“Get Three Coffins Ready”

According to Deadline, the classic spaghetti western A Fistful Of Dollars, which starred Clint Eastwood, looks to be getting the TV treatment.

The film launched Eastwood’s career and it was the first of director Sergio Leonne’s The Man With No Name Trilogy, which also included other iconic westerns For A Few Dollars More and The Good, The Bad And The Ugly.

Now it’s going to become a TV show, and Mark Gordon Pictures is developing the project, and Game Of Thrones writer Bryan Cogman is rumoured to be handling the adaptation.

In A Fistful of Dollars, The Man With No Name (Eastwood) enters the Mexican village of San Miguel in the midst of a power struggle among the three Rojo brothers (Antonio Prieto, Benny Reeves, Sieghardt Rupp) and sheriff John Baxter (Wolfgang Lukschy). When a regiment of Mexican soldiers bearing gold intended to pay for new weapons is waylaid by the Rojo brothers, the stranger inserts himself into the middle of the long-simmering battle, selling false information to both sides for his own benefit.

Mark Gordon Pictures has an existing deal with eOne, under which they continue to acquire, develop and produce an expansive slate of projects spanning multiple genres and mediums.
