Is 2019 the year of reboots?

Deadline reports that Warner Bros. is set to reboot 1991 gangster fave New Jack City. Snowfall actor and filmmaker Malcolm M. Mays is attached to pen the script. No word yet on whether or not the original cast will be returning.

New Jack City follows the rise of Nino Brown (Wesley Snipes), a drug lord in New York City during the crack epidemic, as he becomes the city’s most fearsome gangster. However, his empire is threatened by detective Scotty Appleton (Ice-T), who goes undercover to work for Nino.
