The Warriors are a Series


Die Russo Brüder adaptieren Walter Hills 1970er Actionklassiker The Warriors für den Streamingdienst Hulu. Die Warriors gehören mit zu den ikonischsten 70s-Filmen und der Stoff eignet sich hervorragend für eine Serien-Adaption, noch dazu haben die Russos mit Captain America 2+3 zwei der besten Comic-Verfilmungen im Marvel Œuvre abgeliefert und sie haben Produzenten und Writer TV-Erfahrung mit Community und Arrested Development gesammelt. Mit anderen Worten: I totally can dig it!

Joe and Anthony Russo are taking a breather from the Marvel world to adapt cult-classic film The Warriors as a one-hour drama with Paramount TV and Hulu. The brothers will reimagine Walter Hill’s iconic 1979 film, itself an adaptation of Sol Yurick’s classic novel. Their take will honor the original film while adding its own unique brand of grit, pulp, sex and violence. The Russo brothers will team with writer Frank Baldwin on the series. There is no director attached yet.

A battle of gigantic proportions is looming in the neon underground of New York City. The armies of the night number 100,000, they outnumber the police 5 to 1, and tonight they're after the Warriors - a street gang blamed unfairly for a rival gang leader's death. This contemporary action-adventure story takes place at night, underground, in the sub-culture of gang warfare that rages from Coney Island to Manhattan to the Bronx. Members of the Warriors fight for their lives, seek to survive in the urban jungle and learn the meaning of loyalty.
