the warriors movie

The Warriors, the comic book-stylized film in which a New York City gang tries to make its way home after being wrongly implicated in a key gang leader’s death, celebrated its 40th anniversary this month.

Initially released to controversy due to copycat violence in some theaters during some of the screenings and the burgeoning presence of real-life gangs roaming New York streets, The Warriors has since become a symbol of pop culture iconography both as a cult classic to generations of fans globally and an early template for the kind of action films that mixed comic book narrative and martial arts-stylized fight sequences.

Wintercon 2016: The Warriors Reunion panel

NY Wintercon took over the Resorts World Casino in NYC earlier this month and one of the main attractions was a full-scale reunion for The Warriors, the 1979 film directed by Walter Hill.

Moderated by The Furies (in spectacular cosplay), the arch rival gang of the Coney Island Warriors, the panel welcomed James Remar (Ajax), Michael Beck (Swan), David Harris (Cochise), Dorsey Wright (Cleon), Terry Michos (Vermin), and Thomas Waites (Fox). The panel was entirely Q&A with fans, which was cool since the Main Stage area was packed with Warriors fans, many in full cosplay.

Roger Hill in The Warriors

If you are not a fan of big budget remakes, then you are not alone. Most remakes if not all of them are considered to be poor contemporary reflections of the original source material. And it doesn’t get any better when a classic film gets reinvented for a TV series.

However, there are a few that manage to shine, and news of the Russo brothers remaking the cult classic The Warriors might be just one of those. A new report says that the Captain America: Civil War sibling directors are going to be working with Paramount Television and Hulu to reimagine the gang film as a series. More on the story below.

Roger Hill

Roger Hill, who had a small but memorable part as Cyrus, the leader of The Riffs, one of the main gangs in Walter Hill’s 1979 cult smash film The Warriors, has died at the age of 65, reports Variety. No cause of death was given.

Hill had a varied career as an actor in off-Broadway productions in the 1970s before he landed the part in The Warriors as that decade came to a close. His character of Cyrus memorably exclaims “Can You Dig It?” to the spellbound denizens of gangs who have gathered for a meeting in New York’s Central Park, which ends in tragedy and accelerates the picture’s narrative. The line has since become a memorable quote in filmdom’s history and instantly recognizable with the film.

The Warriors (1979)The original Warriors standing on the boardwalk in Coney Island, Brooklyn.

Tony Scott (True Romance, Domino) is helming a remake of the 1979 cult classic The Warriors for MTV and Paramount Studios. Scott confirmed that none of the original characters will be featured in his updated version, with the exception of Cyrus, who is murdered in the first 10 minutes of the movie. The flamboyant look of the gangs will also be nixed for a more realistic Bloods and Crips feel and, unlike the original, which was set in a vaguely futuristic New York City, it will take place very much in the present, on the streets of Long Beach, California.
