Hi there,

well, maybe the Spaghetti Western is dead... but only because nobody did one for years!

If you had the bucks to film a Spaghetti Western in Spain, with unknown actors, recycling a less known Morricone Score or an original soundtrack by an unknown composer... what would it be like?

What would your characters be like? What would be the basic plot?

There are enough people with Spaghetti Western knowledge here and the passion for it. We just could play with our minds and put together a script with a great plot and great characters!

So, tell us, what would you like to see in a new Spaghetti Western?

Andre

A few of us made one in March! Not quite Leone yet but its a start. Hoping to set up a get-together next year too. Take a look at Blindman's site for some stills.

I'm in a band, and I've actually written a Morricone style Spaghetti western theme which I'm really proud of, probably the best song I've ever written. I hope to use it some day.

It's not as sexy (or expensive) as a movie, but I recently pitched a graphic one-shot to an artist friend of mine that would tell a Euro-Western kind of story.  He did some work on the Neversoft release, Gun, and is still interested in doing more work in the genre.

If it comes together, Bound by Blood will be a 32-page tale of revenge, as stripped down as some of the original Italo-Westerns.  He hasn't said yea or nay yet, but my fingers are crossed.  In the meanwhile, I've been kicking around the idea of doing a western as my next novel project.

We should write a script right here, just for the fun. Someone should give the basic story outline, then we each contribute a few lines, and see where we get.

Who's with me?

I have done this once on a Bogart web board and it is alot of fun.  Although we had a few rules like if you introduced a character you are the only one allowed to kill him off or someone can PM you and ask for your permission to kill the character off.

You don't really need a plot or a title, I mean you can have one if you want, but it just kind of takes off on it's own and it's really great to see where the story goes and takes on a life of it's own.

Let's do it!

Who wants to start us out?

We need to come up with a title and a timeframe.

I'd say a good title would be something like:

A Good Day To Die

EXT.  DESERT MOUNTIAN RANGE  DAY

We SEE a speck moving in the far distance, we HEAR the wind as it howls across the plateau before us blowing the greasewood brush wildly about.

A lone coyote yelps in the distance.  The speck grows larger and emerages from the mountain range as a man wearing a black derby bowler hat and black duster on a Palamino.  The coyote howls again and the man pulls back on the reins of the horse to pause for a momnet.  Just as he is about to start back up he hears rumbling behind him.  He turns to see a small rock slide comming from the foothills of the mountains 25 yards away.  He notices a shinny glint of metal next to one of the large bolders where the rock slide seemed to generate from.

The hair starts to raise on the back of his neck and he hears the all to familier sound of Winchester cocking...

From up in the mountains we hear someone scream " THIS IS FOR MY BROTHER!!! " The man fires the winchester repeatedly but misses. The man in the black derby gallops away to the side out of the way of the falling rocks. He takes cover behind a solid boulder just in case some falling rocks come his way. He pulls out his Colt Bluntline Special and connects the shoulder stalk ( or however you spell it ) to the but of the pistol. He takes aim as the man with the winchester up in the hills fires down at the man. One shot from the Bluntline rings out and the rifleman is dead. The rock slide has by now ended and the man gets up onto his horse and rides down to the praries.
