Marina Antunes [Celluloid 06.28.11] movie trailer news drama western

The last time there was any sort of update on Alan David Morgan's supernatural western The Debt Collector, the film had been awarded an AFI Production Grant and the producers were looking for additional funding to complete the film. I'm assuming that's old news since the film has been playing a number of low-key festivals and was recently scheduled for "Comic-Con International: San Diego Independent Film Festival" (CCI-IFF, a festival I didn't even know existed until recently).

Set in the 1930s, the film follows Hoovy Nash, an aging gunslinger who has re-invented himself as a debt collector for the bank; collecting by any means possible. "When a collection goes awry a little girl is left orphaned and Hoovy sets out to try to help her. Saving this girl could be his way into heaven, or it might just be his ticket straight to hell."

The Debt Collector sounds promising and the teaser trailer for the film suggests some good things. I'm always a bit put-back by seeing modern technology (in this case the car in the background) in a western setting but it definitely makes sense for the period not to mention we're always up for a good supernatural romp. If it happens to have western overtones: bonus.

looks like it's shot really well

also looks like that guy who is in a suite could represent Satan. Is he the one that is talking during the trailer? I think so.
