Oh. My. Goosenips. Are you sitting down? This news is so good that I almost don’t want to write about it in fear that I will jinx any potential for it to become a reality. Apparently some underpaid genius has concocted the idea to turn the insanely awesome Warriors film… into a TV show… helmed by Captain America/Avengers directors Joe and Anthony Russo!!!!!!!!!!!
The brothers will reimagine Walter Hill’s iconic 1979 film, itself an adaptation of Sol Yurick’s classic novel. Their take will honor the original film while adding its own unique brand of grit, pulp, sex and violence. The Russo brothers will team with writer Frank Baldwin on the series. The Russo brothers will direct the pilot, although no word yet as to any directing commitment beyond that.
YES! YES! OMFsdasadsaG YES!
If you are not yet educated on all things The Warriors then I strongly suggest that you either get your hands on a directors cut of the film, (my preference), or watch the still-awesome original on Netflix RIGHT NOW!
Expect to see more TV chatter around here as, clearly, TV is red hot right now.
