Re: Cowboys for Christ

Just read the same news on the BBC website. What a huge disappointment! The production company really let everybody down. How could they book locations, extras etc. and not have the money ready ? They planned the filming for many month. What went wrong?

If indeed postponed once again, I hope Mr. Lee isn't too late to sign up immediately for "The Vij" oder "Triage". And Tim Burton is filming "Alice in Wonderland" in London this May, so I'm sure we will also hear some good news pretty soon.

Re: Cowboys for Christ

The BBC does not tell the whole story. Filming has NOT been cancelled. What has been cancelled is the filming at one location.

Re: Cowboys for Christ

So what's the real deal Juan ? Is filming about to start and, if so, where.
I'm sure you can understand the dissapointment out there.
This is one film I would dearly love to see finished as, unlike most recent projects, it would afford a starring role to Mr Lee .
Something almost unheard of for an actor of his age.
I'll be keeping my fingers crossed but an update would be much appreciatted.

Re: Cowboys for Christ

Erg...I just got an e-mail from the head of Flixstir (the movie community website) saying:

Thanks for the suggestion! We've added this to our database
Cowboys For Christ - Movie Reviews, Photos & Videos, Layouts & Wallpapers, Fan Club - Flixster

Enjoy the site!

I don't want this to be in vain. It took the poor fellow a while to create that page lol. :s:

I will keep fingers, toes and other appendages crossed that someone will have the decency to finance this film...perhaps a major studio even? The film seems quite bankable to me and with Mr. Lee and Mr. Hardy on board (plus now Mr. Weasly and Ms. Collins) I'd think that someone would want to make this film. :dontknow:

Re: Cowboys for Christ

Re: Cowboys for Christ

Its a shame, sincce you very rarely see actors in their 80s get starring roles, let alone lead roles. They are relegated to minor parts and cameos(see Brando, marlon and Dee, Ruby) Althuough Dee did get nominated for an Oscar.

Re: Cowboys for Christ

Well, the Hollywood Reporter and Cinema Retro are reporting that Cowboys is filming now, and that once it is completed Mr Lee will be joining the production of Triage. Is this true?

Re: Cowboys for Christ

If would help if you post a link to those reports because you may have misread. Mr. Lee is right now working on Triage and will be unavailable for a minimun of 2 months.

Maybe its the other way around.

The article is here:

Quote:
Filming starts next week, but Lee will be joining the company later as he has just started production on another major film in Scotland. Sources say the film is titled Cowboys for Christ and is said to be a long-awaited reimagining of the classic 1973 movie The Wicker Man.

The information is mistaken, Mr. Lee is not scheduled to do any work in Cowboys for Christ at the moment.

Re: Cowboys for Christ

It will be awesome when this is finished. A friend of mine from Oklahoma wears a belt that says Cowboys for Christ. He told me that it's like a rodeo where people have faith in the theme as well as people who are willing to help others to faith. It helps everyone to know God more. So it is neat to figure it out because I told him what Mr. Lee is doing about making this film. He told me to let them know that he and his family and friends are praying to make sure that everything goes well. God will lead the way during this film. He explain this as well. So God bless ya'll as well. From all of us country cowboys-girls who serve Christ.
