Harrison Ford as Wyatt Earp

Harrison Ford apparently likes his boots and saddles, because, following Cowboys & Aliens, Ford intends to play the 70-year-old Wyatt Earp in the movie Black Hats, based on the novel by renowned Mystery writer Max Allan Collins (writing as Patrick Culhane).

The story has Earp coming to New York City to aid Doc Holliday’s son Johnny, who has run afoul of a young Al Capone and other gangsters in the early 1920s. Earp naturally teams up with his old Kansas deputy, Bat Masterson, who is working in New York as a sportswriter for The New York Morning Telegraph. A lot of top talent is involved with this project.
