Tony Scott Boarding 'The Wild Bunch' While Revving 'Hell's Angels' As Next Pic

Deadline revealed this morning that Ridley Scott was returning to his sci-fi classic Blade Runner.

Scott is in talks with Warner Bros to direct a reboot of the 1969 Sam Peckinpah-directed The Wild Bunch. This film becomes one of three or so that Scott is most eager to direct as his follow-up to the Denzel Washington-Chris Pine action film Unstoppable.

I kinda agree with you. I don't know what they're thinking. I really like westerns but this one needs to be left alone. They need to come up with something new and original and stop making remakes of the old ones.
