Just how many episodes can it take to get from Van Cortlandt Park to Coney Island…?
Anthony and Joe Russo, who recently shepherded the box office blockbusters Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Civil War, aim to find out, teaming with Hulu and Paramount TV for a small-screen adaptation of The Warriors, the cult classic 1979 film about New York City gangs.
Per our sister site Deadline, the Russo Brothers will re-imagine the 37-year-old film (which itself was an adaptation of Sol Yurick’s 1965 novel of the same name), while adding their “own unique brand of grit, pulp, sex and violence.”
Frank Baldwin will pen the adaptation, while no director has yet been set to succeed the mighty Walter Hill. Lawrence Gordon, a producer on the original film, will be among the executive producers.
Are you curious to see the Warriors come out and play on Hulu? Or, said differently: “Can you dig it?”
