Cult filmmaker Monte Hellman is set to direct "Desperadoes," based on the novel of the same name by Ron Hansen about the infamous Dalton gang. Joyce Wethington's Jammee Rose Prods. is producing, while Paul Thomas Anderson and Martin Scorsese are exec producers.

Scribe Charles Eastman is adapting "Desperadoes," which revolves around the exploits of the Dalton gang and the beautiful Eugenia Moore, who fell in love with Bob Dalton and helped the brothers rob trains, either directly or by distracting the local marshal.

Film is skedded to begin lensing this fall in Alberta. Casting has not been set.

Wethington is in talks to partner with Canada's Voice Pictures on "Desperadoes."

Hellman recently completed shooting one of four segments of "Trapped Ashes," a horror-supernatural anthology penned by Dennis Bartok. Hellman also is shooting the wraparound. He was most prolific in the 1960s and '70s, helming "Two-Lane Blacktop," "Cockfighter" and "The Greatest."


Hellman making stuff again, and Paul boring.
