Guy Ritchie's Dirty Dozen (remake)

On the tails of his success with RockNRolla and assumed with an update version of Sherlock Holmes. Ritchie's Dirty Dozen has been greenlit although it's being put on the back burner for a while. Producers have announced the reason is because of Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, another world war two action flick. They feel if they start production before Tarantino's film is released the first film will steal the thunder. Their main reasoning is that there has been so much coverage with Basterds that people might just ignore a remake of the classic that started it all. It's common for similar films to be released the same year, although one does end up more successful. I already have a clear idea that Tarantino will win the box office between to two movies. Tarantino has managed to gather hardcore fans all over the globe , and I have a feeling Dirty Dozen will end up overshadowed. The same fate has happened to "Sgt. Rock" the comic book adaption that is also similar to Inglourious Bastards. Hopefully Warner Brothers and Joel Silver still plan to make these projects it'll just take a while.

"My Casting Picks" (although most will need voice acting lessons)

-Gerard Butler, Mark Strong, Idris Elba, Steve John Shepard, Robert Downey Jr. , David Leon, Matt King, Daniel Craig, Tom Hardy, Toby Kebbell, Brian Whishaw and Dexter Fletcher. The cast will have to star studded if Ritchie wants a success.
