Point Blank Pictures has scored the rights to “Django Lives,” a sequel to the 1966 classic spaghetti western.
Franco Nero, who played the character in the original films, reprises the role in this $5 million project which also stars Mark Boone Junior and Noah Segan.
Set in 1915, former gunslinger Django is now a film consultant. There he runs afoul of a group of racketeers, forcing him to flee to a town under the thumb of violent radicals.
Joe D’Augustine, who worked as an additional editor on Tarantino’s “Kill Bill” films and “Inglourious Basterds,” directs from a script by Eric Zaldivar and Mike Malloy. Carolyn Pfeiffer and David Hollander are producing and currently seeking a female lead.
