...Who would be your director and cast?

I'll begin.

The obvious directing choice. Quentin Tarantino because of his love for Leone and the spaghetti western genre as a whole.

My cast...

Kevin Costner
Monica Bellucci
Ian McShane
Gary Oldman
Valeria Golino
Tom Sellick
James Gandolfini
Danny Trejo
Sam Elliot
Tomas Milian
Mickey Rourke


I added spaghetti western legend Tomas Millian Milian and italian actresses Monica Bellucci and Valeria Golino to give it that spaghetti western touch.


QT would really be an "abvious" directing choice because of his love for the spag western genre?

assuming that makes complete sense  :), and assuming most of the cast would not wreck the whole idea of a Leone-like western, the idea doesn't sound half bad.

From what I've seen from him, QT wouldn't be able to make a good italian like western let alone a western in general. Not his style.

If there has to be a woman, then it's Lauren Graham. 8)

Westerns especially Spaghetti Westerns cannot be made by Quentin Tarantino. Why? Because in all of his movies characters are talking too much. They talk. talk, talk.....Spaghetti W. characters are strong silent guys....Quentin Tarantino would be my last choice for directing any kind of SW. I respect his love for this genre, but his  style is just too diferent.

Mmmm this is untrue. I have to disagree poderator. Just watch Kill Bill Vol. 1. There's not a lot of talking in that film. If QT was to make a Spaghetti Western, I think his diologue would be trimmed down a lot.

It's perfect timing, large one...

If he had a script by someone who knows what to do... but I would prefer someone else, just for my personal, not completely reasonable, aversion against QT. ::)

I like the idea of casting Jean Reno, really.



There are two kinds of films in this world:those which stay,even when their genre is forgotten,and those which don't.

Jean Reno is a great actor and he has the perfect face for a western.

I mentioned on another thread that Bernardo Bertolucci could probably make a great Spaghetti Western and he's connected to OUTITW so he knows how to put favorite scenes from past Westerns together into a story, he doesn't do a lot of action flicks but who knows it may be a beautiful film .

Imagine a Morricone score with that film! It would be even better.
