Mel Gibson To Helm "Wild Bunch" Remake. I get that we're in the era of
lost creativity remakes and reboots, but there are some movies
that do not need to be remade. Sam Peckinpah westerns are definitely on that
list, and The Wild Bunch should be at the top of it. Of course there's nothing
about remaking a movie that actually harms the original, but Peckinpah's movie
was an amazing reflection of its time, and I'd rather see it just stand alone.
The making of The Wild Bunch is a movie unto itself. Peckinpah had the crew sleep under the stars, they drank whiskey for breakfast, went into town on the off hours and got into bar room brawls with the locals...try that today, Mel old buddy
