Hollywood Gang flocks for ‘Geese’

Film unit signs deal for remake

Hollywood Gang Prods. has made a deal to remake “The Wild Geese,” the 1978 film about a group of British mercenaries who are contracted to free an imprisoned African leader.

Rupert Sanders is attached to direct. Hollywood Gang’s Gianni Nunnari will produce. Discussions are under way to bring the film to Warner Bros., where Nunnari was a producer on “300.”

Richard Burton, Roger Moore and Richard Harris starred in the original, which was based on Daniel Carney’s unpublished novel “The Thin White Line.”

New deal came out of a conversation between Nunnari and Sanders in which each recalled the original as a favorite film.

“It has it all: great characters, action, plot twists and revenge,” Sanders said. “We are making a tough film, taking ex-British soldiers from the murky London underworld to the battlefields in Africa.”

Euan Lloyd and Hollywood Gang partner Craig J. Flores will exec produce.

Hollywood Gang is teamed with producer Nick Wechsler on an adaptation of the Warren Ellis graphic novel “Ocean” and has Sylvain White (“Stomp the Yard”) attached to direct an adaptation of the Frank Miller graphic novel “Ronin” at Warner Bros.
