    Blackthorn (2011) Movie Review | BeyondHollywood.com

    “Blackthorn” is getting a limited theatrical run in the States on October 7, 2011, but is currently available for rental on VOD. It’s an excellent Western, with some nice, great chase sequences that owes (purposefully, would be my guess) more than a little to the George Roy Hill movie. The film’s signature sequence is, without a doubt, the methodical, deadly chase across the Bolivian Salt Flats. Though Blackthorn’s early visit to a bank ranks a close second, especially when you think that maybe, just maybe, ol Butch might pull out a sidearm and rob the place. He doesn’t, of course, but it’s great to think that he probably could — and get away with it, too.

    If you've got an hour, this looks like an interesting read.

    Euphoria and Liberating Laughter: The Cinema of Sergio Leone -- Projectorhead_Magazine

    Leone, like Kurosawa, was one of the first truly international filmmakers. I mean by this that he took the classic forms and genres of American cinema – the Western, the male buddy saga, the gangster movie – and he refashioned and reinvigorated them, often in cheeky, sardonic ways. And Leone’s revolution impacted on America’s own New Wave of the ‘60s: the Movie Brats such as Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese and Philip Kaufman who emulated Leone’s irreverence towards tradition and his willingness to experiment. This what critics including Bill Krohn in America and NoŽl Simsolo in France call the ‘boomerang effect’ of Leone’s films of the ‘60s – the way in which they took off from American cinema and then returned to it, in the process transforming it.1

    Review: ‘Blackthorn’ Catches Up With A Retirement-Ready Butch Cassidy > The Playlist

    But “Blackthorn” can’t live up to Butch Cassidy, and while the man himself will continue to live on years after his death, Gil’s film will peacefully but forgettably ride off into the sunset. [C]

    Akiva Goldsman Sets Up Western Drama About Doc Holliday AT HBO With Ron Howard Attached To Direct Pilot | Filmmakers, Film Industry, Film Festivals, Awards & Movie Reviews | indieWIRE

    Deadline reports that Goldsman has set up a western series at HBO centered around Doc Holliday, based on the novel "Doc" by Mary Doria Russell. The project will slightly tweak big screen versions of Holiday we've seen in the past, portraying the tubercular man as an ailing dentist who enters the gun slinging ways of the wild west as he becomes sicker. So, like a ten gallon hat version of "Breaking Bad" then? The story will also focus on the love triangle between Holliday, Kate Elder (his prostitute wife) and his best bud Wyatt Earp. Hot.

    Adam Cooper and Bill Collage ("Accpeted") are penning the script, and Ron Howard is attached to direct the pilot for the project, which has brought together a bunch of family members. Ron's mom and dad, Rance Howard and Judy Howard are serving as co-producers, particularly as the former has a "fascination" with Holliday. Though initially conceived as a mini-series, HBO wants it as a brand new show. The network's last stab at a western was the late, great and sorely missed "Deadwood," so this will have some very big shoes to fill.

    No word yet on when it will go, but with Ron Howard just gearing up to shoot "Rush," they will have to wait until that movie wraps up if they want him for the pilot episode. So we're looking at end of 2012 at the earliest for production to even start.
