It’s titledThey Die By Dawn- described as a western featuring black cowboys, conceived and directed byJeymes Samuel of The Bullitts (a collaborative group of artists - both music and film - headed by Samuel).

And you’ll be impressed with this all-star cast forThey Die By Dawn:Idris Elba,Jesse Williams,Michael K. Williams,Isaiah Washington,Bokeem Woodbine,Clifton Powell,Harry Lennix,Denzel Whitaker,Roger Guenveur Smith, Rosario Dawson,Kelly Hu, Shanola Hampton,Erykah Badu, and others.
But it’s not a feature film unfortunately; it’s a short (I don’t have length info yet).
The film is reportedly based on a series of real-life stories.
Here’s the synop:
Four outlaws with a bounty on each head, set a date for a shootout in Langston, Oklahoma. The last man takes the collective bounty. Violence and mayhem ensue.
Info is limited at the moment, but I did find one profile of The Bullitts that said the project“aims to intertwine narrative, suspense and music into one studio development.” In essence, they plan to make a film :)
I’m definitely curious what Samuel is cooking up here, especially with this cast. 
The film is currently in production, with shooting apparently already underway - if not very soon to be - in Melody Ranch, Los Angeles.
Rosario Dawson tweeted the pictures above and below of some of the cast members in costume, on set.

Okay. Who knew about this and DIDN’T TELL ME IMMEDIATELY?
Tumblr, we’re obviously going to have to double feature this with Django Unchained.

YES to this! Full-cast black, all the time!!!!! I fully support this.
