Looks great, but what is the Peckinpah connection?

Also, your readers who read books may appreciate this link more:

You should know this: famous line from "Ride the High Country:" "I just want to enter my own house justified."

I cannot overemphasize how excited I am about this project. I like Leonard's pulp stylings and have been a fan of Olyphant's since Scream 2.

Famous the line might be, but it hasn't exactly entered the language... Unless perhaps in the somewhat more elegant version actually in the movie:

All I want is to enter my house justified.

It reminds me of that great line from Macbeth:

The real question I have is really should I be alive or should I not be alive?

Anyway, I suspect that the title refers to the (already irritating) hook that the hero only shoots to kill.

What looks great is the setting, the tone, and what I'll bet is a great Eastwood turn by Olyphant.

For full effect, te last post should be read aloud in the voice of Ralph Wiggum: "I say, fellows!"
