We have enough cowboys to make a western

Surely this is the ideal time for this great country of ours to develop a film industry focusing primarily on the western.
We have ghost towns aplenty, outlaws galore, no shortage of cowboys, abundant cattle, horses and piebalds, vulnerable banks awash with IMF money, the Cowen/Lenihan gang holed up in Leister House and a mean looking sheriff in US Marshal Chopra, recently arrived to clean up the town.
Perhaps the main theme of one such film would be that the two Brians do a 'Butch and Sundance' and relocate to Bolivia.
