Harrison Ford, next in “Cowboys & Aliens”, will keep the on for “Black Hats”, a in which the actor will play legendary gunslinger Wyatt Earp.
Kurt Johnstad (currently rewriting “Man of Steel”, “300”) is adapting the Max Collins novel for the big screen, says Heat Vision. Producing the film are Thunder Road’s Basil Iwanyk and Jason Netter of Kickstart Productions.
And how cool does the story sound? Here’s what the trade says of it :
Black Hats blends fact with fiction in its telling of the story involving an older Earp, the one who spent his last years as a private detective and movie consultant in Los Angeles. The spin involves Earp learning that his friend and compatriot Doc Holliday had a son, now living in Prohibition-era New York City. While Holliday is long dead, the son has gotten himself in trouble with a rising mobster, Al Capone.
Earp teams up with Bat Masterson, one of his former deputies and now noted sportswriter for the New York Morning Telegraph, to take on the gang in what becomes a tale of six-shooters versus tommy guns.
Apparently Iwanyk, a producer on “Clash of the Titans” and it’s upcoming sequel, approached Ford with the idea and the actor immediately sparked to the idea of playing an old-school gunslinger who rides into 1920’s New York.
