Michael Davis digs ‘Outland’

Warner Bros., Hollywood Gang set remake

Warner Bros. and Hollywood Gang Prods. have set “Shoot ‘Em Up” helmer Michael Davis to direct “Outland,” a remake of the 1981 Sean Connery sci-fier.

Chad St. John, who scripted WB drama “The Days Before,” will pen the redo.

The drama revolves around a police marshal stationed at a remote mining colony on Jupiter’s moon Io, where he uncovers a murderous conspiracy threatening the entire Outland with collapse.

Hollywood Gang’s Gianni Nunnari is producing; Craig J. Flores exec produces.

“We loved the original sci-fi film with Sean Connery,” Nunnari said. “At its core, ‘Outland’ is a version of ‘High Noon’ in outer space, as two courageous people take a stand against a gang of ruthless conspirators at the highest level.”

Davis, who wrote as well as directed the Clive Owen action film “Shoot ‘Em Up,” said, “We’re staying true to the thematic heart of ‘Outland’ while expanding the space frontier concept.”
