Warner Bros. Planning a Remake of "The Dirty Dozen"

by | July 6, 2007 | Comments

At first I was completely annoyed when I read the news. Then I heard who was writing the remake, and I felt a little bit better.

It’ll be Zak Penn writing the new rendition of "The Dirty Dozen." The screenwriter started out with a "story by" credit on 1993’s "Last Action Hero." Since then he’s written (or co-written) "PCU," "Inspector Gadget," "Behind Enemy Lines," "X-Men 2," "Suspect Zero," and "X-Men: The Last Stand." He also directed "Incident at Loch Ness" and the upcoming "The Grand."

No word yet on who’ll be directing the remake of the 1967 Robert Aldrich classic, but it should be interesting once the casting reports start rolling in. (The original starred Lee Marvin, Charles Bronson, Ernest Borgnine, and a whole bunch of colorful jailbirds turned war heroes. Definintely give it a rent if you’ve never seen it!)
