We had the opportunity of interviewing Wes Miller for a podcast about making of Hell on the Border:
Hell on the Border is a western thriller set in 1875 and based on the true story of the legendary Bass Reeves (David Gyasi), the first black deputy U.S. marshal west of the Mississippi River. Having escaped from slavery after the Civil War, Bass Reeves arrives in Arkansas seeking a job with the law. To prove himself, he must hunt down a deadly outlaw (Frank Grillo) with the help of a grizzled journeyman.
