Ritchie Takes On The Civil War

GUY RITCHIE is looking to bounce back from the disappointment of SWEPT AWAY with a film about America's Civil War.

The movie maker has decided to ditch plans to make a new movie called REVOLVER, and instead he's onboard to direct Civil War heist comedy SIX SHOOTERS, which will begin in March (04).

The SNATCH star's new project is reportedly a film in the vein of western epic BUTCH CASSIDY + THE SUNDANCE KID.

Meanwhile, Ritchie will temporarily halt production on Revolver, a Las Vegas swindle project, until after he completes his Civil War film.

It is not known if his wife MADONNA will have a part in Six Shooters.
