Stuart Townsend On His New Film “Apache Junction,” Future Projects, Thin Lizzy & More

In the new film Apache Junction, the area known as Apache Junction is an outpost of lawlessness, a haven for thieves and cold-blooded killers. After big-city reporter Annabelle Angel (played by Scout Taylor-Compton) arrives to write an article on the town, she becomes a target when notorious gunslinger Jericho Ford (played by Stuart Townsend) comes to her aid. Now Annabelle must entrust her future to a man with a deadly past, as Jericho heads toward a tense showdown in this thrilling Western that unloads a double-barreled blast of action. Costarring country music superstar Trace Adkins and Thomas Jane, Apache Junction was written and directed by Justin Lee (Badland, Swell) and was released by Saban Films to Theaters, On Demand and Digital outlets on September 24, 2021.

The aforementioned Ireland-born Stuart Townsend first made waves in the United States playing the titular role in 2000’s About Adam. Townsend has since portrayed Lestat de Lioncourt in the film adaptation of Anne Rice’s Queen Of The Damned (2002) and Dorian Gray in Alan Moore’s The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003). He made directorial debut with 2007’s Battle In Seattle and was the winner of 4 awards at last year’s L.A. Film Festival, thanks to his work on Grace & Grit. Almost needless to say, Townsend has steadily for over 2 decades in a variety of genres via film and television projects.
