Poirier Pens “Gunsmoke” Film Reboot

The classic western TV series “Gunsmoke” is being rebooted as a feature for CBS Films says Risky Biz Blog.

Gregory Poirier (“National Treasure: Book of Secrets”) has almost finished the first draft of the script which re-imagines 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. Craig Baumgarten will produce.
