KISS THE GIRLS star MORGAN FREEMAN has a new sort of Western in mind - he wants to make a movie about a black deputy Marshall from the late 1800s.
The UNDER SUSPISCION actor is passionate about the project, and has even sunk his own money into trying to get it off the ground.
He says, "I've had the idea since 1993. "BASS REEVES was a black marshall in the Wild West. Watch almost any western and you would think that the only people around at time were white."
Although he has had a few scripts for the film written, Morgan says, "I don't like any of them. I guess it's because I have my own idea of how it should go."
