Walter Hill’s cult classic The Warriors, which was based upon the novel by Sol Yurick, will be getting a TV series adaptation on Hulu courtesy of the Russo brothers, whom poweteers know as the directors of the last two Captain America films and the next two Avengers films. The original film, released in 1979 told the tale of the Warriors gang as they had to fight their way back to their home base of Coney Island after being framed for the murder of a charismatic gang leader. The film became famous for its outlandish gang member outfits. The film was quite controversial for its day, as acts of violence broke out in a small amount of theaters showing the film. The film gained a following among hip hoppers as well. Craig Mack’s Flava in ya ear remix video opened with the familiar “come out and play” bottle clacking, and the video for Jim Jones/Diplomat’s “Crunk Music” featured scenes inspired by the film. As of now not much is known about the film save that the directors promise that it will “honor the original film while adding its own unique brand of grit, pulp, sex and violence.” Coincidentally, today is also the day that Rockstar’s critically acclaimed video game adaptation is available on the PLaystation 4 as a Playstation 2 classic title. The 2005 brawler served as a prologue to the film, and players got an in-depth look at the Warrior’s world. The game features 1080p upscaling as well as trophies. If you’re a fan of the movie, you’ll want to check it out.
