"The Wild Bunch" Remake

Development continues on an updated remake of director Sam Peckinpah's bloody, award-winning, Old West action feature "The Wild Bunch" (1969), following an aging outlaw gang as they look for one last big score:

"...'Pike Bishop', leader of a gang of crusty outlaws, is seeking retirement with one final score: the robbery of a railroad office containing a cache of silver. But Pike is ambushed by his former partner, 'Deke Thornton', leading a posse of bounty hunters hired and deputized by the railroad. A bloody shootout kills several of the gang.

"Pike escapes with the only survivors, 'Dutch Engstrom', brothers 'Lyle' and T'ector Gorch', and 'Angel'.The loot from the robbery turns out to be a decoy: steel washers instead of silver coin. Glad to be alive, the men reunite with old-timer 'Freddie Sykes' and head for Mexico.

"Pike's men cross the Rio Grande to Angel's old village, dominated by 'General Mapache',

Scorsese and De Niro Discuss Music, Leo, and a Letter from Malick

Scorsese and De Niro Discuss Music, Leo, and a Letter from Malick
The celebrated director-actor duo Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro have been familiar faces on stage at the Tribeca Film Festival De Niro co-founded 18 years ago. Yet it is rare to have the two on the same stage talking about their work like they did yesterday for 90 minutes in front of a packed Beacon Theater crowd.

Officially, it was De Niro interviewing Scorsese, but with Marty curating most of the half dozen clips that were screened it was very much the director framing the conversation and it was clear he had music on his mind. Early in the conversation, Scorsese screened back-to-back clips of Emmylou Harris and The Band performing “Evangeline” from his 1978 concert film “The Last Waltz” and a boxing scene from “Raging Bull” to highlight the role music plays in shaping his work.

Scorsese started by breaking down how the entire concert performance was done in six carefully planned shots.

How to do The Expendables 4

Tom Jolliffe looks ahead to The Expendables 4, and where the film can succeed (or fail)…

There comes a point in any franchise run, where time just sneaks up on it, yoinks the back strap of its undies up and wrenches it up over the head of the franchise in a kind of Atomic wedgie from Hell. If you look at the brief elder statesman action man renaissance with the Expendables franchise, it would seem with the last instalment that, in the West at least, the whole thing had run its course. The only reason we’re even entertaining the seemingly inevitable dive into a fourth instalment, is because the gross in Asia (China in particular) was superb, hoisting the worldwide gross up into impressive figures, in a franchise that won’t be far from hitting the Billion dollar mark.

However, looking at the films, you see a collection of
