Synopsis:
Quigley, a stoic American sharpshooter from the old West, travels to the untamed wilderness of the Australian outback after answering an advertisement calling for a man who's handy with a rifle. Once in Australia, the Yank discovers that he's been hired by a despicable landowner named Marston who (with the government's support) wants him to eradicate the area's aboriginal population. Furious, Quigley throws the wealthy despot out a nearby window -- and thus begins a heated vendetta by the spurned Marston to exact deadly revenge against the principled outsider.

Notes:
The screenplay for "Quigley Down Under" was written in the 1970s as a potential vehicle for actor Steve McQueen. Directors previously linked to the project include Rick Rosenthal and Lewis Gilbert. Estimated budget $20 million; shot on location in Australia, in Panavision. Simon Wincer previously directed the popular television mini-series "Lonesome Dove" (1989).
