The new Wild Geese

09.22.2007
Grab your Sten submachinegun and a bottle of decent Scotch -- the WILD GEESE are coming back.

A remake of the 1978 action flick is in the works from Hollywood Gang, some of the folks who make 300 such a sweat-slicked sanguine success. The original tough-guy flick followed a group of shady British mercenaries hired to depose a ruthless dictator in Africa with profuse quantities of booze and bullets.

The flick starred perennial drunkard Richard Burton, along with Richard Harris and Roger Moore (probably - and sadly - known to the current generation as Dumbledore and "the prissy Bond", respectively). The plan is to keep the remake set in "the murky London underworld", so expect the filmmakers to chase the current crop of Brit ruffians like Jason Statham, Sean Bean and Vinnie Jones.

Nobody listed parties enough to take Richard Harris and Richard Burton roles. Richdiculous.

"Richard Harris and Roger Moore (probably - and sadly - known to the current generation as Dumbledore and "the prissy Bond", respectively)" Respectively. Respectively! Learn what it means. Richard Harris was the first Dumbledore.

Roger Moore as Dumbledore? When the hell did he ever even have a bit part in a Harry Potter movie, let alone play *him*?

Not to mention this is a remake. Remakes should all go to hell. Except for KING KONG and a very few others.

CLASSIC

This film is a true classic and no Roger Moore the Legend did not come in any of the pancy Harry Potter fliks. I think they should be looking at Pierce Brosnan. Sean Bean and Timothy Dalton well that would be awesome Truly ........awesome. The original wild Geese had one of the best endings i've seen !!!!! The sequel is equally good...if not better.

It was only a matter of time

I had a feeling this was going to happen. I figured they would get Statham, Bean, Clive Owen, and Gerard Butler. That cast would be awesome for a "FInal Option" remake, though!
