Warner Brothers is remaking the 1981 space Western Outland. The new film, based on the original which starred Sean Connery as a marshal on one of Jupiter’s moons who is investigating mysterious deaths, will be written by Chad St. John and directed by Michael Davis. Hollywood Gang’s Gianni Nunnari is producing and Craig Flores is executive producing.
The new take expands the concept, making it tentpole-sized, while keeping the original’s theme. The story takes place in an orbiting city around the moon, where a cop uncovers a murderous conspiracy endangering the entire city. With a week before his retirement back to Earth, our hero has to choose between walking away with his wife, or taking on a private army with his overachieving ex-partner and wife’s former boyfriend.
