Is the new "Walking Tall" a remake

Is this a remake of the true story of Bufford Pusser? I remember the original film back in the 70's, I think. Anyway, I like the guy who plays the villain, he has an intense look.

Yes. But I think it's a very 'loose' remake.

You mean the original didn't include the People's elbow?

Neil McDonough. If you don't know who he is, you need to stop whatever you're doing and check out "Band of Brothers."

He was also in "Boomtown" and Minority Report.
