Since it’s 2016, it’s very important to remember we are in the golden age of movie and television remakes.
Whether it is a favorite TV show from your childhood, or a classic movie re-done with modern technology, you can bet there is a reboot underway for it.
2003’s S.W.A.T. is next in line as the action thriller starring Samuel L. Jackson, LL Cool J, Colin Ferrell, Michelle Rodriguez and others is being re-done as a series directed by Justin Lin.
The news comes via SlashFilm, as they discuss the original S.W.A.T. series from the early 70’s.
While I obviously was too young to even remember an original S.W.A.T. series from the 70’s, I do remember the original feature film, that gave actors like Colin Ferrel, Michelle Rodriguez and Jeremy Renner their action boosts in Hollywood.
While critics were harsh to the original S.W.A.T. movie, it is a classic action film I certainly enjoyed as it featured a diverse and unique cast full of interesting characters.
While no further information has been released about Justin Lin’s new series, we can certainly expect big things, as Justin Lin was also behind the recent Fast & Furious films as well as taking the helm of Star Trek Beyond.
With a director in charge like that, you can expect a very cinematic theme much more advanced than even the 2003 movie had to offer.
That being said, what type of featured cast would you like to see in the upcoming S.W.A.T. series remake ran by Justin Lin and Shawn Ryan?
