Remake of Cruise/Penn classic in the works


A remake of the Tom Cruise/Sean Penn military drama “Taps” (1981) is in the works.

Frank E. Flowers will write the screenplay with an eye toward directing, says
Variety.

In the Harold Becker-directed original, a group of loyal cadets seize control of their military academy just as construction crews arrive to tear it down and make room for condos. “The political climate and the psyche of the country make it an exciting time to tell that story,” Flowers told Daily Variety. “When you are at war, kids are forced to make decisions normally reserved for adults, like fighting for your country and standing up for what you believe in.”

My only question… why?
