‘The Wild Bunch’ Remake Finds Its Director In Mel Gibson

Published

on

Over the years, Mel Gibson has been focusing more on behind-the-camera action as a director. While he’s had several offers, the actor has been picky about what to work on next. His newly announced project will take him to the Wild West.

Baby, It’s A Wild World

It was revealed that Gibson would be working on a remake of The Wild Bunch. Released back in 1969, the film follows an outlaw gang surviving in a new world. While the film didn’t make much in the box office, it was nominated for two Oscars. The film has been featured in American Film Institute’s Top 10 Western films list.

The Wild Bunch gained a ton of controversy due to its graphic violence.

A Long Time Coming

The Wild Bunch has been trying to make a return to the big screen for years. In 2011, Warner Bros hired Tony Scott to direct a remake. Following his suicide a year later, the studio placed the remake on the shelf.

Will Smith and Jonathan Jakubowicz were both attached to the project in recent years. Both of their versions featured an updated take on the entire story.

On The Backburner

Warner Bros has been wanting to work with Gibson for a while. They originally offered him the director’s chair for Suicide Squad 2, but he declined. The studio will have to wait a while for The Wild Bunch‘s remake to start. Gibson will be busy working on The Passion of the Christ: Resurrection.

On the acting side, he’s finishing up his work in Boss Level. He’s set to work on the films War Pigs and Every Other Weekend in the near future. Gibson will also be starring in next year’s The Professor and the Madman. He recently tried to get the film release stopped due to a lawsuit with Voltage Pictures. Unfortunately, he lost the case, which means the film gets shipped to theaters as planned.

Neverland Ranch is Back On The Market: Take A Look Around the Amusement Park

Situated in the Santa Ynez Valley of Santa Monica, California, the almost 3,000 acre plot of land upon which Neverland Ranch was constructed has recently been placed back on the market. Nowadays, the one-time residence of international pop sensation Michael Jackson is going by a new name: Sycamore Valley Ranch. Much of the estate is as it was during the 15 years Jackson called it his home, except for a few glaring differences – namely, the removal of the fun-fair rides that gave the home its whimsical name Neverland Ranch. The very last vestiges of where the carousel once spun are still visible as you go through the grounds. Read on for an in-depth view of the ranch.
