Will Smith Eyes Warner Bros. The Wild Bunch Remake

Will Smith The Wild Bunch RemakeWill Smith is back in a gun-slinging mood 14 years after the box office dud The Wild Wild West. Having passed on Quentin Tarantino’s hit spaghetti western Django Unchained, Smith has set his sights on Warner Bros. The Wild Bunch remake, a modern take on the classic western.

The After Earth actor is in talks to star in and produce The Wild Bunch through his production company Overbrook Entertainment, which made The Karate Kid (2010) and Annie (2014) remakes.

The Wild Bunch (1969) starred William Holden, Ernest Borgnine, Robert Ryan, Edmond O’Brien, Warren Oates, Jaime S├ínchez and Ben Johnson.

The original story followed a group of aging outlaws that plan one last score on the Texas-Mexico border as the traditional American West changes around them in 1913.

The remake involves cartels south of the border and is expected to follow a disgraced D.E.A. agent who assembles a team to go after a Mexican drug lord and his fortune. Source: The Wrap.
