GUNSMOKE wrangles up a movie!


"CBS Films is developing a feature reboot of 'Gunsmoke' and has hired National Treasure: Book of Secrets writer Gregory Poirier to pen the screenplay.

Craig Baumgarten (Shattered Glass, Never Back Down) will produce the new take.

The action-adventure will re-imagine Marshal Matt Dillon, the hero of the classic Western, for modern audiences. The story will be set in the same American West as the original but will feature a contemporary look and modern action twists.

Poirier is said to be close to completing a first draft of the script."

Well, my parents and grandparents will be happy to hear this!

Here's the original Gunsmoke opening:
