- THE WILD BUNCH
Will Smith is looking to star in and produce a contemporary remake of Sam Peckinpah's 1969 western classic The Wild Bunch.
The original story follows an aging group of outlaws in 1913 looking for one last big score as the "traditional" American West is disappearing around them. It starred William Holden, Ernest Borgnine, Robert Ryan, and Warren Oates.
The Wrap reports that modern remake involves cartels south of the border, and it's "expected to follow a disgraced D.E.A. agent who assembles a team to go after a Mexican drug lord and his fortune."
