Last Updated 2 weeks by Amnon J. Jobi | Amnon Front Page

One of Clint Eastwood’s famous “spaghetti Western” films, “A Fistful of Dollars,” is getting a remake thanks to the help of Hollywood and Italian veterans in the movie-making industry.

In a statement from Hollywood veteran Gianni Nunnari (300) and Simon Horsman of Euro Gang Entertainment, alongside Italian production veteran Enzo Sisti (Ripley) of FPC, and Rome-based Jolly Film (which produced the original movie), they said they were thrilled at the prospect of remaking one of Sergio Leone and Eastwood’s classic films, Deadline noted.

“I am delighted to partner with Gianni again having just worked with him on ‘Those About to Die’, and with Simon on the remake of this classic film, which created a whole new sub-genre in film spawning over 500 European westerns,” Sisti said.

Nunnari and Horsman added: “Enzo is one of the most experienced producers in the film business, and we are fortunate to call him our partner on this incredible project. We are determined to produce a remake that does justice to the great Sergio Leone’s classic.”

The Western movie, which came out in Italy in 1964, is about “a wandering gunfighter” who “plays two rival families against each other in a town torn apart by greed, pride, and revenge,” a description on IMDb read. 

It not only created a whole new genre called “spaghetti Westerns” but also helped to launch Eastwood’s career, the outlet noted.

The success of Leone’s “A Fistful of Dollars” helped create two more movies in a classic Western trilogy of movies, “For a Few Dollars More,” followed by “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.” All three movies are about the “Man with No Name,” Eastwood’s character, IMDb noted.

Eastwood starred in all three and went on to become a famous Hollywood star known for his rugged and tough appearance in westerns followed by his no-nonsense approach in cop movies.

Production is being kept under wraps as it’s still early in the process, Deadline noted. It is unclear if the film will be in English as the original movie was released in Italy and dubbed into English for audiences in the United States in 1967, along with the other two films in the trilogy, Reel Reviews noted.
