Wincer Helming Dances With Wolves Sequel


Simon Wincer has signed on to direct The Holy Road — a sequel to Dances With Wolves — for Moonstone, Amicus Entertainment and Double Eagle Films.

Variety says the script was penned by Michael Blake, who wrote the screenplay for “Wolves” as well as the two novels on which the two films are based.

The story picks up 11 years after “Wolves” as the Comanche tribe is in steady decline and the threat of white settlers looms. The title “Holy Road” refers to the transcontinental railroad, which is a symbol of the clash of civilizations.
