You can't keep a good lawman down for long. After the thrilling and satisfying conclusion of Justified, Timothy Olyphant dusts off the white hat for one last rodeo.
With just about every series or film getting some sort of legacy revival, Olyphant and friends returns for FX's Justified: City Primeval, based on the unrelated but excellent novel from Elmore Leonard. What's most intriguing about this announcement is that what was apparently supposed to be a limited series event may be getting another spin with this Blu-ray being dubbed "Season one." Considering the breadth of Leonard's novels and characters, Kentecky's finest Rayland Givens could pop up in any of them. If we're going to keep bringing back Michael Keaton, I say we bring back his Ray Nicolette from Jackie Brown and Out of Sight. "Givens and Nicolette - they're cops!"
We don't have a list of bonus features yet, and the Amazon listing is up but not yet up for pre-order. Here's the disc specs as we know 'em from the press release:
Having left the hollers of Kentucky 15 years ago, Raylan Givens now lives in Miami, a walking anachronism balancing his life as a U.S. Marshal and part-time father of a 15-year-old girl. His hair is greyer, his hat is dirtier, and the road in front of him is suddenly a lot shorter than the road behind.
A chance encounter on a desolate Florida highway sends him to Detroit. There he crosses paths with Clement Mansell, aka The Oklahoma Wildman, a violent, sociopathic desperado who’s already slipped through the fingers of Detroit’s finest once and aims to do so again. Mansell’s lawyer, formidable Motor City native Carolyn Wilder, has every intention of representing her client, even as she finds herself caught in between cop and criminal, with her own game afoot as well. These three characters set out on a collision course in classic Elmore Leonard fashion, to see who makes it out of the City Primeval alive.
