I think what you have to hope is that it at least gets distributed.

Good point. Not too many foreign films reach major distribution here in the states.

Not even here, I'm afraid.

Sorry guys! Just heard from my contact at Texas Hollywood (Almeria) and, you`ve guessed it, the filming will "now not take place in September". If this is indeed Enzo Castellari`s film then it`s running true to form with yet another delay. And I`d been hoping for a part as an extra in it. If another western is going to be made here in southern Spain in the forseeable future it looks as though fellow member Ramon and his mates are going to have to make it! Manana, manana!

So good luck with that, El Mal! And tell us, please... but you already promised it. :)

If the filming will take place, I hope they give the actors of Fort Bravo / Texas Hollywood a (small) part in it. The boyz are really doing a great job overthere. I saw a show in July and they looked very professional and did it with great enthusiasm. Make their dream come through, they deserve it.

Update!

Buone nuove - Franco Nero arriva all'aeroporto di Fiumicino, aria elegante e atteggiamento giovane nonostante le sessantasei primavere. L'attore è di ritorno da uno dei suoi tanti viaggi di lavoro, o forse sarebbe meglio dire di piacere dal momento che si è parlato del suo ritorno al western. "Siamo gi  a buon punto. Il sogno di tornare al cinema con  un western sta per realizzarsi, il film sar  diretto da Enzo G. Castellari, regista  con il quale ho gi  girato Jonathan degli orsi e altri  bellissimi film d'azione. Il produttore è tedesco, si chiama  Douglas Welbat".

Gli implacabili - La coppia Nero - Castellari - probabilmente la più cool del cinema di genere italiano - torna al lavoro a quattordici anni di distanza da Jonathan degli Orsi. Quell'ultimo film insieme, con la sua dedica a Sergio Corbucci, sembrava un saluto commosso alla grande stagione dello spaghetti western, invece… Del nuovo progetto in verit  se ne parla gi  da qualche anno (Mickey Rourke era un possibile interprete), ma adesso grazie a un produttore tedesco l'idea si concretizzer : "Al momento c'è anche un titolo provvisorio, Gli implacabili, che piace al regista, anche se io preferisco L'angelo, il bruto e il saggio. Il western è un genere di film  che amo molto e mi manca. Purtroppo finora non l'ho potuto  riportare sul grande schermo per via dei finanziamenti che non  siamo riusciti a trovare in Italia".

Il west iberico - "Presto per il film andremo a fare dei  sopralluoghi in Spagna, in Almeria, dove c'è il famoso villaggio di Sergio Leone. Speriamo che vada tutto bene". Franco Nero - amante e sostenitore del genere, oltre alle pellicole di Castellari, Django di Corbucci è entrato di diritto nella storia del cinema - sar  di certo estasiato dall'idea di girare dove Sergio Leone creò alcuni capolavori. La Spagna è davvero la Monument Valley dello spaghetti western, sono tantissime, infatti, le pellicole di quella stagione ad essere state girate in terra iberica.

Nero/Castellari - Il regista de Quel maledetto treno blindato ha diretto Franco Nero per la prima volta nel 1973, il film era La polizia incrimina, la legge assolve, uno tra i poliziotteschi più riusciti di sempre, dove Nero divideva lo schermo con il grande Fernando Rey. L'anno successivo fu la volta del cult Il cittadino si ribella, nel '76 i due, invece, girarono Keoma, considerato da molti l'ultimo capolavoro del western all'italiana; Cipolla Colt del '76 è una variazione divertita del genere che si avvale di grandi interpreti come Martin Balsam e Sterling Haydin, ancora Il cacciatore di squali ('79) e Il giorno del cobra ('80). Dopo Jonathan degli orsi del '93, Castellari ha utilizzato il suo attore feticcio anche nei televisivi Il ritorno di Sandokan e in Deserto di fuoco.


http://www.skylife.it/html/skylife/cinema/articolo/2007_Marzo/07-03-29-enzo-g-castellari-franco-nero-gli-implacabili-nuovo-western.html

Translation:

Good News - Franco Nero arrives at the airport of Fiumicino with an elegant air and a youthful attitude in spite of his older carridge. The actor is returning from one of his many work related trips, and he was pleased to talk about his return to the Western. "We are at a good point, the dream of a return to the Western is about to become realized. The film will be directed by Enzo G. Castellari, the director with which I have already filmed Jonathan of the Bears and other great action films. The producer is the German, Douglas Welbat."

Gli Implaqcabili - La Coppia Nero -, Castellari probably the coolest director of films of Italian Genre, returns to the job fourteen years after filmimg Jonathan of the Bears.. That last film with its dedication to Sergio Corbucci, was a homage to the great era of Spaghetti Westerns. In truth,  the new project which has been delayed/developing for a few years (Mickey Rourke was a possible castmember) is now thanks to a German producer about to be realized: "at the moment there is a temporary title The Implacable Ones, that appeals to the director, even if I prefer The Angle, The Brute, and the Sage. The Western is a film genre that I love a lot and I miss it. Unfortunately I have up to now not been able to bring it back to the big screen, because of financing that we were not able to find in Italy".

Almeria - "Soon we will go to scout locations, in Spain, in Almeria, where there is the famous village of Sergio Leone. We hope all goes good." Franco Nero - beyond the films of Castellari and "Django" of Corbucci, has become an icon of the genre and has entered into the history of cinema -  is ecstatic to film in the same places where Sergio Leone directed his masterpieces. Spain is indeed the Monument Valley of the Spaghetti Western, it is traditional for films of that genre to be filmed on Iberian soil.

