Film to look at OK Corral gunfight from viewpoints besides Earps'

  • Updated

A movie scheduled to be shot in May at Old Tucson Studios held auditions Saturday at the University of Arizona.

“Tombstone Rashomon,” the next film by director Alex Cox (“Repo Man,” “Sid & Nancy”), will examine the gunfight at the OK Corral from a variety of viewpoints, similar to the Akira Kurosawa classic “Rashomon.”

“For the first time, a film about this subject shows the perspectives of not only the supposedly heroic Earps, but men and women from various viewpoints of the conflict,” the filmmakers said in a news release.

The low-budget independent production was looking for actors of all races and ethnicities to fill the roles of Colonel Roderick Hafford, Kate Horoney, Johnny Behan, Wyatt Earp, Ike Clanton and Doc Holliday, said casting director Travis Mills, Arizona-based director and CEO of Running Wild Films.

Students from the University of Arizona and graduates of the Colorado University Boulder Film Program will fill out the crew of the film.
