Brad Pitt and Ryan Reynolds in Talks for "Gunsmoke"

Posted: February 5th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Brad Pitt and Ryan Reynolds in Talks for "Gunsmoke"Submit Comment
LA Times is reporting that CBS Films is working on a big screen adaptation of the classic Western television show "Gunsmoke" and the project is attracting some of Hollywood's top actors to play the lawman Marshal Matt Dillon.

Brad Pitt has emerged as the top contender for the gun-slinging role, with Ryan Reynolds also a candidate.

On the 1955 show, Dillon is the Western hero charged with maintaining law and order in a period Kansas town filled with colorful vagrants, misfits and desperadoes. He carries on in these adventures with the help of town physician Doc Adams and tavern owner Miss Kitty Russell.

Gregory Poirier, who wrote "National Treasure: Book of Secrets," has written a draft of the "Gunsmoke" feature script, which the studio is said to like. The goal is to contemporize the look and feel while maintaining the period American West setting.

That isn't a competition. Pitt is deciding if he wants the role. Reynold is just the backup. Who the f*ck is casting these films anyway? It ain't f*cking brain surgery Hwood!!!

I met Ken Curtis (Festus) from Gunsmoke once. Of course that was about 100 years ago (as he's been having a dirt nap since 1991)!

We could use a few more westerns. After Clint the only one to carry the torch is Costner (having made several). Sure Pitt did Legends... and Jesse. Oh my... just thought... I'll bet there's been talk about remaking Rio Bravo! Noooooooo!!!

Gunsmoke... hmmm... soon the porn industry will probably make a parody of this: d*ck-snot!

Rodeo f*cking...

Get on Miss Kitty (Megan Fox), tell her she's the ugliest man you've ever f*cked... then try to stay on for 8 seconds.

@Ranger-I would crazy-glue myself to Megan Fox...I wonder if her "fish lips" are the same size her "face lips"
Ranger writes:

I'd hot glue her to the bed sheets... without using a hot glue gun!

then as i make her a second vagina in her stomach i'd tell her how sh*tty her "acting" was.

Congrats to Ryan Reynolds though. Having his name mentioned in the same sentence as Brad Pitt shows how much he's moved up in he Biz.

Nice work!

Yeah, but Wolverine was about 5' 1" in the comics yet they hired Jackman (and he was fab. n the role).

Matt Dillon should play the title role with Robin Williams casted as Doc Patch Adams and Kerri Russell should be the tavern owner, Kitty Russel
