Harrison Ford will portray Wyatt Earp in Black Hats
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
It looks like Harrison Ford has picked his next project currently entitled BLACK HATS, which is based on the novel Black Hats: A Novel of Wyatt Earp and Al Capone by Patrick Culhane. Yes, you read that right. In this story Wyatt Earp is in his 70’s and working as a private investigator in Los Angeles. He is hired by the widow of his deceased friend Doc Holliday to help out her son John who lives in New York and is having a rough time with the gangster Al Capone. The script is being written by Kurt Johnstad (who gave us 300) and I have to say it sounds pretty interesting right now, though we’ll see who else signs on.
You can catch Harrison Ford in his upcoming western flick COWBOYS & ALIENS which opens up this coming weekend and co-stars: Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde, Abigail Spencer and Sam Rockwell. COWBOYS & ALIENS is directed by Jon Favreau.
