Is it really the same movie we’re talking about?
“Ugly,” Koolhoven’s lighthearted take on the Spaghetti Western genre co-written by the director and Robert Fusco, begins shooting in the spring. The script revolves around a gang of misfit cowboys, led by brothers Red and Bobby, who accidentally steal a side-show freak – the “ugly” of the title – and begin showing her around the Wild West for money.
Brimstone’s far from a lighthearted take on SW and the plot obviously changed a bit. Either way, I’m glad the final version was what I saw and not something else.
