Joe and Anthony Russo, names you might recognize because of their amazing work in the Marvel Universe, have announced their plans to reboot the cult-classic The Warriors into a one-hour drama series with Paramount and Hulu, according to reports from Deadline.
The Russo’s will work with writer Frank Baldwin however at the moment no director has been hired for the project. Lawrence Gordon, a producer of the original film, will executive-produce the new project, which seeks to “honor the original film while adding its own unique brand of grit, pulp, sex and violence.”
The Warriors is a 1979 film set in a dystopian ‘70s New York which is divided by gangs. After a leader who attempts to unite the street gangs is killed, The Warriors are falsely accused of his murder. The gang then must escape from their rivals who are seeking vengeance.
There is no word yet on when the series will premiere or begin production.
