Fox and Flowers Remaking Taps


20th Century Fox and New Regency will remake Taps, the 1981 military drama that starred George C. Scott, Tom Cruise, Timothy Hutton and Sean Penn.

Variety says Frank E. Flowers (Haven) will write the screenplay with an eye toward directing.

In the Harold Becker-directed original, a group of loyal cadets seize control of their military academy just as construction crews arrive to tear it down and make room for condos.
