Wicker Man Sequel Scrapped

Cowboys for Christ not saddling up.

by | April 8, 2008 | Comments

Turns out there is a sequel that can’t get made.

Moviehole (picking up on an STV.TV report) shares the news that a “long-planned sequel” to 1973’s The Wicker Man has been put on ice because the filmmakers “just couldn’t get the money together.”

The setback, described by producer Gill Dykes as “bitterly disappointing,” ends work on Cowboys for Christ, based on a screenplay written by Robin Hardy, director of the original Wicker Man. According to Moviehole, it would have gone a little something like this:

The film was set to star Christopher Lee, Joan Collins and Paul Wesley. In it, young Christians Beth and Steve, a gospel singer and her cowboy boyfriend, leave Texas to preach door-to-door in Scotland . When, after initial abuse, they are welcomed with joy and elation to Tressock, the border fiefdom of Sir Lachlan Morrison, they assume their hosts simply want to hear more about Jesus. Not so.