Nero/Castellari - the director of Quel Maldetto Treno Blindato - had directed Franco Nero the first time in 1973, the film was The Police Indicts the Law Acquits, used ruthless tactics,  Nero shared the screen with  Frenando Rey.  In the following years was the cult of the citizen rebels, in 1976 instead Catellari & Nero filmed Keoma, considered by many the last masterpiece of the Spaghetti Western. Cry Onion of '76, was an amusing variation of the genre that had the great actors Martin Balsam and Sterling Hayden, and The Hunter of Squali '79 and Day of the Cobra '80.  After Jonathan of the Bears in '93, Castellari went to television with "The Return of Shandokan" and "Desert Of Fire".

Thanks cigar joe for bringing the Franco Nero news item to our attention. This talk of a new spag western has been running for some time now. Not much info in the news item other than it looks as though nobody in Italy is going to cough up the "dinero" to make this film. What do we know of the German producer, Douglas Welbat, who presumably is to be involved in finding the aforesaid money? He looks remarkably like Leone! But his most recent claim to fame appears to have been a production for children entitled "Seven Dwarves - The Wood Is Not Enough". Oh dear. I'll keep my eyes and ears open here in Spain in case anything is reported of the scouting trips. But Almeria is some way south of me so our press may not report anything. I'll see if my contact at Texas Hollywood/Fort Bravo Studios knows anything.

By the way, as far as I can tell TH/FB don't have any interior studio facilities other than perhaps the saloon but we now have a new state of the art film studio in Alicante - "Ciudad de la Luz" - http://www.ciudaddelaluz.com - (City of Light) which has recently been filming the new Asterix film with Gerard Depardieu.

If it ever happens I plan on going down there to see if i can get a part in it as an extra!

That's quite funny. I know nothing about it, but I wouldn't be so biased against children films, actually... anyway, when we were children, we must have watched quite a lot of them...

Good luck with gettting the part!

Don't get me wrong. I've nothing against children's films! Just the suitability or otherwise of an actor(mainly tv) and occasional producer of children's films putting together a spaghetti western. I have visions of "A Fistful Of Dollies", "A Fistful Of Play Dough", "Death Rides A Gee Gee" or "My Name Is Barbie"!

I've heard from my contact at Fort Bravo Studios, Almeria (he has been keeping his horses there) but unfortunately he has heard nothing of the proposed Franco Nero film. If he does he's promised to let me know. He has befriended an American actor, Andrew McCarthy (Mannequin, Pretty In Pink, St.Elmo's Fire) who is planning a TV series "On Location With Andrew McCarthy" to be filmed in Almeria.

Good news for me as a resident of Torrevieja, Costa Blanca, is that a new motorway had just opened between Cartagena and Vera, Almeria which will cut down my travel time to the Almeria region considerably. Unfortunately it'll cost me a few euros in tolls but it will be worth it. Hope to try it out soon.

But that's exactly what I think is a mistake, if you don't know him (I don't). Why shouldn't someone making children's films like SW's as well?

No offense, it was just my love for children's stories talking... anyway, there's big difference between Barbie and the moomins, for example.

Castelleri & Nero to film im Alicante?

Discussion here in Italian:

http://www.nocturno.it/bbforum/smf/index.php?topic=4464.msg92634

more links in Spanish further down below

here is one of them:

Somebody who can read Spanish translate this:

Mis Tardes con Castellari
A mí me han pasado cosas surrealistas en mi vida, pero tanto como ir al cine a ver Piratas del Caribe 3 con Enzo Castellari...
Jueves. Tres de la tarde. Cafetería de la Escuela de Cine. Saludo a Enzo que me abraza con amor.
¿Qué haces esta tarde pequeñita? Y yo le digo el plan. ¡Me apunto!, me contesta. Y nada, allá que cojo yo mi coche destartalado para llevar al maestro al cine a ver el espanto de los piratas cojonceros. Yo no tengo más remedio que ver estas cosas comercialoides y tengo la impresión de que Castellari se debe aburrir mucho en Alicante el pobre, así que estaba encantado con el plan.
A mí me divirtió en asunto porque iba con él, que si no... y es que la cosa es amarga de digerir.
El pobre señor y yo aguantamos estoicamente pero de vez en cuando se le oía decir: "Mamma mia, como hablan!!!! es que no van a callar nunca?".
Cuando salió en escena Chow Yun Fat exclamó: "Qué grande, qué grande", y después hacía los gestos sarasones de Johnnie Depp con las manos. En fin, muy gracioso todo.
Eso sí, salimos exhaustos, porque ver una película de tres horas con tanta lucha marina agota lo suyo. Menos mal que estamos casi en junio que si no se nos hace de noche.
Depués Enzo me contó sus proyectos cinematográficos. Uno de ellos se rodaría en Alicante, y sería un "wenster del horror" como él lo llama, y saldrían muchos famosetes haciendo de extras, entre ellos un trío vaquero formado por Tarantino, Rodríguez... ay, no me acuerdo del otro. Del que sí me acuerdo es de Argento, que sólo ponía una condición para hacer la peli: que él pudiera llevar su propio vestuario. Ya se me hace la boca agua de pensar en la cara de malote de Argento haciendo de vaquero con su propia ropa. Yo eso no me lo pierdo.
El guión lo tiene ya escrito, y me lo va a dar para que Domingo haga la traducción al español. Qué emoción.
También me ha dicho que la próxima peli de Tarantino será un remake de una de las suyas, "Inglorious Bastards" o "Quel maledetto treno blindatto" en italiani. A ver si así se entera la gente de quién es este hombre y lo ponen en su sitio. Entonces vendrán los modernos y se harán los guays reivindicándolo como si lo hubieran descubierto ellos. Qué asco dan.
