Harrison Ford Finds Black Hats
He's playing Wyatt Earp!

Harrison Ford Finds Black Hats

Looks like playing Colonel Dolarhyde in Cowboys & Aliens has given Harrison Ford the bug to keep saddling up and slapping on a hat, so he’s signed to play Wyatt Earp in Black Hats.

This one, though, will likely feature a lot less riding and a lot more scowling. Hats will be adapted from Road to Perdition source material writer Max Allan Collins’ novel, which merges fact and fiction for a story of an older Earp, who worked as a private eye and film consultant in LA. That part is true. The invented element will see him discovering that old mucker Doc Holliday had a son, died in New York and now the lad is in trouble with Al Capone.

So, naturally figuring that he has to help him out, Earp recruits former deputy Bat Masterson – who is now a noted sports writer – to take on Capone’s gang in a battle of Tommy guns versus six-shooters.

Kurt Johnstad, who worked with Zack Snyder on 300, is scribbling the sequel Battle of Artemisia and was recently hired to help polish the Man of Steel script, will work from the book, which Collins wrote under a pseudonym in 2007. There’s no word on a director yet, but Harrison Ford battling gangsters? We’ll take that!

nice
well, what did you expect?! But c'mon, what's not to like? Wyatt Earp, Al Capone, hopefully hardly any needless CGI (although there's bound to be some needed for period NYC but that's just the same as matte painting, so no problems there.) Hope the rest of the cast is as good as Ford. This could really be cool. And by the way - Skull worked for me but each to their own. (and if you ever find a more dedicated Raiders fan, you'll be lucky) More

I´m with you matey, get rid of the son and the dodgy special effects make it as dark as temple of doom as fun as the last crusade and as much fun and as action packed as raiders! When the fourth film was but a pipedream I had all sorts of wonders how they would make it work with him older and in a much different time and gangsters was always one idea, anything would have been better than the crystal skull I mean it just seemed that they had so long to make it a fantastic fourth and they cou More

I'd rather see Indy tackle gangsters. More
