The Old Way is an upcoming American Western film directed by Brett Donowho, from a screenplay by Carl W. Lucas, and starring Nicolas Cage. The film is set to be theatrically released by Saban Films on January 6, 2023. Retired gunslinger Colton Briggs lives a peaceful life with his daughter, but comes face to face with his past upon when the son of a man he murdered years ago arrives to take his revenge. Filming occurred in Montana. In October 2021, the film's crew members complained about property key assistant and armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed's handling of firearms, including an incident in which she discharged a weapon without warning and caused lead actor Nicolas Cage to walk off set. Gutierrez-Reed would later work as armorer on the set of Rust, and be a principal character in the shooting incident that killed Halyna Hutchins and wounded director Joel Souza. In January 2022, Saban Films acquired the film's distribution rights.
