Appearing at the Los Angeles Italia festival to promote Pasquale Squitieri’s “Father”, actor Franco Nero revealed that he, Quentin Tarantino, Keith Carradine, Treat Williams and many others are apparently all going to be a part of a new spaghetti western project reports Movie Player (via The Playlist)
“The film will be called ‘The Angel, The Bad And The Wise’ and is a tribute to Sergio Leone. it’s a movie that contains humor, lots of action, but also a great plot. We have already been signed by a dozen people who will be part of project. Among the filmmakers involved include Quentin Tarantino , Keith Carradine, Treat Williams, fifteen people in all Americans who want to do this movie and so we are trying to produce it outside of Italy” said Nero.
Other details on the project are minimal at this time. Tarantino has always been very keen on Leone’s work and has previously expressed a desire to take on a Western.
Update: AICN adds some more to the story, confirming much of the details and adding that Christoph Waltz (“Inglourious Basterds”) will co-star. “The Angel, The Bad And The Wise” will not be the title they use, and shooting will take place in Italy and Spain later this year.
