Now here’s something that I might probably do in the near future…
Something that will be either greatly or partially inspired by both Sergio Leone’s The Good The Bad and The Ugly (1966) as well as a Korean Action Adventure Comedy called The Good The Bad The Weird (2008) which is also inspired by The Good The Bad and The Ugly, even though it’ll also be set in fictional lands, and only instead of three outlaws, it will instead center mainly on three brothers: Scott (The Bad in question), the oldest sibling, Tim (the Ugly or the Weird in question), the middle child, and William (The Good in question), the youngest of the three brothers, for instance, and the story will follow their sibling rivalry over a treasure map that will take the three brothers through the city-kingdom of Townsville (not to be confused–under penalty of death–with The Powerpuff Girls’ fictional hometown), the greatest of westerly kingdoms, and through the land of Shanghara (a land influenced by Japanese and Chinese cultures and motives as well as some Korean influences), the greatest of easterly kingdoms, as well as through the lands in-between Townsville and Shanghara.
You see, Scott (the oldest of the three brothers) and Tim (the middle child) are trying to steal the same treasure map being carried by a young Shangharan woman visiting Townsville (the kingdom to the west). Tim (the Middle Child) ends up getting to the map first and makes off with it, with Scott (the oldest brother) in hot pursuit. William (or Billy, the youngest of the three brothers), who happens to be in the same city-state, catches a glimpse of Scott pursuing his brother Tim and goes after his two brothers.
Along the way from Townsville all the way to Shanghara (the kingdom to the east), the three brothers were all pursued by the respective armies of Townsville and Shanghara and their respective rulers, a gang of bandits from the great plains or so between Townsville and Shanghara and even the aforementioned young Shangharan woman (who understandably wants it back), and throughout this epic chase from Townsville to Shanghara–complete with high quality complex or even large scale action/epic battles and all–it seems like everyone under the sun are willing to chase each other and bring down anyone who stand in their way of this map that might lead them all the way to treasure gold.
The title for all that:
SONG OF THE EAST AND WEST
So what do you think?
In which genre(s) would it fall under?
And what does it all sound like, especially in terms of genre(s)?
