Tony Scott is in negotiations to remake Sam Peckinpah's 1969 western The Wild Bunch. The original film set in 1913, starred William Holden, Ernest Borgnine, Edmond O'Brien, Ben Johnson & Warren Oates as a rogue band of aging outlaws existing on the periphery of the Texas-Mexico border in the fading days of the wild west. The original was actually noted for its explicit use of violence at that time. There is not much info out there on potential castings or whether the film will reimagine the setting or if it will remain a straightforward period remake. In the meantime Scott is focusing on Hell's Angels, a narrative history of the infamous motorcycle gang that will be based on the book by founding member Sonny Barger. Deadline broke the story.
