Crazy Acquisitions: Wild Guns

Television News

By our guest blogger, Nick Hanover

Hey, kids! Do you hate your history teacher? Is it because everything teach tells you is just so boringly devoid of crazy partnerships and/or cryptozoological monsters and folkloric terrors? Then you're in luck! WB has gallantly stepped in to answer your prayers with Wild Guns, a film that Heat Vision happily reports has "shades of Tombstone and Sherlock Holmes," two properties that I know we've all impatiently waiting to be united.

Wild Guns features real-life BFF's Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday, who were kind of like the original zany buddy cops. What's less accurate is the film's plot, which is said to center on the efforts by the duo to save Sitting Bull's daughter from a "powerful Shaman with mysterious powers who is terrorizing the Western plains." Or at least that's not exactly how I remember learning about that particular era of American history.

The good news is that John Ridley is connected to this project. The bad news is that he's only on board as a producer. The even worse news is that Wild Guns is the second script from a young scribe named T.S. Nowlin. His first script was what, you ask? Ah, that'd be the Christopher Columbus film McG is now attached to. You know, after he finishes bringing about the apocalypse with Ouija: The Reckoning. (I made up that last part of the title there but feel free to contact me about rights, McG).
