Steve McQueen's Dream: "Yucatan"

The NY Times reports that when Steve McQueen died, he "left behind two custom-made trunks containing 16 leather-bound notebooks full of drawings, photographs from period magazines, and a detailed script continuity — a screenplay without dialogue — written in a kind of hyper-stylized poetry. These materials were his plans for Yucatan, the vanity project he yearned, but failed, to make."
So when are they gonna make the movie? "So far, the producers said, at least two of Hollywood's top stars — whom they declined to identify publicly — have read the journals and are circling the project. And it's easy to imagine directors sparking to the material, though no filmmaker or star has become attached while the script work goes on."

Well, in honor of Steve McQueen's dream movie, I give you the old ad that is an updated version of "Field of Dreams."
