Sergio Leone News / the good , the bad and the ugly videogame
« on: September 12, 2005, 09:40:49 AM »
Take a load of this, i can't wait -

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - If you have ever answered to the nickname Blondie, it might be time to dust off your poncho and make sure your six-shooter is fully loaded. "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" is coming to a game platform near you.

In a deal with MGM Interactive, Bits Studios has acquired video game rights to the three Sergio Leone movies often called "The Man With No Name" trilogy. The 1966 classic "Good, Bad, Ugly" which starred     Clint Eastwood,     Lee Van Cleef and     Eli Wallach, was the last in the series but will be the first to get the interactive treatment.

Bits Studios CEO Foo Katan said he is exploring options for actors to contribute their likeness and voice talents. He has not ruled out working with Eastwood but said that likeness and other rights for original cast members need to be handled separately through the individual actors or estates because of the age of the movies.

Katan has secured portions of Ennio Morricone's memorable scores, however, which he thinks "is probably the most important aspect we embrace in the game beyond the film itself. They are powerful and unforgettable scores that you really associate with the films."

No publisher is attached yet, but the game is on schedule to ship next year for PC,     Xbox,     PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable.

Although it will bear the name and the music from the popular spaghetti Western, the third-person-perspective video game will follow a new story line that is influenced by the movies and will keep the tone of the films. This design approach supports better gameplay, Katan said.

Bits Studios is employing the same business model as it did with the video game based on Warner Bros. Pictures' "Constantine." The U.K.-based independent game development studio acquires Hollywood licenses on its own, creates the game and then finds a publisher to distribute the title worldwide.

Eastwood is already working on a revival of "Dirty Harry" for next-generation consoles next year, working with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developer Foundation 9 Entertainment.

Get in there...

General Discussion / Frayling's 'Once Upon a Time in Italy'
« on: December 16, 2004, 03:01:54 PM »
just been on amazon there and found that christopher frayling has a new book coming out on the 30th June 2005 called Once upon a time in italy: the westerns of sergio leone

anybody know anything about it?

it's funny but the strangers gundown is the only spaghetti that i like apart from leone's of course.
i mean it's cheap, yeah, steffen is no clint eastwodd, true, but who is, and the story is simple, yeah.
thats what i like about it, all the other spaghettie that i have seen try and be different and are just plain shite, because the directors are shit, all spaghettie are cheap and nasty, but at leats tis one is straight down the line action adventure, with a nice twist on the revenge theme, the fact that he might be a ghost, etc.
i mean django is appauling, the great silence has a couple of nice scenes, thanks to morricone, run man run is just plain boring, and the others that i've seen such as ace high,a ns some lee van cleef ones are just disgraceful, even though death rides a horse isn't too bad, again tthanks too morricone and cleef is good as well
if you like spaghetties you'll like the strangers gundown, but if you have taste and don't like spaghetti's then you'll you probably enjoy this as being nothing more than an action romp

General Discussion / The genius of any film you like
« on: October 06, 2004, 06:05:00 PM »
I'm just curious but i was wondering if everyone who's interested would name a film or two they would recommend to someone, bar leone's.
I mean we are all leone fanatic's here but apart from his film's what films' would you class as films' s you would show to someone to emphasise the genius or just sheer enjoyment you feel from a certain film.
There are loads obviously, but at the moment i'm pissed, and i've just got home from a night down middlesbrough, as well as listening to ennio morricone, i'm a bit emotional, in the sense of where's my life going, etc and all that bollocks, any way what films really get you going as a film fan, i'm more than curious.

Bye for now.

i thought in mastermind you have to choose a different topic each time your in the hot seat, so he won't be doing sergio leone again.

I could be wrong

It wasn't a film, it was just episodes of rawhide pieced together to make it look like a clint film, to cash in the success of the dollars trilogy, it was only realised for a short while then banned or something because it wasn't ligitimate.

The name comes from the original title that sergio wanted to call fistful, but later changed it, thank god.

Sergio had nothing to with it. It was an italian company who edited it together i think.

i heard that fondas agent didn't even give him the script to read, because it was a little known film, james coburn wanted $25,000 and sergio couldn't afford it, and clint was available for $15,000.

I hope thats right

charles bronson wasn't it

I think it's funny all this talk about spaghetti's. I've got Run Man Run and i think it's appaling, just proper boring, and there's no great scenes for me at all in it. But i have got DJANGO THE BASTARD aka (THE STRANGERS GUNDOWN). Which out of all the non leone spaghetti's is the best by far that i have seen. Just a typical story line of a man on a revenge trip killing the people that betrayed him. But you don't know whether he is dead or not, a forunner for High Plains Drifter, but not  as good, obviously. I also didn't like Django or Great silence that much either. Spaghetti's in general are poor imo. But Death Rides a horse was good i thought, but it did tail off towards the end.
I would like to see Keoma and Mannaja though because i think they could give me a different angle from Spaghetti's and i've heard alot of good things, but then again alot of people like Django, when i think it's complete dogshit, but interesting to hear peoples opinion. Funny though.

I know but i don't think Italy deserved to go through really, it's harsh but they should have done better in their other games. As for the Sweden Denmark game, the one result that could put Italy out, and it happens, quality that like.
Anyway more importantly England Portugal tomorrow, if we win that we'll win the championship i think. Come on England.
I think tonight might be exciting as well, who will go through Germany or Holland, i think Germany will because if they win then their through, and Czech Rep are playing a weekend side, shame, because no-one like the germans. Ha only joking.

General Discussion / Sergio as a footy fan

I wonder whether Sergio was a football fan? Wonder if he enjoyed Italy winning the world cup in 1982 in Spain, it's a shame he died in 1989 before the world cup was held in Italy in 1990.

Anyway i'm just hoping we beat Switzerland tomorrow.
I hope all you lot out there are enjoying euro 2004.
