“Butch Cassidy’s Forgotten Outlaw”

Currently in preproduction, the ‘Old West’ feature “Butch Cassidy’s Forgotten Outlaw”, is written and directed by Nik Tizekker, starring  RJ Mitte, Lesley Ann Warren, Lorenzo Lamas, Cathy Moriarty, Costas Mandylor, John Schneider, Aaron Schwartz, James Duval,  Eric Nelsen  and Hudson West

“…during the late 1800’s, ‘Bub Meek’ helplessly watches his best friend ‘Robert LeRoy Parker’  aka ‘Butch Cassidy’, rise to infamy as a butcher, thief, robber, cattle rustler, bank, train robber and the leader of a gang of criminal outlaws known as the ‘Wild Bunch’.

“Parker engaged in criminal activity for more than a decade at the end of the 19th century and the early 20th century, but the pressures of being pursued by law enforcement, notably the ‘Pinkerton’ detective agency, forced him to flee the US with his partner in crime, ‘Harry Longabaugh’, aka the ‘Sundance Kid’, and ‘Etta Place’. 

“The trio traveled first to Argentina and then to Bolivia, where Parker and Longabaugh were killed in a shootout with the ‘Bolivian Army’  November 1908.”
