George R.R. Martin’s Santa Fe theater to screen ‘Sixth Gun’ pilot

Fans of the supernatural Western The Sixth Gun who were upset last year when NBC passed on the television adaptation may want to pack for an impromptu trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico. That may be the only place you’ll be able to watch the unaired pilot.

A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin, who last year bought the Jean Cocteau Cinema in downtown Santa Fe, has announced the venue will stage two screenings of the episode on May 23.

However, that’s not all: There will be “gunfights, zombie shambles, zombie dance hall girls,” a Q&A with The Sixth Gun creators Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt, and pilot screenwriter/executive producer Ryan Condal. Plus, it’s all free.

“And if you get to the Cocteau by noon, we may even make a zombie of you,” Martin writes on his blog. “The more zombie gunslingers and zombie dance hall girls we have on hand, the more fun it will be. It takes a lot of zombies to make a proper horde …”

The pilot was filmed near Santa Fe, and Martin notes members of the local cast and crew will likely attend, as it’ll be their first opportunity to see the finished product.

Bunn adds that he and Hurtt will be signing at Big Adventure Comics in Santa Fe between the 4 p.m. and 8:30 screenings on May 23, and at Astro-Zombies in Albuquerque on May 24.

Man I wish I could go! This just makes me sad that they pilot wasn’t picked up, so the rest of us won’t ever get to see it. :(

Seriously someone needs to film it & post it on the net. Us hardcore gun fans shouldn’t be deprived this opportunity.
