Hugh Jackman’s been involved with the highly anticipated Unbound Captives for years now, talking about it while he was doing promotion for A Steady Rain. While speaking to My San Antonio, director Madeleine Stowe spoke some more about the project, including the cast line-up thus far.
While at the ranch, Stowe came up with the idea to write “a large romantic Western” that was inspired, she said, by stories of the Hill Country in the late 1800s. “I heard about children who were abducted by Comanche Indians and became so acculturated that they had a hard time returning.
Our ranch had a real history,” she added. “When I lived there, I felt a certain way about Texas that I hadn’t seen filmed yet.”
She’ll start directing The Unbound Captives next year, she said, and already has rounded up the main cast: Hugh Jackman, Rachel Weisz and Robert Pattinson.
