The Warriors TV Show Coming from Captain America Directors

The Warriors TV Show Coming from Captain America Directors
Fans have feared that the 1979 cult classic The Warriors was going to get a remake any day now. It is finally happening, only as a TV show. Though, it appears to have some fan favorite directors behind it. The Russo Brothers, who directed both Captain America: The Winter Solider and this summer's Captain America: Civil War, are teaming up with Paramount and Hulu to get the Coney Island Warriors on the small screen in weekly doses.

The Warriors will be a one-hour drama that reimagines the original movie directed by Walter Hill. That film was based on the seminal coming-of-age novel by Richard Price. According to Deadline, the show will honor the original storyline, while bringing in the Russo's 'unique brand of grit, pulp, sex and violence.'

Writer Frank Baldwin will be helping with scripting duties on The Warriors, working alongside the Russo Brothers on each episode. As of now,

Icons Pirate Commentary: The Warriors with Sean Clark & Rob G!

It’s been a while since we here at Icons Of Fright have been able to host a new “pirate commentary.” And so we were excited when the prospect of this special Warriors one came together. I’ve always been a fan of the film; I have vague memories of seeing it during frequent re-runs on cable. A few years back when the “Ultimate Director’s Cut” came out on Blu-Ray, I picked it up, watched it. Was a little baffled as to why all the terrible comic-book panels were in there, but it’d been so long since I’d seen the original theatrical cut that at the time it didn’t bother me. However, a few months back, I caught that original version on the big screen over at the New Beverly Cinema here in Los Angeles and was blown away by just how great it really is.

'Greatest Event in TV History': Adam Scott remakes 'Too Close for Comfort' intro

It's happened once again, as the "Greatest Event in TV History" has been unleashed. This time around, Adam Scott and friends recreated the intro to the early 1980s sitcom "Too Close for Comfort," which is what many expected after the teaser image that was released.

Before the show could get underway, they had to introduce the cast and go behind-the-scenes to show how it all was made, of course. Things started off with Jeff Probst essentially apologizing for the last two installments not truly being TV's greatest moment. Instead, he renamed the night "An Event in TV History," which definitely seems more appropriate.

Joining Scott, who played Jim J. Bullock's role in the intro, was Catherine O'Hara (Nancy Dussault), Jon Glaser (Ted Knight), Chelsea Peretti (Deborah Van Valkenburgh) and Kathryn Hahn (Lydia Cornell).

They weren't the only ones getting in on the fun though, as Jason Mantzoukas was the director,

Chicago! Albert Pyun in person with Road To Hell at  the Triple Threat Film Fest!
Several years in the making (a rough cut premiered at Austin's Alamo Drafthouse back in 2008), Road To Hell sees a jaded Cody (Michael Pare) making his way through a surreal, purgatorial landscape where he meets two foul-mouthed female spree-killers (Clare Kramer and Courtney Peldon) who derail his attempts to find redemption after years of fighting an unnamed war. Featuring the music of original Streets composer Jim Steinmann alongside new songs by Anthony Riparetti and performed by The Roxy Gunn Project, with longtime fave Deborah Van Valkenburgh reprising her role as Cody's sassy sister, The Road To Hell offers a dark flipside to the classic rock n roll fable.

365 Days, 100 Films #59 - The Warriors (1979)

The Warriors, 1979.

Directed by Walter Hill.

Starring Michael Beck, James Remar, Deborah Van Valkenburgh and David Patrick Kelly.

Synopsis:

The Warriors have been framed for murder. They must now make their way through New York City back to Coney Island with a bounty on their heads.

Nowhere to run or hide” is the radio message put out by the Riffs, the most powerful gang in New York City. It’s dedicated to The Warriors, “that lively bunch from Coney”. The Rogues, a rival gang, has framed them for the murder of Cyrus, the Riff’s charismatic leader.

The Warriors opens with nine unarmed representatives from each gang in New York City making their way to Van Cortlandt Park. There’s a helluva lot of them. Cyrus had summoned them there to propose a citywide truce. That way they could wrestle control from the police force. United, they’d be stronger.
