Sergio Leone’s western is getting a remake

A remake of the cult western “A Fistful of Dollars,” directed by Sergio Leone and starring Clint Eastwood, is in the works.

A great classic of the genre. Released in 1964, Sergio Leone’s spaghetti western, “A Fistful of Dollars”, which revealed Clint Eastwood to the general public, is going to be entitled to a remake, knowing that the film is already an unofficial remake of the Japanese film “Yojimbo”, directed by Akira Kurosawa (1961).

As reported by Deadline, the project is being supervised by Italian Gianni Nunnari, producer of “300,” American producer Simon Horsman, and Jolly Film, which produced “A Fistful of Dollars,” with music by Italian maestro Ennio Morricone.

The name of the director, the composition of the cast, as well as the release date of this remake have not yet been revealed.

Two rival gangs

For the record, “A Fistful of Dollars”, which shook up the codes of the traditional Hollywood western, is the first part of “The Dollar Trilogy”, a saga also including “For a Few Dollars More” (1965) and “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966)”.

The story of this Italian western takes place in San Miguel, south of the US-Mexico border, where two rival gangs, the Baxters, arms traffickers, and the Rojos, who smuggle alcohol, compete for supremacy in the town. Until the day when a mysterious cowboy, “the man with no name” (Clint Eastwood), dressed in a poncho, arrives on the back of a mule and insinuates himself between the two families to take advantage and destroy them.
