Warner Bros. Orders Another "Dirty Dozen"

by | March 13, 2006 | Comments

Per Variety, Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow Pictures have announced plans to remake 1967’s "The Dirty Dozen," the classic WWII flick about a ragtag bunch of convicts assigned to a high-risk mission in Germany.

The new script will be updated by a trio of scribes: "Con Air" writer Scott Rosenberg and "Alias" writers Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec. Sound like a good combination? Rosenberg also previously scripted "High Fidelity," "Gone in 60 Seconds," and "Kangaroo Jack," while the "Alias" duo have writing credits on the last three seasons of that soon-to-be cancelled show.

Joel Silver will produce along with newbie producer Susan Downey.

From Variety:

"Downey drafted the scribes after reading a remake the trio wrote of the 1986 daring-mission-pic "Let’s Get Harry." That pic hasn’t been made yet.

"Scott had been hesitant in the past to do a remake of a known title, but they all felt that a modern version could make for a high-testosterone, fun, big movie," Downey said. "We’re giving this version a personal stake. The mission isn’t about finding gold or weapons or blowing up a castle. There is a personal element to it.""

As of yet, the contemporary changes to be made to the thirty-year-old script have not been divulged.
