“It’s Judgment Day, Sinners!”
David Ayer (Suicide Squad and Bright) has entered into negotiations with Warner Bros. to direct the reboot of the 1967 classic War movie, The Dirty Dozen.
The original was set during World War 2 and based on the E.M. Nathanson novel. The film centers on a classified mission before the Normandy Invasion, where a group of hardened Allied Army prisoners are trained to conduct a suicide mission by staging an assault on a French chateau, where dozens of high-ranking Nazi’s officers convene.
Lee Marvin lead the ensemble supporting cast consisting of Ernest Borgnine, Charles Bronson, Jim Brown, John Cassavetes, Robert Ryan, Telly Savalas, Robert Webber, and Donald Sutherland.
This remake will not have the same setting as the original and will bring it up to date to appeal to a contemporary market. Ayer will also write the screenplay in which Simon Kinberg will produce alongside Ayer.
Mr. Ayer, all the very best with your film, but no thanks.
