'Get Hard' Writer-Director Doing 'Cannonball Run' Remake

March 16, 2016


Warner Bros. is finally answering our Dom DeLuise-loving youth's insatiable thirst for another Cannonball Run. A remake of the 1981 comedy, which already birthed a 1984 sequel and a 1989 near-sequel, has been in the works since 2011, when the studio hoped Guy Ritchie would direct a remake with Brad Pitt and some of his Ocean's 11 cronies.
