India -- A Cowboy Movie in Tamil!

Here's what an Indian online publication,, calls a first look at a cowboy film being shot in the Tamil language. It's the third film for a young director named Chimbudevan, and his first western.

The last cowboy film in Tamil was made 36 years ago -- Jai shankar's black and white film titled Ganga.

The story of Irumbukkottai Murattu Singam takes place in the 18th century. Filming will start in Kerala [Images] where a gigantic village set has been built by art director Muthuraj. After that, shooting will move to Thenkasi, Thada, and Madhya Pradesh [Images].
