Jim Cummings & Francis Galluppi Talk Wildly Fun Old-School Shoot ‘Em Up ‘THE LAST STOP IN YUMA COUNTY’

Well Go USA will release Francis Galluppi’s (now confimed to be directing an upcoming Evil Dead movie) extraordinary feature directorial debut, the crime thriller The Last Stop In Yuma County this Friday, May 10 in Theaters and On Digital.

Written and directed by Galluppi and starring Jim Cummings (The Wolf Of Snow HollowThe Block Island Sound) and Jocelin Donahue (The House of the Devil, Doctor Sleep), the film centers on a travelling knife salesman who finds himself in a violent hostage situation when two ruthless bank robbers on the run after a recent heist take shelter at the rural Arizona rest stop where he is stranded. And these new arrivals will stop at nothing to evade the authorities and keep their ill-gotten cash, getting more and more on edge each time a new customer enters the restaurant.

The extensive ensemble cast is rounded out with Sierra McCormick (The Vast of Night), Nicholas Logan (Red Right Hand), Michael Abbott Jr. (The Dark and the Wicked), Connor Paolo (A Creature Was Stirring), Alex Essoe (The Pope’s ExorcistStarry Eyes), Robin Bartlett (The Fabelmans), Jon Proudstar (Blood Relatives), Sam Huntington (“Good Girls”), Ryan Masson (Proximity), Barbara Crampton (Re-AnimatorJakob’s Wife), Gene Jones (The Sacrament), Faizon Love (Back on the Strip), and Richard Brake (Mandy3 From Hell).

The film premiered at last year’s Fantastic Fest in September and also took home the best film prize in the Orbita section of the Sitges Film Festival last year.

In celebration of The Last Stop in Yuma County releasing this Friday, CinemaChords’ Howard Gorman and Ashley Northey sat down with writer/director Galluppi and one of the film’s stars, Jim Cummings, to discuss their taut and confined Hitchcockian thriller, amassing such a fantastic ensemble cast which made the film all the more unpredictable, and how Gallupi’s long family history with knife salesmen served as the genesis for one of the central roles, played by Cummings.
