O’s 2012 celebration of the tenth anniversary of the film Cocaine Cowboys by the local filmmaking company Rakontur also stands out as a favorite event.
"We have a really amazing relationship with the Rakontur guys — Billy [Corben], Alfred [Spellman], and David [Cypkin]. They’re like extended family for us," Tabsch says. "The reunion we had, with Edna Buchanan and Mickey Munday, that was actually the first time all those people had ever been in the same room. What’s special about that for me is we’re celebrating Miami homegrown talent… Plus, it’s the amazing people. Edna Buchanan is a fucking legend. I was totally like a fanboy."
To answer one of the questions we get asked most often, yes, there will be a third Cocaine Cowboys documentary. It won’t be CC3 — the working title is Cocaine Cowboys: Los Muchachos.
We’ve been shooting interviews for it over the past couple of years and we recently started post-production. Sam Rega, who edited Limelight and is finishing Dawg Fight, has been working with Billy and Dave to assemble a cut.
