Heather Graham and Tom Hopper to star in Western action film “Place of Bones.”

The film stars UFC welterweights and mixed martial artists Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone (“The Equalizer 2”) and Corinne Nemec (“Stargate SG-1”). Directed by Audrey Cummings, “Place of Bones” was written by cinematographer-director Richard Taylor.

Set in 1876, an unscrupulous bank robbery sees villainous gang leader Bear John (Hopper) feverishly hunting down his treacherous accomplice, Calhoun, to recover the stolen money. Nearly dead, Calhoun drags himself to a remote farm where Pandora (Graham) lives with her daughter.

As Bear and his band of bandits arrive, intent on brutal revenge, Pandora has no choice but to protect her daughter. But Bear John and his men soon discover that this isn’t Pandora’s first rodeo.

The film is produced by Eric Gozlan under his Goldrush Entertainment banner, and executive produced by Tom Whiteman. Highland Film Group is representing worldwide rights to the film and will continue to sell the title to European film markets in the coming months.

“Place of Bones” also stars David Leeper and Robert A. Daley Jr. produced under their Latigo Films banner, which recently wrapped “Joe Baby,” starring Harvey Keitel.

Cummings said of “Bone Place”: “I’m incredibly excited to have the opportunity to explore the legendary frontier of the 1800s with such an exceptionally talented cast.”

Highland Film Group CEO Ariane Fraser added: “We are thrilled to be working on this female-centric western. With director Audrey Cummings at the helm, Heather Graham is set to deliver one of the strongest performances we’ve seen her in before.”

Highland COO Delphine Perrier added: “This action-packed western will definitely prove that this genre is no longer a male-dominated field. Tom brings muscle and danger as a ruthless criminal – but Heather is not your typical damsel in distress. He is a worthy opponent with some amazing skills.”

Graham recently starred in “The Last Son” and indie darling “The Rest of Us,” as well as the conspiracy thriller “Wonder.” He wrote, directed and starred in the feature film “Half Magic”, which received critical acclaim. On TV, he starred in “Law & Order: True Crime”, “Happiness”, “Californication” and “The Stand”.

Hopper currently stars in the Netflix series “The Umbrella Academy” as Luther Hargreaves, opposite Elliott Page and Aidan Gallagher. He recently starred in the Netflix hit “Love in the Villa” alongside Kat Graham. He will next be seen in the Amazon original feature “Space Cadet” opposite Emma Roberts.

Since retiring from the sport of professional mixed martial arts where he went on to become one of the UFC’s biggest stars, Cerrone has transitioned into an acting career. Meanwhile, Namek’s recent credits include “Joe Baby” and “Run Hide Fight.”

Graham is repped by RMS Productions, Paradigm, APA and Morris Yorn Burns; Hopper is repped by The Gersh Agency, Waring McKenna, Entertainment 360 and R&CPMK; Cerrone has been replaced by Mike Studt at The Gersh Agency; Namek is repped by Los Angeles-based Maverick Artist Agency and Endorse Management Group; Latigo Films is repped by CAA.
