Hollywood superstar Morgan Freeman has revealed that he will not be bringing his movie career to an end till he has made his 'definitive Western'.
The Million Dollar Baby star said that among the few things he still wanted to do, was a movie about a deputy US marshall in the mid 1870s.
"There are two or three things I still want to do. One is my definitive Western. It's the true story of a deputy US marshall in the mid 1870s. This guy's name was Bass Reeves and he was a true character," Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.
"No one knows about the law officers who populated the West - the deputy sheriffs, deputy marshalls and people of that ilk who were in Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas," he added.
Freeman revealed that though the Western had been in the pipeline for a long time, it had been held up because of the lack of a script.
"It's been in the pipeline for years and it's something I really want to do, but we have a problem getting the script together," he said.
