The original featured Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway while a 1999 remake starred Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo.
Other projects announced for the Russos’ AGBO Films production company were an adaption of a 1978 Japanese anime series called Battle Of The Planet and an Amazon series based on the graphic novel Grimjack Comics.
