Trio join Crowe, Bale in oater remake
Lionsgate Films’ “3:10 to Yuma” is galloping to the starting gate with a full cast.Joining Russell Crowe and Christian Bale in the remake of the 1957 Glenn Ford oater are Peter Fonda, Gretchen Mol and Dallas Roberts. James Mangold is directing the pic and producing with his partner, Cathy Konrad. Ben Foster (“X-Men: The Last Stand”) and Vinessa Shaw (“Melinda and Melinda”) also have been cast. Lensing begins Oct. 23 in New Mexico. Pic, which has a production budget of $50 million, is co-financed by Relativity Media.
