Heat Vision | THR is reporting that Warner Brothers is looking seriously into rebooting/remaking several properties. They include Lethal Weapon, The Wild Bunch and Tarzan. Here’s an excerpt from Heat Vision’s article:
Are you ready for a Lethal Weapon reboot? How about a remake of The Wild Bunch?
Those are some of the few high-profile titles now getting a new lease on life at Warner Bros. due to the year-end departure of longtime studio executive Jessica Goodman. During her 13-year tenure, the executive vp oversaw such projects as Watchmen, Training Day and the upcoming Green Lantern. Since her departure, the studio’s top brass has reassigned her portfolio among several other execs.
In the file were long-in-development remakes of The Dirty Dozen and Oh, God, as well as Tarzan — titles that have been active in recent years but haven’t come together with the right talent to score the elusive green light. Also in the mix are a reboots of the Mel Gibson-Danny Glover franchise Lethal Weapon, as well as remakes of Westworld and The Wild Bunch.
The properties will now get fresh and hungry eyes — and talent agents are already chatting up the potential projects and listing clients they can pitch for directing or writing gigs.
