Mel Gibson will co-write and direct a remake of Sam Peckinpah’s basic 1969 Western The Wild Bunch.
Warner Bros confirmed that Gibson will helm the manufacturing, with Bryan Bagby to co-write the script with him.
It will likely be Gibson’s first time directing since his 2016 Second World Warfare drama Hacksaw Ridge, for which Gibson earned a greatest directing Oscar nomination.
Hacksaw Ridge was nominated for six Academy Awards together with greatest image.
No manufacturing begin or launch date for The Wild Bunch was introduced. Gibson is first prepping a Second World Warfare drama to star Mark Wahlberg.
