    Mel Gibson Set To Remake The Wild Bunch

    [Hidden link. Register to see links.]

    Something of a bombshell news. If it was someone else I'd scream sacrilege, but Gibson might be enough of a lunatic to pull it off.

    Why? The original is damn near perfect. What's he going to improve upon?

    To be clear, Peckinpah is in my top 10 favorite directors. I guess Gibson doesn't necessarily have to do it to improve anything. It most certainly won't be the milestone Peckinpah's was, but it could be it's own thing. I'm not against remakes per se, it's just that so many of them are done very poorly and that induces a sort of an general odium.

    The only big draw I see is that Gibson knows to handle screen violence very well... but at the same time I'd wish he'd do an original western in that style, rather than a remake.

    I can't imagine that Gibson could do better than Peckinpah, but we'll see...

    Mel and Gibson are a wild bunch of their own. I'd rather see that movie than a remake.
    BOLDLY GOING NOWHERE FAST!
