Rights landed to Charles Leerhsen’s book Butch Cassidy: The True Story of an American Outlaw.

The Hollywood Reporter broke an exclusive today, revealing that following a multiple-outlet bidding war, Scott Steindorff and Dylan Russell’s Stone Village Television has landed rights to author Charles Leerhsen’s book Butch Cassidy: The True Story of an American Outlaw.

“Stone Village plans to self-finance the development through Latin American and European sources and possibly production before shopping the premium limited series to cable networks and streamers. The plan is to produce the series to target an international audience, specifically the Latin American market. The story will follow Butch and Sundance across the U.S. and into Latin America, ending in Bolivia.”

Scott Stendorff of Stone Village Television explained the story’s importance to Latin American audiences.

“Much of the book and the adventures of The Sundance Kid (Cassidy’s partner Harry Longabaugh) and the ‘Wild Bunch’ gang takes place in South America. During that time period, Butch Cassidy and his gang were more well-known there than in North America. This isn’t just an American Western story, but a Latin American story, and it needs to be told. There are so many aspects of this story that will excite the audiences of today.”
