Acteur Vincent D’Onofrio (Daredevil, Jurassic World) zal de western The Kid regisseren. Tevens zal hij hier een rol in spelen. De film geeft een alternatieve kijk op de legende van crimineel Billy the Kid, die op 21 jarige leeftijd het onderspit delfde door de hand van sheriff Pat Garrett in 1881.

De vrijgegeven samenvatting: [THE KID] is told through the eyes of a young boy who is torn between his admiration of the gunfighter legend and his need to save his family. The boy’s uncle has murdered his father and when he catches up to the boy and his sister, the uncle turns her out as a prostitute. The enraged boy tracks down Billy the Kid, hoping his hero will get his sister back. The boy finds his romantic notion of the gunfighter is false and that Billy is an uncaring and selfish adolescent. And then the youth discovers true heroism in Sheriff Pat, who, after gunning down the outlaw, takes on the challenge of reuniting the boy with his sister.

Wie D’Onofrio zal spelen is nog niet bekend. Andere acteurs die  aan het project zijn verbonden zijn James Franco en Ethan Hawke.
