Director Tony Scott (Domino) on his forthcoming remake of Walter Hill’s The Warriors (’79), which will start shooting sometime in ’06: “I see it as Kingdom Of Heaven meets The Warriors because with these gangs…instead of having twenty or thirty guys, I’m going to have three thousand, five thousand guys in the L.A. river beds and it’s going to look like L.A. during the riots. I love the original movie…that’s why I’m in doing this, but I’m not going to copy the original”. Hill’s film,
based on the ancient Greek nonfiction tale “Anabasis,” was about a New York gang trying to make it get home to Coney Island alive after being framed from the murder of an untouchable gang leader. The director’s cut version of Hill’s film came out on DVD on 10.4.
