Lionsgate and Mimran Schur Pictures present, The Kid in association with Suretone Pictures, a Mimran Schur Pictures / Suretone Pictures production.

This western about Billy The Kid is looking really good if you ask us. Continue on to watch the upcoming film The Kid trailer starring Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, and Dane DeHaan… reports that The Kid puts actor Vincent D’Onofrio stepping behind the camera to direct.

Vincent D’Onofrio is in the director’s seat this time around. The new western movie puts a different spin on the old legend. Vincent has also brought over a couple familiar faces from The Magnificent Seven remake, Chris Pratt + Ethan Hawke.

The movie focuses on Pat Garrett, played by Ethan Hawke, who gained notoriety for being the lawman who killed Billy the Kid.

In this movie, Chris Pratt plays a straight-up bad guy for once, which is something we’ve never really seen from him before.

Chris Pratt expressed his excitement for the movie on Twitter, writing:

We had so much fun shooting this badass western called The Kid directed by Vincent D’onofrio I’m so proud to be part of this movie where I play a real sick SOB. Watch it to see me, Vince, Ethan and a few other players from Mag7. Don’t miss it in theatres March 8th!!


In this thrilling Western, 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.

The film will be released in theaters on March 8th, 2019.
