    Lonesome Dove

    I just found out today that they are currently filming one of the prequels to Lonesome Dove ... Comanche Moon.

    Simon Wincer is directing (Lonesome Dove, Quigly down under, Crossfire Trail) and the author of the book, Larry McMurtry is doing the screenplay.

    I'm a huge fan .. loved the book .. and I can't wait!

    they had a short lived t.v. series at one time called Lonesome Dove: the Outlaw Years that I enjoyed while it was on, but I have never seen it again on re-runs. It wasn't as good as the movie but entertaining. I'll be looking forward to Comanche Moon.

    I'm a big "Lonesome Dove" fan.
    Read all the books:
    "Dead Man's Walk"; "Comanche Moon"; "Lonesome Dove"; "Streets of Laredo"

    to Gunsavey: I don't see how Robert Duvall could star in "Comanche Moon", as it takes place when Call and McCrae are much younger men than they were in "Lonesome Dove".
    "Streets of Laredo" takes place after "Lonesome Dove", but Gus McCrae is already gone by then.

    This is good news for me! Seems like about the only movies I watch more than once anymore are westerns. Will be looking forward to this one.

    Steve Zahn will play Gus McCrae;
    Karl Urban will play Woodrow Call;
