Bill “Hopalong” Cassidy Gets A Resurrection
— Posted by Rodney
The hundred plus year old Cassidy is set to ride anew! We get news of this coyboy’ s return thanks to our friends at comingsoon:
Producer Mark Canton (300) is teaming with Pterodactyl Productions on a pair of big screen projects that include a film about iconic cowboy character and B-movie Western staple Bill “Hopalong” Cassidy, says The Hollywood Reporter.
I didn’t know that Hopalong was the first image on a lunch box. I’m sure that questions waiting for me somewhere on a Trivial Pursuit card; and now the answer is mine!
I dislike most remakes, but this character seems to have been re-invented so many times that it’s part of his nature. Cassidy’s like Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny, but is in desperate need of a reintroduction to this generation; soon his return will come, and may it be triumphant!
I hope in this incarnation Bill Cassidy returns to his “rough-talking galoot” days. I know very little about this character, but I’m all for a film about a galoot. I also love that the backers call themselves Pterodactyl Productions. Putting a dinosaur into your business name will get respect out of me every time.
