Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday will hunt more outlaws in Wild Guns

04.05.2011

One of them's your huckleberry, and the other's got hell comin' with him.

While we're not exactly getting a TOMBSTONE sequel, the Western genre is still tall in the saddle (let's all forget JONAH HEX, yeah?). And now real legends Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday will get together on screen again for more ficitonal Old West action in a new tale called WILD GUNS.

Warner Bros. and 300 producer Gary Nunnari have a script from T.S. Nowlin that's described as being in the vein of TOMBSTONE and SHERLOCK HOLMES, so obviously the emphasis will be on their quippy relationship and more big adventure than true grit.

The story will find the renowned lawman and his gunslinging chum as they team up "to rescue the daughter of Sitting Bull, who has been kidnapped by a powerful Shaman with mysterious powers who is terrorizing the Western plains."

Nowlin also penned a Christopher Columbus movie that McG (??) plans to direct.

I don't care how much older (and bloated) they are, get Russell and Kilmer back in the saddle!

I'm feeling this idea. It would be cool to see Doc and Wyatt Earp on the big screen again. I like most of the premise except for the "mysterious powers" bit. I don't want to see this movie turned into another Van Helsing. This needs to be a raw western if they're going to be using Wyatt and Holliday.

I like this idea. Although I would like something done more in a True Grit than a Sherlock Holmes kinda way.

And might I suggest (to no one in particular, but anyway) James Franco as Earp and Joseph Gordon-Leviit as Holliday? Those two seem to be in everything these days already anyway. Make it happen Hollywood!

Sounds interesting, especially in the vein of "Tombstone" and "Sherlock Holmes".

I just don't like the idea of McG directing. I mean I enjoyed what he did with "Terminator: Salvation", but I another director would be more suitable for a movie like this. Maybe a director who has experience with Westerns.

Whoever they get to play Earp and Holliday will come nowhere close to the perfect performances of Kurt Russell and Val Kilmer. Unless infact they get Russell and Kilmer back reprising

I think you misread the article. The article does not say that McG is directing this movie. It says that the writer of this screenplay also wrote a script about Christopher Columbus that McG is planning on directing.

You have actually watched Tombstone right? Val Kilmer dies at the end so there would be no reprising role and besides he's a fat ass now. I'm truly sorry you like Terminator Salvation (notice I didn't put quotes around a movie title) That movie was nothing more than a polished turd.
