Ladies and gentlemen, this would be what you would call a 'dream cast' for a first time feature director. Harvey Keitel has just joined Mads Mikkelsen and Roy Dupuis in the cast of Rodrigo Gudino's Cut Throats Nine. Gudino's debut feature after a trio of highly acclaimed shorts, Cut Throats Nine is a hard edged horror-western slated to go in to production in early 2010. Here's the full announcement:

Keitel joins a growing international cast comprised of Danish superstar MADS MIKKELSEN (Casino Royale, Valhalla Rising) and Canadian luminary ROY DUPUIS (The Rocket, La Femme Nikita).
