Tony Scott tells MyMovies.net that his remake of Walter Hill's 1979 action film, "The Warriors," will take place on the West coast
"The Warriors" is moved. The action drama film, which original version was set in New York City, will take place on the West coast. So Tony Scott told MyMovies.net.
The story of "The Warriors" revolves around the Warriors gang being wrongly accused of assassinating a rival gang leader during a truce and being forced to make their way home through hostile territory. As for the story, Scott said "I see it as 'Kingdom of Heaven' meets 'The Warriors' because with these gangs, instead of having twenty or thirty guys, I'm going to have three thousand, five thousand guys in the LA river beds and it's going to look like LA during the riots."
Further he revealed "I love the original movie, that's why I'm in doing this but I'm not going to copy the original." Scott will later on start working on the Paramount and MTV Films project in 2006.
