Butch Cassidy Sequel Filming in Bolivia; No 'Kid'

Wednesday, 24 Mar 2010 08:57 AM

The 1969 movie classic "Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid" ends with neither of the famous outlaws appearing to survive a 1908 shootout with Bolivian soldiers.

But Butch at least will ride again in a film entitled "Blackthorn" that begins shooting in Bolivia next month.

American actor and playwright Sam Shepard plays the real-life Robert LeRoy Parker, who led the Hole in the Wall Gang.

Cesar Perez is the director of Bolivia's national cinema council. He said Tuesday that Spaniard Mateo Gil is directing the story of Cassidy's attempt to return to the United States.

Gil is known for his screenplay of "The Sea Inside."

The new film plot has Cassidy feeling compelled to commit just one more robbery before he can retire.
