Breaking- Mel Gibson all set to Write and Direct the Wild Bunch Remake.

The Expendables was originally made in the year 1969, that’s right Stallone has always said that the Wild Bunch was his muse when writing the Expendables.  And now the original is going to be once again recreated.

Mel Gibson has been chosen by Warner Bros to direct The Wild Bunch, a new version of the 1969 Sam Peckinpah-directed classic Western.

The Wild Bunch, is about  an aging group of outlaws look for one last big score as the traditional American West is disappearing  and the industrial age is taking over. They are pursued by a person led by a former partner they double crossed.

The original starred Wiliam Holden, Ernest Borgnine, Robert Ryan, Edmond O’Brien, Warren Oates, Jaime Sanchez and Ben Johnson.

The original was written by Peckinpah and Walon Green.  Gibson is writing the script with Bryan Bagby.

Gibson has a real knack for directing , Hacksaw ridge won him an academy nominee, and Stallone has gone on record to say that he wanted Gibson to direct Expendables 3.

The Wild bunch has gained cult status over the years and has served as a text book to many films.

Gibson however continues to prep his next Destroyer, the WWII Action drama he is directing and  which star his Daddy’s Home 2 co-star Mark Wahlberg.

Expendables 4 is currently being prepped which is based on the same theme . The news leaves a lot of questions un answered as to what the casting will be like .

We at amdb.in wish the entire team all the very best.
