Cowboys for Christ - The Organization & The Movie

I can't remember exactly the complete details of the event, but I remember in college attending an event where we ate true Texas Barbecue and there was a rancher from the organization Cowboys for Christ who spoke. Whatever you picture this "Cowboy for Christ" was like, is probably dead on.

Anyways, I was surprised when I recently ran across this poster for the movie called Cowboys for Christ. What is this about, I wondered? A documentary? The next Christian themed film like "A Walk to Remember?"

But alas, nothing of the type. It's the movie poster for a horror movie staring Christopher Lee and Joan Collins directed by Robin Hardy (1973's Wicker Man), based on Hardy's on book.

Apparently, the story is about a gospel singer and cowboy boyfriend who leave Texas to go preach door-to-door in Scotland, and who find some people interested in the Christian faith, but really have other horrific plans in mind.

The film begins filming in April in Scotland...and somehow I think the rancher I saw share his faith years ago will not be seeing this film.

You have to wonder if the movie might steal the organizations tag line: "Are you ridin' with Jesus?"

This is wild. It kind of sickens me a little bit.

That's a straight-to-video cover if I ever saw one. What is that little smiley face carved onto?? Or is it a sunflower?

I totally agree with Fox's comment about the movie poster/cover. Unprofessionally lame and wierd. I'm not sure what image would say "Cowboys for Christ" for me, but that's not it. That's like "Cowboy caught between the cross and the castle - will the tree man be able to save him?"

C-razy! Do you know where in Scotland it's filming. Maybe I count saunter in to the set.
