Six Shooters: According to Variety, George Tillman Jr. is in talks to direct Six Shooters for producer Laurence Mark at Columbia.
Action adventure picture is based on a spec script by John Enbom. The story takes place in the waning days of the Civil War, when Confederate prexy Jefferson Davis loaded the entire gold reserves of the South aboard trains during the siege of Richmond to keep them from falling into the wrong hands. A couple of Union soldiers are bent on making off with the gold.
Guy Ritchie was originally set to direct Six Shooters but opted for action-drama Revolver, starring Ray Liotta and Jason Statham. Revolver, which began lensing last month, is produced by Luc Besson and Marty Katz.
