Randall Wallace has a love of strong, heroic and heartwarming stories. He was nominated for an Academy Award for his screenplay of Braveheart, and he wrote and directed We Were Soldiers and directed Secretariat.

Vince Vaughn will star in Gunslingers, based on a Wallace script. This story involves several “iconic Western archetypes and/or character figures.” Since it takes place in Los Angeles, we wonder if the story will feature outlaw-lawman Wyatt Earp.
