MORGAN FREEMAN’s dreams of portraying 1870s Deputy U.S. Marshal BASS REEVES have been dashed, because he’s too old.
The veteran movie star is developing a project about his Arkansas hero, but admits time has run out on him playing the lead.
He says, “In all of American history, you’ve probably never heard of him but there he was and I wanted to be him.
“That’s why I formed a film company, so I could do it (film) myself, but now we’ve sort of got it (film) set up but I can’t play him.”
