‘Calamity Jane’ Trailer: Emily Bett Rickards And Stephen Amell Reunite As Legendary Old West Gunslingers

For eight seasons on Arrow, Emily Bett Rickards and Stephen Amell were a power couple as Felicity Smoak and Oliver Queen. Interestingly, she was only meant to be there for a single episode, but her popularity kept her around for the long haul. For fans who may have missed their favorite superheroic duo, a reunion is happening over in the upcoming Western film, Calamity Jane, which finds Rickards and Amell as two of the most legendary figures in Old West history.

Rickards plays the titular legendary gunslinger, while Amell is Wild Bill Hicock, outlaw, showman, and shootist. The film centers around his murder at the barrel of Jack McCall’s gun during a poker match, and Calamity Jane’s efforts to get revenge. But first she must break out of prison, then avoid Deadwood‘s sheriff who is hot on her trail.

Also in the cast are Wynonna Earp‘s Tim Rozon, Priscilla Faia (You Me Her), Gage Marsh (It Lives Inside), Garrett Black (Riverdale), Christian Sloan (Star Trek Beyond), Troy Mundle (Prey), and Spencer Borgeson (EXMas).

The film is directed by Terry Miles (Dawn Rider) and co-written by Leon Langford and Collin Watts (Hot Seat).

SYNOPSIS: After Wild Bill (Amell) is killed in a poker game, Calamity Jane (Rickards) must break out of prison and seek revenge before the Deadwood’s Sheriff (Rozon) can arrest them.

Calamity Jane arrives in theaters and digital from Tubi Films on February 2nd.
