The first trailer for the Sam Shepard (“The Right Stuff”, “Steel Magnolias”, “The Notebook”) starring sequel to “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”, “Blackthorn” – with Shepard in the role made famous by Paul Newman in George Roy Hill’s classic ’60s western – is online.

When this project was first announced a couple of years back I wondered whether the final product would play as cheap as the synopsis at the time did; my fears have been quashed with this trailer.

Here’s the synopsis, followed by the trailer :

It’s been said (but unsubstantiated) that Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid were killed in a standoff with the Bolivian military in 1908. In BLACKTHORN, Cassidy (Shepard) survived, and is quietly living out his years under the name James Blackthorn in a secluded Bolivian village. Tired of his long exile from the US and hoping to see his family again before he dies, Cassidy sets out on the long journey home. But when an unexpected encounter with an ambitious young criminal (Eduardo Noriega) derails his plans, he is thrust into one last adventure, the likes of which he hasn’t experienced since his glory days with the Sundance Kid.
