No set release date has been announced as of yet, except a planned release for some time in 2012.

Tony Scott Working On A ‘Wild Bunch’ Remake

While his brother, Ridley, may be the better known and more respected of the two, it appears as though Tony Scott has nabbed him one hell of a project to call his own. Well, kind of.

Deadline is reporting that Scott will helm a remake of the classic film The Wild Bunch for WB.  The Sam Peckinpah classic follows the story of a group of aging outlaws who “try for one last score on the Texas-Mexico border.” The film starred William Holden, Ernest Borgnine, Robert Ryan, and Warren Oates.

The film is one of three projects Scott is currently hard at work on including a project called Hell’s Angels, which will be his next, as well as a sequel/reboot of his beloved film, Top Gun.  Now, two films, his long talked about remake of Potzdamer Platz and the John Grisham adaptation, The Associate would appear all but dead, as they’ve been waiting in the wings for what feels like years now.
