Before Top Gun 2, Scott’s hanging with another Wild Bunch

Before Top Gun 2, Scott’s hanging with another Wild Bunch

Earlier this morning we reported that Ridley Scott had signed on to direct a Harrison Ford-less “Blade Runner” sequel/prequel; seems Scott’s filmmaker brother Tony is also going to have his hands full.

Deadline says Scott, whose credits include “Beverly Hills Cop II”, “Domino” and “Top Gun”, has inked a deal with Warner Bros to helm a remake of the classic, “The Wild Bunch”.

His Scott Free partner and brother Tony Scott is also getting serious about a new version of a movie classic. Scott is in talks with Warner Bros to direct a reboot of the 1969 Sam Peckinpah-directed The Wild Bunch. This film becomes one of three or so that Scott is most eager to direct as his follow-up to the Denzel Washington-Chris Pine action film Unstoppable

Before that, Scott wants to direct “Hell’s Angels”, based on an incident a few years back involving the famous biker gang.

though its timing will depend on whether he gets the actor he wants to play gang leader Sonny Barger. I’m told that he wants Jeff Bridges. They’ve not met face to face yet, because Bridges is right now touring his self-titled musical album that he recorded after he won the Oscar playing Bad Blake in Crazy Heart. Once Bridges gets back to film work, he’s booked to star with Ryan Reynolds in Universal’s R.I.P.D. and Warner Bros/Legendary Pictures’ The Seventh Son. If Scott has his heart set on Bridges and the actor says yes, Hell’s Angels won’t get underway until next spring or later. Fox 2000’s Hell’s Angels is set around the Laughlin riots of 2001 when the Angels were caught up in a war with rival gang The Mongols.

And, of course, Cruise is still tinkering away on the “Top Gun” reboot/sequel with moneybags David Ellison.

And on that note…
