    The Warriors - remake

    This is gonna suck:

    The Warriors is being remade by MTV Productions in conjunction with Paramount Pictures. This movie isn't strictly a remake since it is going to be set in Los Angeles in 2008 and none of the characters or gangs from the original movie will be in it. Yes that's right, no Ajax, no Swan, no Orphans or Baseball Furies! In fact the only similarities with the original movie are the title, the name of The Warriors gang, and the basic plot. Rumour has it that Cyrus will still be the name of the guy who called the meeting. Expect the movie to be released some time in 2008.

    Terence Winter, a writer and executive producer of The Sopranos has been drafted into The Warriors gang. The scribe will write the remake of the 1979 street-gang classic that Tony Scott is directing for MTV Films and Scott Free Prods. Paramount Pictures is distributing. Scott's version will follow the outline of the first film -- in which a gang leader is assassinated during a truce, and The Warriors, wrongly accused of the assassination, must make their way home through hostile gang territories -- while updating the heightened reality of the original film for contemporary audiences. The original was directed by Walter Hill and was written by Hill and David Shaber. David Gale is producing with Scott, while MTV Films' Van Toffler is executive producing with Skip Chaisson. Winter was Emmy-nominated five times for his work on Sopranos. In 2002, he won a WGA Award in the television category that he shared with writer Timothy Van Patten for writing the Pine Barrens episode of the HBO series. Winter is repped by CAA.

    I heard the about this remake a while ago and then heard it was not going to happen. Looks like it is. All I can say is fuck this remake up the ass. The Warriors is one of my all time favorites. What a shame.

    Thoughts?

    Ugh, there's no way they could ever recreate the atmosphere of the movie or even touch upon how badass the original was. It's going to be the Assault on Precinct 13 remake all over again, but probably worse.

    For the most part though, MTV Films does suck but they have put out some great movies like Better Luck Tomorrow, Election, The Wood, and Orange County.

    i have to admit i would be willin for a remake..... but done with the original script that they talked about from the original film where most of the warriors dont make it....also included more of the original gangs that where only seen at the meeting, they would also have to make it as great as the original

    I would have liked to have seen an updated version of The Warriors (w/ the original characters, gangs, ect).

    And I might even see this one, although I wish they'd just call it something else. I'm kind of hoping to see something along the lines of Running Scared (style wise). Gritty, bloody, ect.

    I'm usually one of the folk who don't mind a remake... but this is an exception. This is gonna suck.

    The original doesn't need a remake to begin with, but I was gonna do a remake, it wouldn't be set in present day... You can't keep true to the original material and have it set in modern day... the gangs simply don't fit the style of the present. So they drop the gangs in this remake and utterly gut the movie of what makes it "The Warriors".

    It would only work if it was set in the past... or possssibly in a cyber-punk kinda future setting.

    Whatever the case may be... fuck this remake...

    I think you're underestimating just how lazy I am. You have to mail those things back! I don't think i've ever mailed anything in my life! Do you have any idea how many steps you gotta take to make it to the mail box?
