Sergio Leone and Clint Eastwood's classic "A Fistful Of Dollars" is set for a movie remake from Euro Gang Entertainment alongside Italian production vet Enzo Sisti (Ripley) of FPC, and Rome-based Jolly Film, which produced the original movie.

"A Fistful Of Dollars" is the story of a wandering gunfighter with no name who plays two rival families against each other in a town torn apart by greed, pride, and revenge.

The hit Western, released in the mid-’60s, helped launch the “spaghetti western” genre and Eastwood’s career (and others including that of composer Ennio Morricone). 

Its huge success spawned two more films in an iconic trilogy also comprising For a Few Dollars More and The Good the Bad and the Ugly, all starring Eastwood. 

The original has been identified as an unofficial remake of the Japanese classic Yojimbo (the similarity in material resulted in a successful lawsuit by producer Toho).

It’s still early in the process so production details are currently under wraps. 

There hasn’t been a significant remake of the original movie to date but four years ago it was reported that a Mark Gordon TV version was in development. That one didn’t come to fruition.
