Ridley Scott is preparing to immortalise his remake of cult movie THE WARRIORS as the most violent film ever.

The Sopranos writer TERENCE WINTER has signed up to script the reworking of the 1979 classic to help co-producer Scott make his version more gory than the original.

The movie focuses on the Warriors gang who battle their way back to their home territory in New York after being wrongly accused of assassinating a rival clan leader during a truce.

A Hollywood insider says, "The remake will blow spots off the original. It will be really violent."
