Will Smith in Talks for The Wild Bunch Remake

TheWrap.com has recently reported that Will Smith is currently in talks to be a producer and star in Warner Bros. planned remake of the iconic Western film The Wild Bunch, which the studio has been trying to bring back to the big screen for quite some time now.

The studio’s last attempt to bring some life back to the project included tapping the late Tony Scott as director, but Scott passed away before the project materialized, resulting in talks about the film dying down. However, the Smith casting news shows that Warner has not given up on the project, and is still trying to push forward with the remake.

It is said that the remake will take place in a modern-day setting, and will follow a disgraced DEA agent as he tries to take down a Mexican drug lord operating south of the border.
