They’re going to remake the 1968 Steve McQueen classic: Bullit.

No, this is not a joke.

Warner Brothers will be making the movie with Troy director Wolfgang Petersen, producer Joel Silver, and will be written by Cynthia Mort, whose past credits include writing and producing the sitcom Roseanne.

Can you imagine how this will go down? What, are they going to time the release of the film to coincide with the release of some newly redesigned Ford Mustang? Like they did for the BMW Z3 in the James Bond series? Maybe they can get Steven Seagal or hey, Brad Pitt(!!) to play the title character?

BTW, here’s a photo of the 2005 Mustang, which I don’t think will coincide with the release of the film:

Love the car. Hate the idea of a remake.

Ack.
