"Jeremy Renner must have had a positive working experience with writer-director Taylor Sheridan on the neo-western Wind River because the two might be reteaming. I spoke to Renner last week for the film, and during our conversation, he told me that he and Sheridan might work together on a Doc Holliday limited series saying

"Yeah. And then Taylor and I are talking about doing a cable limited series of the origin story of Doc Holliday."

When the story was first reported back in May that Renner might do a Doc Holliday project, it looked like it would be a film adaptation of two Mary Doria Russell novels, Doc and Epitaph: A Novel of the O.K. Corral. For those unfamiliar with Holliday, he started out as a dentist in Atlanta, but eventually went West to ease his tuberculous symptoms. He later became friends with Wyatt Earp and was involved in the shootout at the O.K. Corral. He was played by Dennis Quaid in Wyatt Earp, Val Kilmer in Tombstone, and Kirk Douglas in Gunfight at the O.K. Corral…"

And by Jason Robards in "Hour of the Gun", which, IMO, is as good as any version of the Clanton/Earp conflict before "Tombstone".

And by the totally unrealistic Victor Mature, whom I otherwise like, in "Darling Clementine."
