    Death Wish remake

    Joe Carnahan (Smokin' Aces, The A-Team, The Grey) has been tapped by MGM and Paramount to write and direct a remake of the classic Charles Bronson revenge film Death Wish.

    "The original starred Bronson as Paul Kersey, a liberal architect who morphs into an assassin after his wife and daughter are brutally attacked. Bronson's character then undertakes a one-man mission to hurt and kill a host of criminals on the streets of New York. The movie was a cultural phenomenon of sorts, helping birth the modern action movie and also provoking criticism for its intense violence. "

    Not much else is known about the project.

    http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/movi...eath-wish.html

    I grew up watching the films since my dad was really into Bronson, and I remember how crazy violent they were (to me as a child anyway). I'm not entirely opposed by a remake, especially with Carnahan behind it. I'll keep an open mind until a trailer is released (assuming it even gets that far into production).

    For a while Stalone was attached to this, thought he would have done a pretty good job.

    I love the original 'Death Wish' and I like the first sequel but the rest I can take or leave. Joe Carnahan did a good job with 'The A-Team' and I think he can handle the source material very well here also. Personally, I think Harvey Kietel would be a great choice as Paul Kersey but they will probably go with a younger bigger box office draw.

    I have all the original film's on dvd and liked and enjoyed most of them, i'm not opposed to a remake at all considering who the director is.

    Werd.

    Grew up with the Bronson and the DW flicks. 1 is straight up serious vigilante hard core for the day. 2 was watchable, and still cool as a follow up to its superior predecessor. All the rest are pretty much lazy popcorn action messes.

    I'm down for a remake providing they assemble the right crew.

    Well this suddenly got a lot less interesting. Eli Roth...really?
    Let's inject his typical silly spin on comedy in a revenge flick

    Death Wish: Pancakes

    http://www.joblo.com/movie-news/eli-...uce-willis-322

    Roth has signed a deal to helm the remake that has been in development for a few years now, ever since Joe Carnahan had a take on the material that skewed closer to Brian Garfield's novel of the same name rather than the Charles Bronson movies. However, Carnahan walked away after the studio pushed to make something more action-oriented with Bruce Willis in the starring role. Willis remains attached to the film Roth takes over after BIG BAD WOLVES directors Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado departed for similar reasons that sent Carnahan packing.

    I'd be surprised if Roth actually goes forward with it, because I remember reading in the past about how he doesn't like to direct stuff that he doesn't write himself
