Sky and CANAL+ have released a batch images from their high-concept small screen reimagining of Sergio Corbucci’s classic spaghetti western Django, giving us our first look at Matthias Schoenaerts as Django, Nicholas Pinnock as antagonist John Ellis, Noomi Rapace as Ellis’ merciless enemy Elizabeth, and Lisa Vicari as Django’s long lost daughter Sarah.
The story is set in the Wild West in the 1860s and 1870s. Sarah and John have founded New Babylon, a city of outcasts, full of men and women of all backgrounds, races and creeds, that welcomes everyone with open arms. Haunted by the murder of his family eight years earlier, Django is still looking for his daughter, believing she may have survived. He is shocked to find her in New Babylon, about to marry John. But Sarah, now a grown woman, wants Django to leave, as she fears he will put New Babylon in jeopardy if he stays. However, Django, believing the city is in danger, is adamant that he will not lose his daughter twice.
Django is currently shooting in Romania. As yet there’s no word on a premiere date, but we’ll keep you posted.
