John is writing DJANGO LIVES! for Franco Nero to star

John is working on the latest installment of the iconic Django series. DJANGO LIVES! will see Franco Nero return to the role that he originated in the 1966 spaghetti Western classic Django.

Franco had these kind words to say about John coming on board to write the script: “Sayles is a master of literature. His LONE STAR is one of the greatest modern westerns ever shot. He knows how to be exquisitely cultivated and people-oriented at the same time, exactly like another master I’ve worked with, Mr. Orson Welles. And that says a lot.”

John and Maggie’s good friend Louis Black is producing along with Carolyn Pfeiffer, David Hollander and Nancy P. Sanders of Fast Draw Films. No director is attached at the moment.
