While Mel Gibson is attached to act in several films being sold in Cannes, he is getting closer to the next project he’ll direct, The Wild Bunch. Deadline hears that Michael Fassbender, Jamie Foxx and Peter Dinklage are in early talks to take part in the remake of the 1969 Sam Peckinpah film for Warner Bros.

Brian Bagby wrote the script with Gibson, and Jerry Bruckheimer is producing. Warner Bros is financing and releasing. Deals aren’t done but sources said the film looks on course to begin production in the fall. The film will be Gibson’s first film as director since 2016’s Hacksaw Ridge, which won two Oscars and received four other noms including Best Picture and Best Director.

The original is on Netflix US right now, so... go do that instead.

Well the cast and director inspire confidence, so I'd probably be game.
That said, Peckinpah's original film is an essential viewing.

The original film holds up incredibly well, recently watched it. I'd love a Gibson remake though, I'm sure he can bring the grittiness
