On the heels of Ridley’s announcement this morning that he will be returning to the world of Blade Runner, Deadline reports that Tony is in talks to take a pass at the 1959 Sam Peckinpah classic The Wild Bunch. The original followed an aging gang of gunslingers as they shoot for one last score near the Mexico border in 1913.
The premise is universal enough that studios have attempted a variety of remakes in different settings, but none have stuck. However, with the Tony Scott name behind it, this iteration could get a fair amount more tractions than earlier attempts.
With most action stars finding themselves approaching old age these days, there is no shortage of talent from which to draw.
