The 1981 Sean Connery movie Outland is getting a remake thanks to Warner Bros. The original western space adventure was set on one of Jupiter’s moons, where a marshall (Connery) investigated a series of mysterious deaths, and had to take on the colony’s corporate administrators when no one else on the moon would help him.Â It was an interesting piece of film – nothing spectacular, and right on par with the 1981 space movie mentality.Â The remake will be quite different.
The story takes place in an orbiting city around the moon, where a cop uncovers a murderous conspiracy endangering the entire city. With a week before his retirement back to Earth, our hero has to choose between walking away with his wife, or taking on a private army with his overachieving ex-partner and wife’s former boyfriend.
Forget a remake of Outland, this sounds like a remake of Lethal Weapon, but in SPAAAAAAAACCCCCCE.
