Gordon was so taken by the plot that he called the publisher and bought the subsidiary movie rights out of his own pocket. Gordon approached Director Walter Hill to see if he would be interested in making the movie to which Hill responded that he was as it sounded to Hill like it had a good chase atmosphere and a nice simplicity about it.
Hill was very interested in the project but felt that no studio would let them make the movie as it did not lend itself to named actors so the pair decided to make a western called Last Gun instead. However, financing fell through on the movie when they were about 8 weeks away from shooting and the movie was never made.
Gordon had a window open with Paramount to make a movie and so their attention returned to The Warriors but it meant that they had to start shooting immediately. Then Paramount came onto the scene. We agreed on a development deal, and David Shaber went to work on the screenplay.
The way Walter Hill has directed the film, it has a kind of pop-gun violence. This movie is basically an adventure film. The screenplay was solid, but I began to get interested in other ideas in the story, particularly in its allegorical aspects.
I eventually wound up re-writing a lot of it. The novel is a bit more realistic than the film in its portrait of the gang subculture.
We essentially converted that realism and used the gang mainly as a convention to tell a different kind of story. A copy of the script was sent by express messenger to Laszlo so he could read up on it before the interview the following day.
However, following the interview in the top floor suite of the hotel overlooking Central Park, Frank Marshall called the next day to offer the picture to him.
Night-time filming seems to hold a fascination for Walter Hill.
You know, things look altogether different and take on different connotations at night. We did it almost completely on location, in the streets and subway stations of Manhattan and Brooklyn.
And those are nearly impossible situations to control. Hill was based in the Sherry Netherland Hotel near Central Park where he worked on the script and scouted for locations. Hill wanted to use real locations for the movie and not use sound stages which meant that Frank Marshall had to build a good relationship and have extensive meetings with the gang department of the NYPD to find out where they could and could not shoot.
The Transit Authority had a few reservations about screenplay, however they eventually gave us invaluable corporation, allowing us to use real subway stations, including the one at 96th Street and the huge Union Square complex.
The aim of the film was to capture the flavour of what it has always meant to be a member of a gang — the tribal feeling of going into battle together, of loyalty, of support and shared goals. They cast newcomers in the film to maintain the look and feel of real people caught in dangerous situations.
Hill had always felt that the movie never made sense without them as they conveyed the sense and feeling of jeopardy. In order to reduce the cost of shooting, Laszlo suggested that they wet down all the streets they intended to shoot on to save time and money later on. For these reasons, the shot of the intense storm was added early on in the movie.
There were around 5 other films shooting in New York at the time, and that coupled with the low budget made it very difficult for Hill and Gordon to find enough crew to make the picture.
Early on they had to dismiss their first Assistant Director and bring in David O. Frank Marshall recalled some of the first challenges. In fact, Marshall recalls that they only cast actors from New York to make The Warriors true to New York and the kids that were there at the time.
By the time filming began they all felt like partners in an adventure together. Walter Hill wanted The Warriors to be an all-black and hispanic gang but the producers disagreed. Hill realised that this forced him to give the movie a comic-book quality as this was the only way it made the movie to make sense to him.
In contrast, David Harris was cast as an Indian to show the melange of the gang itself. The part of Cochise was the last part to be cast and Harris was cast after about 5 minutes.
