Continuing on from a discussion I was having with Lindberg on the Rep company cast from Tessari’s Ringo films it struck me as an interesting idea to select your own ideal group of personel. The principal is this:
If (in an ideal fantasy world) you were producing a series of different spaghetti westerns and you could choose a group of names to appear and make all of them, who would you pick? We will base this on the same confines as Tessari chose, so you must pick 4 actors and 2 actresses who could all interchange goodie and baddie roles. At least one of these should be older to cover the father, banker, doctor, has been roles. You also get to chose a director, cinematographer and composer. The only restrictions here are NO LEONE OR MORRICONE. Just to avoid the obvious.
When making your choices try and think versatility and variety. People who can interchange and adapt to varying material but who, together, would make something of a supergroup.
I’ll give it some thought myself and then post my line up to get you started.
