The Resurrection of Billy the Kid
HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA — In an astonishing turn of events, United Artists film makers have revealed that a new Billy the Kid movie of will begin production this July – starring newly discovered Billy the Kid’s grandson, James Tyler McCarty – in a movie that was initially planned to be a documentary!
But following recent forensic evidence and DNA tests that’conclusively identified’ McCarty is indeed “a direct descendant of “The Kid“, Producer Sergio Estafa started thinking differently.
“When we travelled to Gallveston (Texas) to interview Tyler, everything changed. We were shocked at his resemblance to Billy.”
“His jawline, those ears. It’s uncanny!” says Director Sam Westwood.
Tyler – age 30 had been raised on the ranch near Galveston and was already a working cowboy.
“Once we saw how he looked, and his cowboy skills, we started thinking about a Movie instead. You can’t fake this stuff.” says Estafa. “This kid’s legit.”
Director Westwood tested Tyler on his skills. “Tyler’s gun handling and horsemanship are exceptional. This guy’s got the pedigree.”
But what about acting?
“This is an Action Movie.” says Estafa. “We’re not going for Oscars.”
Adds Westwood. “The Kid’s already been Screen Tested. He’s as good as Arnold Schwarzenegger.”
“That’s Ongoing.” says Westwood. “Were talking to Bruce Willis and Benedict Cumberbach right now. Bruce says he always wanted to make a Western.”
The production will utilize ‘on location’ shooting as much as possible.
“But we might even use Old Tucson. Who’s gonna know?”
