Writer Jay Cocks who wrote “Gangs of new York” was asked by Bob Dylan to write a script of his legendary song “Brownsville Girl” from the Knocked Out Loaded album. It was co-written by Sam Shepard if you remember.
Sounds like this could be an awesome western film. Supposedly “Crazy Heart” director Scott Cooper has been approached to direct with Brad Pitt asked to star as Henry Porter.
This sounds like it could be one of the better movies to come out if it gets green lit.
