John Sayles to direct Franco Nero in Django Lives

Back in the summer of 2014 it was reported that Franco Nero would reprise the role of Django from the 1966 spaghetti western for Django Lives, and now the project has found itself a writer and director in Oscar-nominated filmmaker John Sayles (Passion Fish, Lone Star).

Django Lives will mark Nero’s third outing as Django after the original movie and the 1987 sequel Django Strikes Again!, and while plot details are being kept under wraps, it had previously been reported that the film would “be set in 1915, with Nero playing the role of an older Django working as a consultant to producers of silent movie westerns who gets involved with racketeers.” Of course, that could change, given that Sayles will now be rewriting.
