Guy Ritchie to direct Sgt. Rock

Sgt. Rock is one of those guys that many people have forgotten about, despite his badass nature. One of the most notable true-to-life comic characters, Rock was, obviously, a Sergeant in the US Army during World War II. His trusty Thompson Submachine gun pulled Luftwaffen planes from the skies and his deft grenade tossing put the end to many a German pillbox. Rock has enjoyed minor popularity over the years, including several relatively modern retellings and reincarnations of his story and now he’s ready for that obvious next step – the big screen.

Producer Joel Silver recently mentioned in an interview that he was moving forward with the flick and name dropped Guy Ritchie (Snatch) as the director. This is pretty awesome news. Number one, we get a Sgt. Rock film, which is awesome. I expect lots of action, lots of explosions, and lots of bullets. Next, Guy Ritchie has within him the ability to be an absolute amazing visual director. You’d be hard pressed not to enjoy Snatch and Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels. Those are some fun movies to watch.

Hopefully we get more of that awesome action for Sgt. Rock rather than some of Ritchie’s later missteps, including anything with Madonna in it and the disappearing, reappearing, did it ever even come out flick – Revolver. Stay tuned for updates, friends.
