2011 Killer Elite version is NOT a remake

I know there is some confusion ( based from some message boards I have seen ) as to whether the The Killer Elite movie that is being filmed now is a remake of the 1975 Sam Peckinpah directed movie that starred James Caan, Robert Duvall, Burt Young and Bo Hopkins. It's not.

This version that is filming now, that stars Clive Owen, Jason Statham, Robert DeNiro and Dominic Purcell is based off the Ranulf Fiennes novel about " The Committee " otherwise known as The Feathermen, who are a vigilante group dedicated to solving crimes the police cannot.
The Peckinpah version was based from the novel by Robert Rostand called Monkey In The Middle.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
