No, it's not a "Sunset" sequel

No, it's not a "Sunset" sequel

Twelve years since first deciding he’d like to do a film on the subject, Director Tony Scott [“True Romance”] is close to getting his wish to turn the Clifford Irving novel “Tom Mix and Pancho Villa” into an epic-sized film, says Variety. The director is in Mexico scouting locations for the story of an idealistic actor who leaves the comforts of Texas to join up with a revolutionary who would not embrace modern technology, even when the government was conscripting German fighter planes to bomb him and tanks to blast his armies. Intermedia is mobilizing the more than $100 million film for a fall 2004 production start, pending cast, financing and the imminent delivery of a script rewrite by Steve Zaillian, who is reworking his own draft. "This is ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ meets ‘The Wild Bunch,’ a huge film with trains, cavalry, thousands of soldiers in uniform and on horseback," Scott told Variety. "This is a love story between two men from different planets, who educated each other. Pancho Villa knew the laws of life, and Tom Mix knew how to live in a modernized Western world."
