Director set for ‘Wolves’ sequel

Simon Wincer signs on to 'The Holy Road'

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

Film, which is being presented to international buyers at AFM, is penned by Michael Blake, who wrote the screenplay for “Wolves” as well as the two novels on which the two films are based.

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.

Wincer most recently helmed the Steven Spielberg-produced Emmy winner “Into the West.” He also directed the Western miniseries “Lonesome Dove.”
