Col, Mark spark to spec on Civil War heist

Union soldiers plan gold grab in Enborn actioner

Columbia and producer Laurence Mark made a preemptive high-six figure against seven-figure buy of “Six Shooters,” a spec script by John Enbom that is described as “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” set in the backdrop of the Civil War.

The action adventure takes place in the waning days of the war, when Confederate prexy Jefferson Davis loaded the entire gold reserves of the the South aboard trains during the siege of Richmond to keep them from falling into the wrong hands. A couple of Union soldiers are bent on making off with the gold.

The film will be produced by Mark, Dan Etheridge, Jason Bloom and Jonathan King. Col production prexy Peter Schlessel made the deal and Matt Tolmach and Rachel O’Connor shepherding the film for the studio.

Col got an early look at the material from Enbom’s CAA reps because of the scribe’s relationship with King, who is production prexy of Laurence Mark Prods. King produced the indie film “Starstruck,” which Enbom wrote and directed in 1999. Enbom wrote the script based on a story by Etheridge and Bloom.
