‘Dances with Wolves’ Sequel Goes Into Production

Simon Wincer is set to direct the film.

A sequel to Dances With Wolves entitled The Holy Road has just gone into pre-production with Simon Wincer at the helm. According to Variety, the film will be produced by Moonstone, Amicus Entertainment and Double Eagle Films.

The plot picks up eleven years after Wolves left off. The Comanche tribe is in steady decline, and the threat of white settlers looms on the horizon. The Holy Road refers to the transcontinental railroad. The Indian population saw it as a symbol of evil.

The film doesn't have a set start date at this time.

    Moviemaniac, you are a complete tool, bignoting yourself about having a Masters Degree in Literature and not understanding that some stories do take a long time to tell. With your short attention span perhaps you should go back to reading Dr Zeuss. By the way, you may want to check your grammar before posting again......retard

    they must be aiming at an older age group, cause not to many younger people will even remember dances with wolves, let alone care about a sequel

    I am hardly retarded. I do not think having a masters degree in Literature qualifies me in any way as being "retarded." I was just simply saying that ANY movie that take that long to tell a story is, in my opinion, not worth watching. And maybe it is just that I really do not care at all for Kevin Costner. Either way, the only 3+ hour movies I will sit through are: King Kong, Titanic, and The Ten Commandments.

    Dances With Wolves is one of my all-time favourite movies but it doesn't really need a sequel...and especially when the story deals with a completely different tribe instead of the sioux!

    yawn... oh 'Dances' with wolves. Sure make it good tho costner. I just can't get past waterworld. this might have made more of an impact if he did this ten years ago... just a thought. I like costner tho, and i hear he likes me too.

    Moviemaniac, What the hell is your problem? "I will never watch the original because it is like 3 hours and 55 minutes." Are you three years old, or just retarded?

    Hope it doesnt give the original a bad name.

    Um, the book, Dances with Wolves, concerned the Comanche people. The movie version, for reasons unknown to me, changed Comanche to Lakota (Sioux). So, is The Holy Road about the Comanche people as stated in the above blurb, or about the Lakota, as in the movie version of Dances? Kinda confusing, huh?

    Dances with Wolves is a terrific film. It dose not need a sequel to help realize that. i agree with you ringwraither. there's just nothing original anymore.

    My hope is it is as good as the first one. As long as it is based on the book, it should be good

    I will never watch the original because it is like 3 hours and 55 minutes. I cannot even begin to imagine how long this one will be. I hope it fails miserably.

    Hey Frenzy! Thanks alot for giving away the plot without a "spoiler" warning. Now there's no reason to go see it. Made me laugh. Thx. :)

    HaHaHa, this is so stupid! Yet another shining example of Hollywood being out of ideas. I wouldn't be surprised if "Lt. Dunbar" goes back in time to stop a meteor from ressurrecting a killer robot, that wants to detonate a nuke to start a cold war on Mars.

    Dances With Wolves is a great stand-alone-film that does not need a sequel. However, the plotline for this sequel does sound interesting. I will wait for more details before making my finally judgment.
