no, it's not a rumour or scoop, just an idea I got :D


don't flame, this one was already a remake from Kurosawa. I don't mind remakes, if well done !!!!! ( this is a sine qua non condition ).


I think he would do well in the role of Yul. As for other characters,maybe:


ERIC BANA

COLIN FARELL

BRAD PITT ( ok, he's a bigger star... any other idea ?)

EWAN MC GREGOR

JOSH HARTNETT

HEATH LEDGER


there's also guys like WILL SMITH, BEN AFFLECK, JOHNNY DEPP etc. it's either a higher level category or a medium category ( the above ) though PITT and DIESEL are top category of course.


the bad guy: difficult, mmmh... someone with mexican potential. maybe DEL TORRO ? or someone older. Andy Garcia ? he has to be spanish speaking-sounding-looking.


the movie should be :

HEROIC

GRUESOME

VIOLENT

VERY WESTERN FEELING ( you have the feel in the late 19th century )

A TERRIFIC SCORE

INTELLIGENT DIALOGUES

AWESOME ACTION SCENES with thunderous bass (dynamite, horses) and gunshots

SOME FEELINGS ( for the peasants, for the wifes or girlfriends if any left behind ).

very very minimal humour ( virtually nil ).

sdme calm but deep moments, like in OUATITW.


this movie should be adult, should revive the spirit of THE WILD BUNCH, ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST (OUATITW) etc.


director: LAWRENCE KASDAN ( he proved it beautifully with SILVERADO) we need someone with western experience. Or Clint directing ?


music: (crucial !) BRUCE BROUGHTON ? TREVOR RABIN ? JOHN WILLIAMS ? please no fancy shmooncy modern stuff. stick with experimented guys.


film shooting format: Panavision !!!!


studios: COLUMBIA ? FOX ? (I want dts :) ) DREAMWORKS ?


there's so few western movies the last 10 years, too bad.

Ving Rhames for somebody! Need an older guy for the virtuoso/Coburn character- Morgan Freeman is probably too old, but any excuse to have him in anything is okay by me (actually an all African-American Mag7, if done properly, would be great- Denzel, Forrest Whittaker, Dr. Dre, Bernie Mack, Bill Duke); Scott Glenn would do too, or Willem Dafoe.
