WATCH: Teaser Trailer For New Colin Farrell Movie

Irish actor Colin Farrell steps into Clint Eastwood's cowboy boots for the remake of the Southern Gothic horror movie, 'The Beguiled'.

The first teaser trailer for the movie, which co-stars Nicole Kidman and Kirsten Dunst, was uploaded onto social media sites last night.

The film is directed by Sofia Coppola and promises to be very different from the original version made in 1971. Based on a novel by Thomas Cullinan, 'The Beguiled' is set in the Deep South and tells the story of a civil war solider who is nursed back to health by a group of women in a girls school... with a terrifying twist.

The original movie was told from Clint Eastwood's character's point of view, but Coppola says her version will focus more on the film's female characters.

"The main crux of the story is about the dynamics between a group of women all stuck together, and then also the power shifts between men and women,” she says. “So for me, it’s very universal, but it’s in this exotic setting of the Southern gentility.”

The movie, which is Coppola's first film since 2013's 'The Bling Ring', will hit cinema screens in June
