Why is James Marsters an alien-fighting cowboy in High Plains Invaders?
James Marsters (Dragonball Evolution) told SCI FI Wire that he’s completed filming on the upcoming SCI FI Channel original movie High Plains Invaders, in which voracious alien bugs invade an Old West town. Marsters plays a guilt-ridden, lovelorn man who’s preparing to die when he’s called upon to be a hero and help save the town. “That was a fun shoot,” Marsters said last week in an exclusive telephone interview to promote Dragonball Evolution. “We filmed that in Romania. It’s a love story in a cowboy town. It’s about a man who killed too many Indians. He burned too many villages and couldn’t live with himself anymore. He comes into town to get hanged, because he’s also been robbing trains, and he finds that the woman he abandoned is living in that town.” Just before Marsters’ character is about to be hanged, the invasion happens, and he finds himself the reluctant leader of a small group of people trying to survive and get out of town.
