Watch: Official Trailer for Mateo Gil's 'Blackthorn' with Sam Shepard
A living legend, a final adventure, an epic journey home. Magnolia Pictures recently debuted this official trailer on Apple (tip to TFS) for Spanish filmmaker Mateo Gil's new western Blackthorn, which stars Sam Shepard as the legendary Butch Cassidy in his "final" adventure. The cast also includes Eduardo Noriega, Stephen Rea, Magaly Solier. It's been said (but unsubstantiated) that Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid were killed in a standoff with the Bolivian military in 1908 - this is that story. It actually looks pretty damn good, I'm not sure where it came from, but check out the trailer. "You're a damn legend, and here you are!"

In Bolivia, Butch Cassidy (who's now calling himself James Blackthorne) pines for one last sight of home, an adventure that aligns him with a young robber and makes the duo a target for gangs & lawmen alike.
Blackthorn is directed by Spanish filmmaker Mateo Gil (interview here), of Nobody Knows Anybody, and co-writer on Alejandro Amenábar's Agora, as well as numerous shorts previously. The script was written by Miguel Barros. This first premiered at the La Palmas and Tribeca Film Festivals this year. Magnolia Pictures is releasing Blackthorn in limited theaters starting October 7th this fall. Visit the film's official Facebook.
