Actor Mel Gibson to direct the remake of 1969 classic The Wild Bunch
The 62-year-old actor-director will also co-write the film's script, alongside Bryan Bagby, and executive produce it, reported Deadline.
The original, directed by Sam Peckinpah, featured an ensemble cast of Wiliam Holden, Ernest Borgnine, Robert Ryan, Edmond O'Brien, Warren Oates, Jaime Sanchez, and Ben Johnson.
The story followed an aging outlaw gang on the Mexico–United States border trying to adapt to the changing modern world of 1913.
Gibson also has World War II action drama "Destroyer" which he will helm. The film, featuring Mark Wahlberg in the lead, is expected to start shooting next year.
