Guy Ritchie is rumored to be interested in remaking the classic 80’s action-comedy Cannonball Run and is in talks with Warner Brothers Pictures to sign on says The Associated Press. The original 1981 film followed a variety of competitors participating in a car race across the United States. That film had a large cast that included Burt Reynolds, Roger Moore, Farrah Fawcett, Dom DeLuise, Jackie Chan, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. The new version would shift the action to Europe.
The rumor also indicates that Ritchie would like his Snatch star Brad Pitt to play the lead in the film. Shawn Levy is also thought to have expressed an interest in directing the reboot with his Night at the Museum star Ben Stiller.
