A new take on The Dirty Dozen is coming from writer/director David Ayer.

Writer-director David Ayer’s last two films have been commercial successes, albeit not quite matching that with critical acclaim. The films in question are Suicide Squad and Bright, although he also made the quite brilliant End Of Watch and the strong war movie, Fury.

Next on his list, then? It’s a remake of the 1967 war movie The Dirty Dozen, albeit relocated from its original World War II setting.

Ayer is in negotiations to both write and direct the new movie, with Simon Kinberg – who most recently wrote and directed ­X-Men: Dark Phoenix – on producing duties.

The new movie is to be set in the present day, although we’re still some way away from it happening. No casting details or release date news are thus far known.

We’ll keep you posted as we hear more.
