Here's an idea for you guys, that you can feel free to discard:

I have a "fansite" devoted to a comic book character (Steve Ditko's The Question), and I'm currently running what I call a "Book Club" -- a separate forum from my regular public anything-goes forum where people get into serious discussions about the comics we're reading.

I've got it set up to read them one at a time -- a comic a week -- and though we haven't started yet, I've got folks interested in writing reviews, essays, posting old interviews with comic creators, and basically developing a complete, almost academic study of these books. I'm really excited about it starting as soon as DC Comics stops delaying the release of the first set of trade paperbacks!

You could institute something like that here -- a new subforum with a viewing list -- and everyone could watch that week's movie and discuss it in-depth in the forum. Sort of like we do already, except everyone would be on the same page with a fresh viewing (leading to a more specific discussion) and wouldn't have to necessarily bump old topics.

Just a thought. The Sergio Leone AV Club or something like that.

Like I said, feel free to discard it.

Hey maybe a modern day Sabata-influenced Bond?

Know any acrobats LA? :D

Please keep these Roger Moore fans away from the franchise!  ;)

That's okay! It happens to the best of us.

Once I wrote the word "erotic" when I meant "esoteric"!

Ah yes, Barry Nelson as good ol' Jimmy Bond with British agent Clarence Leiter.

You neglected to mention that also in the old Casino Royale we get to look at Ursula Andress

Barbara Bouchet

Joanna Pettet

and Jacqueline Bisset....

Always thought Sam Neill would have made a good Bond-"Bond, James Bond, g'day mate!"

Neill has a screentest on the Living Daylights SE DVD. He would've been good, I think.

I'm tempted to register multiple accounts to vote for Connery, just so that newcomers to the site don't discount all of your opinions based on your love of Roger Moore. Because you're all obviously in the wrong here!  >:D

Not sure. I heard there is a lot of gadgets in it.

What I mean is that surely you mean Goldfinger:

And not Goldmember:


Some early ideas:

The villain of the piece would definitely have to be Willem Dafoe as Tigrero/Loco:

I'm thinking Clive Owen as Django. Handsome, but rugged like Nero. You have to both empathize emotionally with the character as well as see him capable of gunning down a small army with a gatling gun. I think Owen could pull this off:

For some reason, Gianni Garko has always reminded me of Vincent D'Onofrio. Perhaps its the intensity in their eyes. Whatever the case, if D'Onofrio can drop some weight (as opposed to that which he gained for Full Metal Jacket) and be pulled away from CSI, I can see him dressed all in black saying, "I'm your pallbearer."

The book "Goldmember" I hear is as close to the movies as the series gets.

Surely this is an unintentional slip!

Robert De Niro directing a western? I never thought of him. That be interesting.

I just watched the Good Shepherd, and I found the direction compelling...but not the story so much. I'm also a big fan of A Bronx Tale. I think DeNiro might be a good choice because maybe some of Leone rubbed off on him during OUATIA. And even if not, he can call up Marty Scorcese for assistance, and that'd please a couple of people in this topic....

Robert DeNiro (with a good writer) / Tom Waits

I am! I've got near-complete sets from several different publishers. I was overjoyed to watch Casino Royale, which, with a few exceptions, stuck pretty close to the book.

You left out the best one ever: The Blues Brothers.

Inspired by this post in another thread:

Just thinking, wouldn't it have been fantastic if someone had made a genuine SW team-up film, with Clint as MWNN, Franco Nero as Django, Lee Van Cleef as Sabata and Gianni Garko as Sartana? In fact, any combination of two from that list would've been brilliant.

So this probably won't happen (can't, in Cleef's case). So let's say that some director who's a spaghetti fan (Cox, Tarantino) decided to cast the movie that serves as the title for this topic. What modern actors would best fill the roles created in the classic spaghettis?

Let me cut off the spoilsports at the pass. I know we're all classicists here. We love our old movies and we'd abhor anything like this really happening. But just for the sake of fun / debate, let's give it a whirl without instantly kicking into the, "This is a horrible idea and I'm not participating, but posting only so you know how horrible an idea this is," sort of post. First person to ignore this paragraph and do this has to watch White Comanche.

I'll be working on my own ideas in the meantime.

Starring as Blondie/Manco/Joe/MWNN (the role created by Clint Eastwood):
Starring as Sartana (the role created by Gianni Garko):
Starring as Django (the role created by Franco Nero):
Starring as Sabata (the role created by Lee Van Cleef):
Starring as Ringo (the role created by Giuliano Gemma):
Starring as Trinity (the role created by Terence Hill):
