EXCLUSIVE: New Regency has paid high six-figures for Gunslingers, a pitch that Braveheart scribe Randall Wallace will write for Vince Vaughn to star. Vaughn will produce through his Wild West Picture Show Productions banner with Victoria Vaughn exec producing. Wallace is also a producer along with New Regency. Michael Lagnese from WWPS is associate producer.
They are keeping the log line under wraps, but here is what I know: It’s an action adventure set in modern-day Los Angeles, where heroic and iconic characters from the past collide with contemporary urban reality. It’s a movie that explores what real heroism is in a fun and unexpected way. It’s also a two-hander.
Vaughn will next be seen in The Watch, the Fox comedy that opens July 27, and the Stephen Frears-directed Lay The Favorite. He re-teams with Wedding Crasher star Owen Wilson in the Shawn Levy-directed The Internship. Wallace most recently directed Secretariat and is attached to The Conscientious Objector. He’s repped by WME and Media Talent Group’s Geyer Kosinski, while Vaughn is repped by CAA.
