Mad Men‘s January Jones is set to star in a new period drama opposite Ed Harris called Sweetwater. Deadline reports that Logan and Noah Miller are set to direct, and Jason Netter is producing. Filming is slated to begin this July in New Mexico.
Sweetwater is set in 1886 and follows "a young widow (Jones) [who] risks all to avenge her husband’s murder at the hands of a brutal sheep rancher. Harris plays the town sheriff who helps Jones avenge her husband’s death."
Harris has worked with the Millers before on Touching Home, where he played a role based on their real life father. This sounds like a role that is perfect for Harris, and I am interested in seeing the beauty of New Mexico captured on screen.
Are you looking forward to seeing Sweetwater?
