday Project. Afterall he’s turning 30 this year and we think as loyal fans we should do something for him. As a little thank you.

My idea was actualy simple but honest:

– everyone (from all over the world) can make whatever they want for Robert. From letters to creative designs to some artworks or little gadgets.

– there will be an address where you can send all of your work to and from there we’ll put all the gifts together in a box and send it out to a friend of Rob, who will personally give it to him around his birthday.

– everyone who wants to join make sure you comment on this note and invite as much people as you can. Would be great.

– you can always send in stuff through mail as well.

– if you want in on this don’t forget to mail me for the exact address you have to send it to: s_rainheart@hotmail.com

– for example : write him letters, make something artistic, make a video, DO WHATEVER YOU WANNA DO FOR ROB !

Thanks! You’re all GREAT!
