Lionsgate has released the trailer for The Kid, the western directed by Vincent D’Onofrio from a script by Andrew Lanham.
In The Kid, a young boy, Rio (Jake Schur), is forced to go on the run across the American Southwest in a desperate attempt to save his sister (Leila George) from his villainous uncle (Chris Pratt). Along the way, he encounters Sheriff Pat Garrett (Ethan Hawke), on the hunt for the infamous outlaw Billy the Kid (Dane DeHaan).
Rio finds himself increasingly entwined in the lives of these two legendary figures as the cat and mouse game of Billy the Kid’s final year of life plays out. Ultimately Rio is forced to choose which type of man he is going to become, the outlaw or the man of valor, and will use this self-realization in a final act to save his family.
Lionsgate and Mimran Schur Pictures present, in association with Suretone Pictures, a Mimran Schur Pictures / Suretone Pictures production.
The film will be released in theaters on March 8, 2019.
