BLACKTHORN

Picking up where George Roy Hill's BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID left off, director Mateo Gil (screenwriter, OPEN YOUR EYES, THE SEA INSIDE) imagines that the duo managed to escape their standoff with the Bolivian army in 1908 and live into old age, Sundance returning to the US and Butch staying in Bolivia, living quietly in a remote village as James Blackthorn (Sam Shepard), kept company by his Quechua lover Yana (Magaly Solier). Twenty years on, Blackthorn decides it's time to return to the US, but his trip is derailed by a mysterious Spaniard (Eduardo Noriega) offering a job too good to pass up. Official Selection, 2011 Tribeca Film Festival.
