Glenn, Wright to update ‘Warriors’

Gang-centered pic nixes guns in favor of fists

Paramount Pictures has tapped scribes John Glenn and Travis Wright to update “The Warriors” for MTV Films and Paramount Pictures.

At MTV Films, Van Toffler, David Gale and Michael Cole are overseeing the project along with Larry Gordon, who produced the original. Paramount’s Brian Witten and prexy John Goldwyn are supervising pic for the studio.

Original centers on a small group of gang members who are falsely accused of murdering a peace-seeking gang leader. They are chased through Gotham’s streets by rival gangs eager for revenge. In their updated version, Glenn and Wright have eliminated guns. The gangs, rather, have turned to an urban hybrid of martial arts and street fighting to settle their differences.

Eighteen months ago, WMA and AMG-repped Wright and Glenn sold the sci-fi actioner “Red World” to Jerry Bruckheimer Films. The duo subsequently refashioned the Fox 2000 adaptation of Jules Verne’s “Journey to the Center of the Earth.”

Last fall, they sold the original series “Black Star” to UPN, with Trilogy Entertainment producing.
