Courtney Hoffman’s widely acclaimed feminist western short film, “The Good Time Girls” starring Laura Dern (Jurassic Park, October Sky, Wild, The Fault In Our Stars), will be fully financed and produced into a feature adaptation by Argent Pictures. The film will mark the feature directorial debut of Hoffman, who just last month signed on to direct “Ruthless,” for Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Partners.
“The Good Time Girls” is a blood-soaked western that follows a group of brothel workers, turned female vigilantes, who band together to exact revenge on the wanted outlaws who have been terrorizing the American West. It’s a film that subverts all our old expectations of this dude centric genre with Laura’s character Clementine hatching a masterfully devious plot to get even, rifle-in-hand. And trust us, that bathtub scene doesn’t leave us with any questions about exactly who’s running Hoffman’s Old West.
Hoffman says “The Good Time Girls is dedicated to the ideology that when women unite, incredible change is possible. I can’t imagine a more important time to tell this story than in our current climate. I am so grateful that Argent Pictures shares my vision and is supporting me along with my producers to homage a male dominated genre with a feminine perspective, on and off the camera.”
