Remake...No way

Sequel.....no Angel eyes, and Im not buying into the idea of AE twin brother Colonel Mortimer being in it.

So Prequel for me........

a story about Stevens and Jackson on how they got that gold....Plus a back story on how Tuco & Blondie got to know all about Angel eyes.

If I had to pick...prequel maybe?

Although in "The Good The Bad & The Ugly" novel authored by Joe Millard, there's a brief back story about the Yankee ambush and how Stevens/Jackson go the gold. Not sure if there's enough (interesting) story to warrant a prequel though.

There's also a a description of how Sentenza/AE became a Sergeant. There are other differences between the novel and the film. I recommend you obtain a copy off eBay if you're interested.

How does Sentenza become a Sergeantß

Pretty simple. He stumbles across a dead (or nearly dead, can't remember) union soldier and steals his uniform. lol!

I'd pick a sequel, as a matter of fact I actually wrote a sequel to "The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly" just for fun. I read that Luciano Vincenzoni [one of the screen writers for FDM or TGTBTU] wrote the movies "as a joke", as he claimed to have wrote FDM in 9 days and TGTBTU in 11, so I gave myself 11 days to write the sequel [not putting too much thought into it, just writing and seeing what I could come up with - not by any means to try and top the masterpiece that Leone created]. It's actually quite a fun exercise if you try it.

Just out of curiosity, is Joe Millard at all connected to the Leone? I'm interested in reading it, but I would be even more interesting if I could imagine the two discussing it  ;)

Senza - That does sound like a fun exercise
