Ritchie Wanted For “Cannonball” Remake

Guy Ritchie is rumoured to be in talks for the remake of the classic 80’s action-comedy “Cannonball Run” at Warner Bros. Pictures says The Associated Press.

Ritchie and his “Snatch” star Brad Pitt could be reunited on this new version on the 1981 film which followed a wide variety of eccentric competitors participating in a wild and illegal cross-country car race. Burt Reynolds, Roger Moore, Farrah Fawcett, Dom DeLuise, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. starred.

The new version would shift the action to Europe. Shawn Levy is also thought to have expressed an interest in directing the reboot with his “Night at the Museum” star Ben Stiller.
