Paramount Network Orders ‘The Last Cowboy’ Unscripted Series From Taylor Sheridan

  • Deadline
Paramount Network has ordered The Last Cowboy, an original unscripted series from Yellowstone co-creator Taylor Sheridan, Truly Original and 101 Studios.

The Last Cowboy features highly-skilled horsemen and trainers competing in the intense, high-stakes world of professional reining. It chronicles the lives of eight men and women who compete on the regular reining circuit, a western-based competition where riders guide horses through a precise pattern of circles, spins and stops. These horsemen are determined to elevate and preserve the cowboy tradition as they train and engage in the exclusive ultra-competitive sport.

In conjunction with the series, Sheridan is also launching a reining event called “Run for a Million,” the sport’s first-ever, arena-based competition with a $1 million purse, marking the largest in its history. The upcoming experience will take place on August 15-17, 2019 at the South Point Arena and Equestrian Center in Las Vegas, and the competition will come to life in the series finale.

Emmy spotlight: Kevin Costner modernizes the image of the Wild West on the Paramount Network’s ‘Yellowstone’

Emmy spotlight: Kevin Costner modernizes the image of the Wild West on the Paramount Network’s ‘Yellowstone’
Clint Eastwood, Jeff Bridges, Robert Duvall, Tommy Lee Jones, Ian McShane, Ed Harris, Chris Cooper — all these performers are part of a vanishing breed of actor who can pull off being a cowboy in movies and on TV.

But could they be believable as a modern-day rancher protecting his family’s Montana cattle ranch that is the size of Rhode Island from being encroached upon by lumber companies, oil drillers, home builders, Native American casino interests and others looking to make a killing by destroying nature in the raw.

There is one actor who has the giddy-up to play such a nuanced patriarch and not devolve into a J.R. Ewing caricature and that is Kevin Costner. He’s proven that on the Paramount Network’s popular neo-Western “Yellowstone” as the head of the Dutton clan on a spread where you are just as likely to bump into a designer-suited

Cold-Blooded Murder: The Best Crime Thrillers Set In The Snow

Thrillers set against a snowy backdrop have been an aesthetic choice for years. The calm but deadly environment is often used as an obstacle for characters to overcome or perish in, adding to the rising human threat around them. When used well, a wintery setting can be incredibly effective at bringing the chills.

To celebrate the release of Cold Pursuit on 24th June, we take a look at some of the best crime thrillers set against the snow.

Fargo (1996)

The Coen Brothers’ classic sees the inept Jerry (William H. Macy) embark on a kidnapping scheme in order to escape his financial problems. As the plan falls apart and what was supposed to be a victimless crime turns bloody, a tenacious local sheriff (Frances McDormand) sets her sights on solving the ever-increasing number of murders.

Sheridan struck gold with an Oscar nomination for his original script for “Hell or High Water,” which was also nominated for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor for Jeff Bridges and Best Editing.

Last year, Sheridan went full-on westward ho with the arrival of “Yellowstone” on the newly minted cable channel Paramount Network. The cross between “Dallas” and old-school ‘60s TV Westerns like “The Rifleman” and “Gunsmoke

Elizabeth Olsen Recalls Her ‘Terrible’ Audition for Role of Daenerys in ‘Game of Thrones’
Elizabeth Olsen is now Scarlet Witch in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and she almost could’ve been Queen Daenerys Targaryen in “Game of Thrones!”

The actress told Vulture that she once auditioned for the role of Khaleesi aka the Mother of Dragons — using two different accents.

“When I first started working, I just auditioned for everything, because I like auditioning. And I auditioned for Khaleesi. I forgot that,” she said. “It was the most awkward audition I’d ever had.”

Leone Film Group at 30: From Spaghetti Westerns to Hollywood Movies

  • Variety
Italy’s Leone Film Group, the company founded by Spaghetti Western master Sergio Leone, has been on a roaring roll since 2012.

That’s when his children, Raffaella and Andrea, who now run the company, spotted a theatrical distribution gap left open by Medusa and Rai Cinema and stepped in to swiftly sign an output deal with DreamWorks. This, in turn, propelled its expansion.

The two Leone siblings hadn’t been idle before then. They were already among the top distributors of TV movies in Italy, having delved into that market in 1989, the year their father founded the company. That was also the year that Leone Sr. died.

In those days, driven by Silvio Berlusconi’s Mediaset, Italian TV was flourishing, recalls Andrea. “For us, movies are a passion; but at the same time they are business,” he says. During that period, “there was serious opportunity to do business in that segment.
