Winter in the Blood Update

The production of the motion picture based on James Welch’s novel Winter in the Blood continues to move forward. The official Winter in the Blood website recently made several casting announcements. Chaske Spencer has been cast as Virgil First Raise, David Morse as Airplane Man, Gary Farmer as Lame Bull, and Julia Jones as Agnes. The Winter in the Blood website includes details about each of the actors, but it’s especially good to see Gary Farmer (who played Nobody in the film Dead Man and Arnold Joseph in Smoke Signals) in the cast. Sherman Alexie has also signed on as an Associate Producer. And David Morse, who is a very visible actor in everything from House, M. D. to Treme, will be familiar to fans of contemporary westerns for his role in Down in the Valley. Chaske Spencer and Julia Jones have both appeared in an obscure and little-known series of films known collectively as the Twilight Saga.

    Hello! I was wondering if you might want to do another post on how the film is moving along? We are getting ready to shoot at the end of August. We have our cast – Chaske Spencer, Julia Jones, Gary Farmer, Dana Wheeler Nicholson- and are now in the final stages of fundraising. We would love to see another post from WLA! Thanks!
