"The Warriors" remake reportedly in the works
quote:

The Warriors is a timeless cult classic. Directed by Walter Hill and released in 1979, the film follows a street gang – the titular Warriors – as they attempt to survive the journey from the Bronx to Coney Island after being framed for a murder. It’s a grimy, violent and low budget pic, but the various gangs, the cool soundtrack and energetic visual style have earned it a decent amount of kudos over the years. And now, we’re hearing from our sources – the same ones who told us an Aladdin sequel was in development before it was confirmed – that The Warriors is set to be remade.
quote:

there’s been rumblings for a while now that Paramount were eager to do something with the property. Director Tony Scott had planned a remake of the film at one point set in then modern-day LA, taking inspiration from the LA riots and with the Crips and Bloods taking the place of the Hi-Hats and Baseball Furies.
I remember this, and I think there was a thread about it on this board. It may have had an IMDB page at one point as well. That would have been awful, but
quote:

Crank and Gamer director Mark Neveldine also expressed interest in remaking The Warriors in 2015, saying:
quote:

We just feel like we’re the perfect guys for that job; baseball bats, roller-skates, gangs, the heightened world. We know there’s been fear at some studios like “We make this movie today and gangs are gonna go wild!” And it’s like “Whatever.” You do it in Crank style, people are just gonna laugh and have fun. … We would set it, obviously, five minutes in the future, and we’d really love to build these flamboyant gangs and have fun with them, and have a heightened sense of action and bring all the things that we’ve learned and stolen from Rodriguez and Tarantino and other great directors and put it on the screen.

could be good. I'd actually like to see that movie, even if it wasn't called The Warriors.

This will be so shitty, NY at that time was perfect and the setting will be so trash now, also the gangs will definitely be so watered down now

Doesn’t make sense in the present setting. Smartphones and Uber. They get home immediately.

I would be okay with them remaking it if it was Cyberpunk themed or something.

I’m sure the Ajax character would have lines and attitude changed

re: "The Warriors" remake reportedly in the works
This idea is silly. Any remake of The Warriors is likely to be laughably bad (and not in a good way).


What about a big budget, mini-series of the Anabasis (the source material for The Warriors) for HBO, Netflix or Hulu?

Do it in the correct period - as far as I know, it has never been done. They could option and adapt Michael Curtis Ford's "The Ten Thousand" - which is excellent.

I should be in Hollywood making decisions, frankly.
