  • First Ronda Rousey in Road House.

    Now we get Willis in Death Wish.

    Not sure which one will suck more. :pukeface:

    Prior to securing Roth, the director’s chair has seen several different names over the years. Israeli filmmakers Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado originally signed on for the project. Then, in 2012, Joe Carnahan was tapped as director but dropped out due to creative differences with MGM and Paramount. He later sent a profane email to MGM in which he called the company’s CEO Jonathan Glickman a “gutless turd.” So yeah, it didn’t end well to say the least.

    With Roth now at the helm, MGM and Paramount have given the project new life. Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (Big Eyes, The People vs. Larry Flynt) wrote the current script, which will be produced by Roger Birnbaum. Bruce Willis will star in the remake, taking on the role played by Charles Bronson in the original. No release date has been set yet.

    The original film, an adaptation of Brian Garfield’s 1972 novel, depicted a man’s revenge spree after his wife is killed and his daughter is sexually assaulted. The role helped revitalized Bronson’s career — perhaps Willis is hoping for similar success.
    In 180 games, Walter Jones was called for 9 holding penalties in the course of 5,703 pass plays.

  • I think some things are best left without a remake. Bruce Willis' career is declining because he is allegedly a major ass and nobody wants to work with him.
