For a Fistful of Dollars: A Remake of Sergio Leone's Classic!

But who will take Clint Eastwood's place in the cast?

First part of the Dollar Trilogy of Sergio Leone (followed by and for a few more dollars in 1965 and The good, the bad and the ugly in 1966), For a Fistful of Dollars (1963) is a masterpiece of the spaghetti western. A monument of cinema. The first major role of Clint Eastwood. An untouchable of the 7th art… or not!

Euro Gang Entertainment, the company founded by Hollywood veteran Gianni Nunnari (300) And Simon Horsman (Dreams Magazine) is preparing a remake, with the producer Enzo Sisti (Ripley) and Rome-based Jolly Film, which was involved in the original film six decades ago…

The story follows a gunslinger wandering the Wild West who pits two rival families against each other in a town torn apart by greed.

Details of the remake are still unknown, but the film would most likely be shot in English, Deadline reports.I am delighted to be partnering again with Gianni after working with him on the epic series Those About to Die (Prime Video) and with Simon, to develop the remake of this great classic, which created a whole new cinematic sub-genre, spawning over 500 European Westerns.” applauds the producer Enzo Sisti. “We are determined to produce a remake that does justice to Sergio Leone's great classic..”

No director has been announced yet. It is also unclear who is supposed to take the place of Clint Eastwood in the casting.

Let us remember all the same that For a Fistful of Dollars was already a remake of a Japanese film, Bodyguard (Yojimbo1961) by Akira Kurosawa.
