Wolf Johnson: A legend Written in Gunsmoke Film Pitch

In 1870 Arizona an aging gunman finds a young girl Annie Dugan, age twelve in the desert after her parents have been killed by The Brothers, a vicious gang of three half brothers. Never known to leave anyone alive, Wolf Johnson vows to protect the girl. When the brothers realize the girl might still be alive, they set out to correct their mistake. Only Wolf stands between the killers and the orphaned girl child.

Years later Annie has grown into a lovely young woman and Wolf has taught her how to survive on the frontier. At a gathering, she overhears three men discussing the brothers and how their bones had been found by the law. Annie is outraged that the three men idolize the outlaws that had killed her parents. When Dan Kelly draws on her, Annie is faster and her two friends Black Hawk and Windy Adams kill the other two men. When Donald Kelly owner of the Shamrock K, hears that a woman had killed his son he is outraged. A longtime enemy of Wolf Johnson, he gathers ten riders and vows to kill the woman and Wolf Johnson.

At the gathering, a gambler recognized Black Hawk as a runaway slave owned by Jasper Collins of New Orleans. Six months later, he calls on Jasper Collins and tells him where his slave Joseph is and that he calls himself Black Hawk. Jasper hires two bounty hunters to gather some men and capture or kill Black Hawk. At the next gathering, Wolf is away so Annie goes with Black Hawk and Windy Adams. When Black Hawk is tipped off about a ruff looking man who has been asking questions about him, he is sure his former owner is behind it. He leaves Annie and Windy at the gathering hopping they can mislead the bounty hunter. When Sam Hooker’s partner Tater Barlow arrives with reinforcements, Annie overhears their plans. She and Windy leave the gathering before the bounty hunters, but are overtaken and Windy is killed by Tater Barlow. When Wolf arrivers at the gathering and hears that Windy has been killed and Annie and his friend Black Hawk are in danger, he sets out on the vengeance trail. Annie has been forced to lead the bounty hunters after Black Hawk to avoid her rape and murder. As the killers before them, they have underestimated the man known as Wolf Johnson. When Wolf and Black Hawk take on the bounty hunters, the end will be written in blood and gunsmoke.

Pagan Moon Productions owns the copyright on the screenplay and the book it is based on. We are it Tucson Arizona and have the terrain, actors and western towns to make this film. We are looking for a distributor who can advance production money for distributing rights.
