According to the AP, the film, titled 'Blackthorn,' will begin shooting next month in Bolivia, with playwright and actor Sam Shepard starring as he leader of the Hole in the Wall Gang.

The plot has Cassidy (aka Robert LeRoy Parker) planning one last heist before retiring.

If the plot sounds at all confusing, you're not alone. In the final action sequence of the true-life, Oscar-winning western from 1969, rascally outlaws Sundance (Robert Redford) and Butch (Paul Newman) were gunned down rather convincingly in a barrage of Bolivian policemen's bullets. How Cassidy survived the gundown remains to be seen.

Mateo Gil ('The Sea Inside') will direct the film. No word yet on whether the ghosts of Jesse James or Billy the Kid will make cameos.
