Mel Gibson is directing a remake of The Wild Bunch

It seems that Mel Gibson is going to direct a new version of Sam Peckinpah’s 1969 film The Wild Bunch. The original is a classic Western full of violence and dangerous men who say and do terrible things. It starred William Holden, Ernest Borgnine, Robert Ryan, Edmond O’Brien, Warren Oates, Jaime Sanchez and Ben Johnson.

Gibson is writing the script with Bryan Bagby. Gibson will be executive producer.

The original followed an ageing outlaw gang on the Mexico–United States border trying to adapt to the changing modern world of 1913.

Gibson is currently working on Destroyer, the WWII drama he will direct that will star Mark Wahlberg, with a script that Rosalind Ross adapted from the John Vukovitz novel. Gibson next stars alongside Colin Farrell in the Tommy Wirkola-directed War Pigs for Millennium.

Gibson has directed the likes of Braveheart, Apocalypto, and Hacksaw Ridge so there is no doubt he will be able to deliver a great looking movie. Will it be a match for Peckinpah’s film? That remains to be seen.

There is no word yet on the cast, so go crazy, so who would you like to see in a new version of The Wild Bunch?

    Absolutely no one that did the remake of Mag 7. Next up a remake of The Great Escape. There is nothing new in Hollywood now that liberals have driven talent out.
