Cinema: Franco Nero says no plans to retire yet

Iconic actor gets career gong at Filming Italy-Los Angeles fest

ANSA English Desk



Iconic Italian actor Franco Nero said Wednesday night he had no plans to retire after recently turning 82.
    "I still want to work a lot, even though I've already played all the role I wanted - all that was lacking were an orchestra conductor and the Pope, but I got to do them too in the last few years," the Django and Camelot star joked to ANSA after receiving a career achievement award at the Filming Italy - Los Angeles festival.
    Nero, whose long relationship with Vanessa Redgrave started on the Camelot set in 1967, recalled arriving in Hollywood the previous year for his break-out role as Abel in John Huston's The Bible: In the Beginning, as well as the iconic Western hero that inspired Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, in the Serbio Corbucci-directed Django that same year, 1966.
    "The first time I came to Hollywood was 1966. It was beautiful.
    Every night partying with Paul Newman, James Stewart or colleagues of that calibre...Django had just come out in Italy and they called me to film Camelot".
    Camelot, the Parma-born former sex symbol said, where he met Redgrave and would go on to have a son Carlo, now an actor, with her, "was John F. Kennedy's favourite film." Nero said he was probably not going to accept a much-requested Django sequel now - "I don't feel like getting back on a horse 60 years later, but we'll see" - and said he was looking forward to his next project, 'Black beans and rice', directed by Robert Port, who filmed in his latest hit 1944 - The Battle of Cassino.
    Django has been good to Nero over the years and Spaghetti western cultist Tarantino gave Nero a cameo in the 'Unchained' Jamie Foxx vehicle with Christoph Waltz in 2012, while Italian director Francesca Comencini put him in her Sky serial Django last year.
