Written by: Norman C Jones The projected budget of $1 million is due to the fact that the film has few locations, a limited amount of roles, and small visual effects.
The majority of the budget will be spent on talent and locations, because this is a Western and requires spot-on acting performances.
Much like most low budget Westerns are not primarily star driven, although we shall try to attract top names. Rufus Buck Gang has been written specifically to support a low budget, which could create tremendous upside for fans of the Western genre.
