Variety is reporting that Hollywood Gang Productions has just signed a deal to remake the classic 1978 action film The Wild Geese, the story of a small band of British mercenaries who are hired to free a jailed African leader.
Rupert Sayers, who is in line to direct, was quoted as saying “It has it all- great characters, action, plot twists and revenge. We are making a tough film, taking ex-British soldiers from the murky London underworld to the battlefields in Africa.”
The original starred Roger Moore, Richard Burton and Richard Harris.
No script writer has been announced. The project’s producer, Gianni Nunnari, is currently in discussions with Warner Brothers to distribute the film.
