Sergio Leone’s Heirs to Produce Spaghetti Western TV Series Titled ‘Colt’ (Exclusive)

25 May 2016 6:50 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome — Italy’s expanding Leone Film Group is venturing into the Spaghetti Western territory so dear to its late great founder with an English-language TV series titled “Colt,” based on an idea developed by Sergio Leone, master of the genre.

The concept is centered around the six-shooter packed by Clint Eastwood in “For a Fistful of Dollars.”

“It’s from my father’s idea in which the gun was the main character and the device through which the tale is told,” said Raffaella Leone, who now runs Leone Film Group with her brother Andrea.

“We are thinking of six episodes, each one connected to a single gun shot. But we could do more,” she added.

Italian director Stefano Sollima, who has made a name for himself helming Sky’s naturalistic Neapolitan mob drama “Gomorra,” which is Italy’s all time top TV export, will direct the first two episodes and act as showrunner. »
