Sean Patrick Flanery (The Boondock Saints) and Lew Temple (The Walking Dead, The Devil’s Rejects) have saddled up for the horror-western Spirit Reckoning, written and directed by Jimmy Lee Combs (Terror Tales).


Flanery stars as gunfighter Lawson Lovette whose psychotic tendencies and skills with a revolver make him the perfect candidate to aid our hero Sam Conley AKA “The Skull Cowboy” on his blood-soaked journey of revenge. Temple is set to play the role of Ottis Clement who is just as crazed as Lawson, sparking an intense rivalry between the two men. Ottis causes chaos and anarchy in the Wild West alongside his brother Ed and leader of their posse Savage Bill.


Spirit Reckoning is a fun-filled action-horror-western that has never been done like this before and we’re billing it as John Woo meets Sergio Leone meets the horror genre,” Jimmy Lee Combs said. “The Lawson Lovette character is a real ball of fire with some great wisecracks along the way and for me was the most fun to write of all the characters. Being huge fans of both The Boondock Saints films and Sean Patrick Flanery’s work, we knew he would be the perfect choice to match the wit, charm, and crazy side of Lawson.


Things heat up between Lawson and Ottis played by Temple much like the dynamic between Doc Holliday and Johnny Ringo in the 1993 classic Tombstone, a chemistry Jimmy Lee finds important between these two characters.


We’re thrilled to be working with a veteran like Lew who not only has the look we’re going for but the range to play a character that can go to psychotic lengths…I mean just watch his performance as Psych0-Head in Rob Zombie’s 31.


Spirit Reckoning is set to begin filming this year in both Colorado and California from Heart and Fire Productions and Spirit Reckoning LLC, with a 2020 release date in mind.
