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.
