‘The Warriors’ is one of many classic, New York City based films of the 70s which made The Bronx and New York City as much of a character in these films as the actual actors.
In conjunction with Paramount and Hulu, The Russo Brothers, “…are taking a breather from the Marvel world to adapt cult-classic film The Warriors as a one-hour drama with Paramount TV and Hulu. The brothers will re-imagine Walter Hill’s iconic 1979 film, itself an adaptation of Sol Yurick’s classic novel of the same name. 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. There is no director attached yet.”
For those who saw the movie, it starts out in The Bronx during a New York City gang summit. Bedlam ensues when the gang leader who called the summit is assassinated and another gang is framed.
After being framed, they end up on a journey back home to Coney Island crossing many enemyenemy lines in various gang territories.
Interesting to see how this turns out and I’m definitely looking forward to watching it.
There’s such love as of late for thethe 70s, I mean just next month the Bronx based ‘The Get Down’ debuts on Netflix depicting life in The Bronx during those years whichwhich birthed hip hop.
