OFFICIAL ‘THAT DIRTY BLACK BAG’ TRAILER
MORE THAN THE EYE CAN DISCERN
From the looks of the trailer, the series seems to be achieving its goal as a reimagining of the classic spaghetti western. It’s definitely not your classic John Wayne western style. We have outlaws, bounty hunters, heads in a bag, and lots of guns and blood. But there are also horror clues, including a pile of human bones. During the trailer, a mysterious eye symbol is shown a few times along with what could be some occult group of some kind. This group and eye symbol will likely play a role in the series.
That dirty black bag is created by Italian filmmaker Mauro Aragoni who also helped co-write the series. True to its spaghetti western inspiration, the series was filmed in Italy, Spain and Morocco. Aragoni also helped co-write the series. The cast also includes Guido Caprino (The miracle), Christian Cooke (The promise), Aiden Gillen (Game of Thrones), Travis Flemmel (viking), Sultan Lvl (Tehran), and Rose Williams (Reign).
‘THIS DIRTY BLACK BAG’ SYNOPSIS
That dirty black bag is a raw, epic and romantic series about the dark side of the Wild West. The story depicts the 8-day standoff between Arthur McCoy, played by Dominic Cooper, an incorruptible sheriff with a troubled past, and Red Bill, played by Douglas Booth, an infamous lone bounty hunter known for beheading his victims and shoving them his head in a dirty black bag, because, as he says, “heads weigh less than bodies”. The drama echoes and pays homage to the classic spaghetti western, capturing the legendary irony of the genre while revolutionizing it in a modern way for new audiences. The series is about bounty hunters, bandits and bloody vendettas, lonely souls driven by passions as great as faith, love and revenge. In the world of That dirty black bagthere are no heroes, no one is invincible and the predators become the prey.
