A friend is reading Michael Crichton's Dragon Teeth, which I knew little about, and the plot summary caught my attention.

Set in the American West in 1876 during the Bone Wars, a period of fervent competition for fossil hunting between two real-life paleontologists noted for their intense rivalry, the plot follows a Yale student who works during the summer alternately for the two paleontologists.
Sounds like a western version of The Prestige mixed with some Indiana Jones and Lost City of Z perhaps. If Nolan were to do a western, this kinda genre defying, thriller take on it would be cool imo.
