Western feature film about school aged girls being forced to drive 2000 head of cattle hundreds of miles to save the school.
The Cowgirls is a western about a group of school girls forced to take on the roles traditionally left for men, when their ranch is threatened with financial ruin after the tragic death of the rancher. Seizing on the tragedy a local banker and the old ranch hands join forces to force the property into foreclosure thinking that if they refuse to drive the cattle to the annual auction that the wife of the deceased rancher would be forced to default on the loan. They never counted on this cowgirls tenacity and the support of the dozen teenage pupils she has been caring for since they were left on her doorstep during the civil war.
Using the sets, crew, and locations that have made New Mexico one of the leading film states in the country we plan to make a western that would make John Wayne proud. Because New Mexico is such a forward thinking state as far as film production there is a billion dollars in film infrastructure ready to take our modest budget and shoot a film that experts would place valued at millions of dollars. We have great talent attached and the support of a great directing team. Cast attached: Claudia Christian (Babylon 5), Kelly Lintz, (Hunger Games, Army Wives), Mackenzie Lintz (Hunger Games), Madison Lintz (Sofia from Walking Dead), Bokeem Woodbine (Total Recall, The Rock), Franco Vega (Social Network), Noel G (Dark Knight Returns), and many others.
I am producing this film. Jim Burleson is my name. I have been in film in this state since 2006.
Also Producing this film Stephen Milburn Anderson (South Central, Cash)
