Tony Scott is Eager to Remake ‘The Wild Bunch’ for Warner Bros

Posted by at 12:04 pm on August 20, 2011

Deadline is reporting that Tony Scott, who is gearing up to also work on Hell’s Angels for Fox 2000, is now “most eager” to direct the Warner Bros remake/reboot, revealed earlier this year, of The Wild Bunch, the 1969 Sam Peckinpah-directed Western that starred William Holden & Ernest Borgnine. Tony Scott’s last film was Unstoppable, and he’s got tons of other projects lined up, including another Top Gun and that Hell’s Angels film, but this could take priority.

One of the key pieces in one of the projects involves casting Jeff Bridges as biker gang leader Sonny Barger in Hell’s Angels, as Bridges has a hell of a lot on his plate, from R.I.P.D. to The Seventh Son, and hasn’t even said yes because he’s still so busy touring with on his concerts and preparing to work on those other two films.  Deadline says Scott is getting “serious about a new version of a movie classic” and is in talks to direct. But he’s also developing a “high priority reinvention of his 1986 Tom Cruise hit Top Gun.”
