Franco Nero - Franco Nero Reprising Django Role
Actor Franco Nero is set to reprise his role as Django nearly 50 years after he originally portrayed the gunslinger on the big screen.
The Die Hard 2 star first appeared as the character in Sergio Corbucci's cult 1966 movie Django, and he returned in the film's 1987 sequel Django Strikes Again.
The original film has spawned a series of movies, including Quentin Tarantino's 2012 hit Django Unchained, which starred Jamie Foxx in the title role and featured Nero in a cameo as a slave trader.
The new film, Django Lives, will be set in 1915.
Nero will play a consultant to producers of silent movie westerns, who finds himself at odds with racketeers.
