Tom Courtenay as Sean might have been interesting - a very intense actor who definitely could've pulled it off (though his Sean would've been different than Coburn's).  But then, I've been watching too much "Doctor Zhivago" recently. . .  Tongue

I can't see Jack Nicholson instead of David Warbeck.
I came across some info re: David Warbeck while surfing the net...It seems that Leone chose Warbeck for the role simply because he looked so much like Nicholson, who was
peaking in his career in the early seventies.

Warbeck's forehead is the only resemblance he has to Nicholson (without that mole of course  Wink  )

Kinski should play the Evil German Officer (always forget his name).  Grin

Well if we had the same film he would have been completely wasted.

Oh, Kinski could make even little roles great. Just remember the hunchback.

What about this?:

Eli Wallach as Juan Miranda

Peter O'Toole as John Mallory

Gerard Herter or Telly Savalas as Gunter Ruiz

Benito Stefanelli as Dr. Villega

Wallach and O'Toole would be interesting, although their Juan and John would be vastly different from the ones we know. Stefanelli is okay as random henchman #45 but he doesn't have anything of the gravitas needed for Villega (Valli is perfectly cast I think). I don't think anyone could have gotten much of Ruiz as written.

Shocked

just for the sake of arguement...

There should be no remake for the sake of making DYS popular. if anything it should be advertised to the public that this movie exist. Those who are interested will look into it and those who arent lose one more wonderful experience they could have had in their life.
I am with the Firecracker at 100% on this. Leone stands alone and his films need no remaking.
All his films are set in the past. His attention to detail is remarkable. Why a remake? Would the 1930's of OUATIA or the 1870's of OUATITW be presented with more precision than Leone's treatment. No remake on any of his films could do justice to the original.
