Another Movie About Wyoming, But Not Filmed In Wyoming
RED ROCK WEST is a 1993 movie starring Nicolas Cage, Dwight Yoakam, Dennis Hopper and Laura Flynn-Boyle. It’s about Wyoming. Red Rock West, Wyoming to be exact. Except it was filmed in Montana. And Arizona. And not here.
We continue our look at movies with a WYOMING theme. And here’s another one not filmed one frame in our state. Great role as a truck driver by Dwight Yoakam. Nick Cage is a drifter from Texas who comes to Red Rock to look for work and is mistaken for a hit man the sheriff hired to kill his wife.
It pops up on one of the Maxes (Cinemax usually) every once in a while. Check it out and let us know if you liked it or not. Do you think it had a distinct “Wyoming” feel? Or could you tell parts were filmed elsewhere?
