Movie Reboot Ideas I Can Get Behind: “Nighthawks”

When you think of Sylvester Stallone you think of two characters:  Rocky and Rambo.   And then when you think about him some more his run of action films in the 90s come to mind.  Movies like Demolition Man or The Specialist or Assassins top my list.   But there’s one movie that I’ll always consider to be one of his best and that’s the 1981 cops chasing terrorist film Nighthawks.  The movie stars Stallone and Billy Dee Williams as police detectives who are trying to tack down a terrorist in New York City who is played by Rutger Hauer.

It’s one of the best cops chasing bad buy movies you’ll ever see not to mention the awesome Roosevelt Island tram scene that to this day remains one of my all-time favorite hostage scenes.  If you want a movie to reboot, this one certainly qualifies.  While I’m not a big reboot guy in the first place, the fact that the movie is over 30 years old, can be “updated” with regards to technology, and has a black and white cop duo that can easily be recaptured tells me that someone just needs to pull the trigger.   Casting the parts would be a challenge but if you had the right actors in place this could easily be a hit.
