Tony Scott's Big Plans for "The Warriors" Remake

Posted: June 3rd, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Tony ScottSubmit Comment
While promoting "The Taking of Pelham 123" remake, director Tony Scott spoke to Rotten Tomatoes about another remake that he's working on, "The Warriors."

"I'm not doing a straight remake," he said. "I love the original Warriors and I'm using the same basic story. It's really still 10 guys stuck at point B and they need to get back to point A. But I'm going to set it in Los Angeles and it's going to be a kind of study of gang culture in LA today."

The plot revolves around a gang - the titular Warriors - framed for killing a gang leader who's attempting to make peace with the area's gangs. Scott explained his switch from the original New York setting. "It's a city which is horizontal. New York is vertical, all skyscrapers, and Los Angeles is horizontal. I'm hoping to get a hundred thousand real gang-members standing on the Vincent Thomas Bridge for one shot."

Scott has been busy pursuing these gang members. "I've been meeting the various gangs as part of the research," he explains. "I never meet the gang leader, always his second-in-command. I have to do this little tap-dance and sell the film to them. I've met them all, Crips, Bloods, The 18th Street Gang, The Vietnamese and so on. The all love The Warriors. So it was, 'yeah, f*ck yeah we'll be in that!'"

Remakes and adaptations are the meat and bones of the movie industry. People need to stop complaining.

I liked the NY feel and it worked because gun possession by gangs was not as rampant as it is today, so you would have to set it in an earlier time to allow for the use of bats, knifes, chains, etc. Also does anyone else think it's a terrible idea to get a bunch of rival gangs together, come on Tony, free punch and pie or what? f*ck it's going to be a f*ckin turf war.
