Cult 1970s movie ‘The Warriors’ to be remade for TV

The Russo brothers will adapt the New York gang film into a one-off drama

Cult 1970s film The Warriors is to be remade for TV.

The movie will be adapted into a one-off drama by Captain America directors the Russo brothers.

According to Deadline, Frank Baldwin will write the script for the new version.

The script will closely follow the original, although it will apparently have its “own unique brand of grit, pulp, sex and violence.”

There are currently no more details available about the plans for The Warriors. It is as yet unknown who will direct or star in the remake, or when it will be released.

The 1979 film was directed by Walter Hill and followed a gang through the seedy streets of New York after they have been falsely accused of a gang leader’s murder. It was based on Sol Yurick’s novel of the same name.
