Also, ich habe jetzt die Produzentin des neues Filmes ausfindig gemacht. Es ist Sabine Niederberghaus-Lesavoy (Karl May USA), die seit Jahren hart an einer Neuverfilmung arbeitet. Auf Facebook hat sie nun folgende Mitteilung verlauten lassen:
Das sind also nun die Infos aus erster Hand. Bei dieser Meldung waren übrigens auch neue Fotos von Jay Tavare zu sehen, womit nun auch bestätigt sein dürfte, dass er der neue Winnetou ist.Sabine Niederberghaus-Lesavoy hat geschrieben:
To all the Winnetou Fans around the world:
I am a German born producer and business woman, who was raised like many of you with Karl May books and the wonderful movies of the 1960’s.
The impact of Winnetou on my young mind created such passion in my heart, that I have now acquired the international rights to create a new franchise based on these old books and movies. My first project “The Legend of Winnetou” promises to pick up where these old images left off. My project is an entire new take on the Karl May characters and stories.
I have recently returned from the Mescalero Apache reservation, where I made some wonderful friends and contacts with “The People”. My first task was to show “Winnetou” as authentic as possible and still keep the romanticized edge in our story. That is why I am seeking real council from the Mescalero Apache Elders and Medicine Men.
A new movie is in the works as we speak and my project “The Legend of Winnetou” will be the first of several films promising to give birth to a new legend for the new era, yet satisfy the die-hard “Winnetou’ fans such as myself.
The Legend of Winnetou is attracting a high calibar of talent in all areas here in Hollywood, and I can't wait to share more with you in the coming year... so stay tuned !!!!
