USA Network Picks Up Shooter Remake Starring Ryan Phillippe

10 February 2016 12:41 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Just last week I remember watching Shooter at my barber shop as I was waiting to get my haircut, and here I am now, finding out that the 2007 film (not a 80's or 70's film) is being rebooted for the USA network. I don't know what to make of this, but I've been caught off guard by this news.

The show will star Ryan Phillippe as Mark Wahlberg's character Bob Lee Swagger, and co-star Omar Epps... who kinda disappeared off the face of the earth after House. If you are interested in watching this show you should rest easy knowing it's on the USA network, which houses such shows as Mr. Robot, Suits, and Colony, shows that for the most part I've heard are very good.

Shooter will only run for 10 episodes, so it's clear that USA wants to get the story done quick, instead of dragging it out »
