What if we told you that the premise surrounding this film was based upon the idea that Butch Cassidy actually survived the bloody shoot out with the Bolivian army in 1908 and went on to live to a good ole’ age.
Yes Hollywood is that desperate for ideas. Blackthorn, starring the always watchable Sam Shepard tells the story of Cassidy quietly living out his years under the name James Blackthorn in a secluded Bolivian village. 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.
What next? Titanic: The War Years? A film where the world famous ship missed the iceberg and didn’t sink, but instead went on to house the wounded and ferry soldiers to and from the battlefield during World War I.
