First announced in 2019, the much-anticipated comedy-adventure “Cowgirl’s Last Ride” has finally been given a window for shooting.
Resonate Entertainment, in collaboration with Saison des Femmes Entertainment and HanWay Films, has announced that filming will commence in the first half of 2024.
With a star-studded cast led by two-time Oscar winner Geena Davis, this cinematic odyssey through rural Texas is already generating considerable buzz.
The Ensemble Cast: A Blend of Talent and Charisma
Geena Davis, celebrated for her roles in “Thelma & Louise” and “A League of Their Own,” takes center stage as Fay, a spirited retired Texas cowgirl.
She’s joined by an equally impressive cast featuring Scoot McNairy of “Argo” and “12 Years a Slave” fame, Julia Sweeney known for her “Saturday Night Live” sketches, and Jill Scott, who wowed audiences in “The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency” and “Get On Up.”
The Creative Minds: A Symphony of Experience
At the helm is director Leena Yadav, whose previous work “Parched” premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2015.
The script is penned by eighth-generation Texan Kris Hunt, promising an authentic take on the Lone Star State.
Adding visual flair to the project is director of photography Russell Carpenter, whose credits include visual masterpieces like “Avatar” and “Titanic.”
The Plot: A Tale of Family, Identity, and Self-Discovery
The narrative follows Fay as she breaks free from her Dallas nursing home, setting her sights on her native East Texas.
Her more conventional son Randall, portrayed by Scoot McNairy, is planning to sell her old home and is beside himself with worry as he sets off in pursuit.
Along her journey, Fay encounters Cali, played by Jill Scott, a meeting that serves as a pivotal moment in her quest for self-discovery.
The Producers: Female-Driven Storytelling
Producing the film are Susan Cartsonis and Suzanne Farwell, the dynamic duo behind some of the highest-grossing female-driven films like “What Women Want” and “The Holiday.”
They are joined by Brent Emery and Aseem Bajaj, adding more firepower to this already formidable team.
Casting Brilliance: The Nancy Klopper Touch
Veteran casting director Nancy Klopper, whose portfolio includes classics like “Ray” and “Fantastic Four,” is the cherry on top for this production. Her involvement guarantees a cast that can do justice to this compelling narrative.
