There is probably a thread about that old Leone project somewhere but I cannot find it. Anyway. You guys all know about the TV show "COLT" that Leone never did. There is some news:


Quote
Stefano Sollima, the Italian director known in Hollywood for “Sicario: Day of the Soldado” and TV series “Gomorrah,” is set to shoot “Colt,” an English-language Western based on a Sergio Leone concept. The plan is to start shooting next winter.

“Colt” is being produced by Leone’s children Raffaella and Andrea, via their Leone Film Group. They are shopping the project in Cannes to prospective U.S. partners.

Originally conceived as a TV series, “Colt” takes its cue from the six-shooter packed by Clint Eastwood in “A Fistful of Dollars,” which becomes a narrative device as it is passes from owner to owner throughout the Old West.

Sollima, who is in advanced talks for a top U.S. writer to come on board, has tweaked Leone’s concept so that the gun changes hands between kids.

Whole article with a lot of information right there:

Solima's Sicario II was interesting. The guy clearly knows how to create tension, charismatic characters and cool action sequences. I hope he will let his images breath more in a western; that was the main (directing) flaw in Sicario II.

nice!

Frayling discussed this proposed film (or was it a TV show?) at the end of STDWD; as I recall, Sergio Donati had discussed writing it with Leone. Maybe Donati can write this after all  ;)

I couldn't quite get the concept until I went to the article and saw this:
Quote
“It’s a coming-of-age story of three kids, aged 12 or 13, who as orphans come into possession of this weapon, and for a whole series of reasons become criminals,” he said, adding: “I can assure you that a 12-year-old with a Colt in his hand is pretty striking."
So it's, uh, Young Guns 3?

It was a TV show. At least at some point. Many actors were considered. I seem to remember Richard Gere and Mickey Rourke.

Hum. I like Lehane a lot as a novelist. That being said there have been exactly 2 valuable adaptations of his work to the screen, and he didn't pen them. I'm not so sure about what he can bring to the table as a screenwriter. Wait and see!
