Sneak Peek: Raging Stallion Starts Last Man Epic



Raging Stallion Studios has announced the start of production of its latest big-budget film, and we have a first look from the set. To the Last Man is currently shooting in New Mexico and will feature a star-studded (and largely exclusive) cast. Heading up the talent are Ricky Sinz and Scott Tanner, who play the heads of rival ranches battling for access to water rights. Co-stars in the project (with a budget rumored to be more than $200,000) include GAYVN Performer of the Year Jake Deckard and exclusives Antonio Biaggi, Damien Crosse, Logan McCree, R.J. Danvers, Tristan Jaxx, Bo Matthews and Damian Rios. Guest performers include Antton Harri, Jackson Wild, Jimmy Tripps, Rick Powers and Scott Fremont.

The film, which is based on the Zane Grey novel of the same title, is being filmed on location at two ranches (one in New Mexico and one in Californa) and is jointly directed by Chris Ward, Ben Leon and Tony Dimarco (his first project since leaving Lucas Entertainment earlier this year). Dimarco also serves as head writer and Leon is director of cinematography. It is the San Francisco–based studio’s biggest production since last year’s military epic Grunts, which won numerous awards at the GAYVN Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Director and many others.

“We really enjoy shooting blockbuster films,” RSS president Chris Ward says. “All of us are really looking forward to doing a real honest-to-goodness Western. It’s a sexy genre and it really goes with our company name! This movie is going to go where no porn film has gone before—it’s really a gay marriage between adult and mainstream product that tells a story and shows lots of amazing sex. Some of the scenes will be pretty controversial—there is one scene in particular that is very upsetting.” Ward didn’t elaborate, but with this group of manly men hanging out on a remote ranch, we can only imagine!

Directing his first RSS movie, award-winner Tony Dimarco says, “I’m very excited to be working on this film with such a stellar cast and crew. Rugged and handsome, the models for this film look like they could be right out of a Sergio Leone Western with the added bonus of being incredibly sexy and well hung!” Dimarco adds that it was a challenge to write a gay porn Western. “The unspoken emotions of the mythic cowboy mixed with a brooding sexuality makes writing this type of film rich with possibilities. Minimal, yet complex, the Western genre is full of drama and story.”

To the Last Man
is set for release on Thanksgiving weekend in both regular and Blu-ray formats. For more information and updates from the set, visit ragingstallion.com and chriswardpornblog.com.
