The Warriors Are Coming To Tv!
Warriors! Come out to play! Although this might not be news to ya anymore, but the Russo brothers are bringing The Warriors to television! Sort of. The Russo brothers will team with Paramount TV and Hulu to turn the film into a one-hour television drama series.
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. The Russo brothers will direct the pilot. However, it has not been announced if they will continue with the series beyond that.
Cyrus, the leader of the most powerful gang in New York City, the Gramercy Riffs, calls a midnight summit for all the area gangs, with all asked to send nine unarmed representatives for the conclave. A gang called The Warriors are blamed for killing Cyrus as he gives his speech. They now have to cross the territory of rivals in order to get to their own ‘hood. The Warriors slowly cross the dangerous Bronx and Manhattan territories, narrowly escaping police and other gangs every step of the way.
The Russo brothers are on a bit of a roll right now with their projects. They have directed the last two Captain America movies, and those have done quite well. They will also be working on Avengers: Infinity War
