Will Smith Looks to Star in The Wild Bunch Remake

by at . Comments

A remake of The Wild Bunch is in the works, and Will Smith is in talks to lead the project.

Warner Bros. is looking to rework the project as a vehicle for the actor, with the original 1969 Sam Peckinpah Western acting as an ensemble film.

The new film will be set in present day, and will follow a disgraced DEA agent as he heads to the Mexican border to steal a Drug Lord's fortune.

A remake of the film has been in the works at Warner for a while, but after the death of director Tony Scott, who was attached to direct, the project was shelved.

Smith, meanwhile, is dealing with an emancipation request from his son Jaden. Perfect time to negotiate a major movie role!
