Tony Scott To Remake The Wild Bunch
With Ridley Scott announcing recently that he will be directing a new installment in the Blade Runner universe, his brother Tony has also released details to Deadline of his own high-profile project, a remake of the classic Western The Wild Bunch.
The Sam Peckinpah-directed original starred William Holden and Ernest Borgnine and followed a group of older cowboys trying to make their final bank robbery as the Old West starts to disappear. The film was an important film for the 1960s and was seminal for the movement that would be called the “New Hollywood.”
Scott is also planning on remaking another classic film: his own 1986 hit Top Gun.
Scott’s most recent film was the Denzel Washington film Unstoppable from last year. He also has Emma’s War in production, which is being written by Eastern Promises scribe Steven Knight and Hell’s Angels.
