Sergio Corbucci’s classic Django will get a remake in a new Quentin Tarantino spaghetti western to be called Django Unchained. The Italian actor Franco Nero, who appeared in the original, will be enlisted for the Tarantino remake, which could be as violent as the first film. Other actors said to appear in the new film are Christoph Waltz and Keith Carradine.
The Tarantino-Nero collaboration is only rumoured at this stage, but is also said to be reciprocated with Tarantino agreeing to appear in turn in a new Nero spaghetti western production. Tarantino will apparently play a cameo role as a bandit in Enzo Castellari’s The Angel, The Ugly and The Wise, itself a tribute to Sergio Leone. Tarantino has previously made Inglorious Bastards, which was made in 2009 and was inspired by Castellari’s 1977 film of the same name.

We all enjoy a good love story and Letters to Juliet, set in Verona and some of Italy’s more stunning landscapes, is the happy ending that Romeo and Juliet wasn’t. The story follows a young American tourist in Verona who discovers a love letter and replies after more than 40 years; an action which starts a nostalgic trip to find the lost lover and some soul searching for the young American herself. The film stars Amanda Seyfried and Vanessa Redgrave, and has its US release this month, followed by its UK release in June.
Yes, you guessed it. The photo above is THE balcony in Verona and I expect we should be seeing it at some stage in the film Letters to Juliet, to be released next year. Directed by Gary Winick, the film has been set in various locations in Italy, including the Romeo and Juliet city of Verona, as the title would suggest.
The film synopsis is as follows:
When a young American travels to the city of Verona, home of the star-crossed lover Juliet Capulet of Romeo and Juliet fame, she joins a group of volunteers who respond to letters to Juliet seeking advice about love. After answering one letter dated 1951, she inspires its author to travel to Italy in search of her long-lost love and sets off a chain of events that will bring a love into both their lives unlike anything they ever imagined.
It stars Amanda Seyfried, Vanessa Redgrave, Gael Garcia Bernal and Franco Nero. In what should prove to be an intriguing film, Franco Nero, Redgrave’s husband, plays her love interest.
The film takes inspiration from the book by Lise and Ceil Friedman which collects real-life letters to Shakespeare’s Juliet. Other locations in Italy for the film included the wine cellars at Veneto’s medieval town of Soave. After the jump, a tourist catches a video glimpse of the Letters to Juliet set.
