Remo Williams To Return To The Big Screen In ‘The Destroyer’
  |  @   |  

Columbia Pictures and producers Charles Roven (The Dark Knight) and Steve Chasman (The Transporter) have announced that they will be bringing a brand new film called The Destroyer to theaters. The movie will be based on The Destroyer book series featuring fictional action star Remo Williams.

The movie will be an origins tale about Remo Williams, a New Jersey cop who is wrongfully convicted of a crime he did not commit, and is sentenced to death. His death is ultimately faked and he moves on under the name the Destroyer, where he joins an group of assassins put together by the government to handle certain situations, while also trying to figure out who framed him so he can obtain his revenge.

The first book of The Destroyer series was seen in 1971, with hundreds of Remo Williams offerings since then. One movie has already made based on the character, called Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins. That movie was released in 1985 and starred Fred Ward and Wilford Brimley; it followed the above-mentioned storyline.

Brothers Charley and Vlas Parlapanides have been hired to write the script. They’re currently penning the script for the Greek mythology epic War of Gods, which has Tarsem Singh set to direct.

The rights to all of the stories are in possession of Columbia Pictures and Atlas Entertainment. This particular movie will, again, be an origins story — but it also means that they could be cautiously approaching a potential franchise venture.

  1. So, perhaps the title of this new movie should be:

    Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins…Again!

  2. Instead of sequels and remakes, we need a new movie category: The reboot!

  3. If they make it the way it should be made, this could be huge. If they go the way they went last time, it will not be worth watching. This movie could explode if they use CGI and do it big budget.
