Drug cartel gunmen ambushed three SUVs along a dirt road, slaughtering at least six children and three women — all of them U.S. citizens living in northern Mexico — in a grisly attack that left one vehicle a burned-out, bullet-riddled hulk, authorities said Tuesday. The dead included 8-month-old twins. Eight children were found alive after escaping from the vehicles and hiding in the brush, but at least five had bullet wounds or other injuries and were taken to Tucson for treatment. The attackers apparently killed one woman, Christina Langford Johnson, after she jumped out of her vehicle and waved her hands to show she wasn't a threat, according to an account published by family members and corroborated by prosecutors and a relative in a telephone interview. A relative, Austin Cloes, says Johnson may have saved her infant daughter by placing her on the floor of the SUV. Around the ambush scene, which stretched for miles, investigators found over 200 shell casings, mostly from assault rifles. The attack took place Monday in a remote, mountainous area in northern Mexico where the Sinaloa cartel has been engaged in a turf war. The victims had set out to see relatives in Mexico; one woman was headed to the airport in Phoenix to meet her husband Utah Sen. Mitt Romney called the deaths "unthinkable' and said there are known drug cartels in the area.

"Full body” CGI will be used. A voice actor will also be brought in. "Finding Jack" begins production later this month and hits theatres next year on November 11.
