On the soundtrack I'd like to hear Chris Cornell singing (Morricone would still write the score, of course). Not necessarily any lyrics but that amazing voice, almost like screaming, which only he can make.

For those who don't know: Cornell has been the singer of bands Soundgarden (I've heard only their first one but I love it) and Audioslave (sounds good but somehow I haven't listened to them that much), and is now doing solo career. He sings the title song in Casino Royale.

I've just realised something... if it has to be spaghetti western, the director should be Italian, no?

You are right. Any Italian director you admire working today?

No. I know very few about temporary cinema and absolutely nothing about temporary Italian cinema. Embarrassed

Well Castellari is still around and I made the suggestion that Bertolucci could probably make a fine looking western (and he's connected to OUTITW).

This is true. I wish they were making spaghetti westerns on a regular basis!

And I think it would still find an audience. If they were able to present it the right way. People like action films. And westerns are often just action films based in Wild West...

I think people would love spaghetti westerns if they were brought back on a consistent basis. I mean look at how many people love violence in today's films. It would find a crowd. But, on the other hand, not all spaghetti westerns are full of action and extremely violent. Depends what way you would go about filming them.

That's what I meant. If it was directed by someone capable, with violence and action, but with a message (and not loads of talking pretending to be a message), it would be great.

Wow I am digging your ideas here! Especially the idea of Al Pacino and Gary Oldman in the same movie.

I would like to add Daniel Craig...I think he would make a good gang member, or silent anti-hero type. He has those features that I knoe Leone would love to do close ups of.

Daniel Craig is a fantastic choice Kevin! Imagine a close up of those eyes?! Fits perfectly with Leone.

Tommy Lee Jones is excellent. Alan Rickman? As a villain, I think...

Alan should be a corrupted, evil marshall...
Tommy the old gunslinger...
Julio Cedillo (he was very good pairing with Tommy in M.E.) a mexican revolutionar...
