Death Wish remake to star Bruce Willis, directed by Big Bad Wolves team

03.04.2016by: Eric Walkuski

DEATH WISH is a movie that is threatened with a remake every few years. Last we heard, Joe Carnahan was close to making it, but that fell apart - much to Carnahan's obvious chagrin. But now it's on again, with a brand new team. Bruce Willis has signed to play lead Paul Kersey, the man who takes on New York City's punks with a vengeance, while RABIES and BIG BAD WOLVES directors Aharon Keshales & Navot Papushado take the helm.

Not sure about you, but the involvement of Keshales and Papushado is way more interesting than that of Willis, who nowadays will do just about anything if he can get a paycheck out of it. The most recent drafts of the script were penned by Dan Gilroy (NIGHTWALKER) and Graham Yost (SPEED) but it's likely a new draft is coming from the directors.

Based on Brian Garfield's book of the same name, DEATH WISH goes like this:

For just a handful of money, they savagely beat Paul's wife and daughter, leaving his wife dead and his daughter comatose. Grief-stricken and forced to reevaluate his views, Benjamin becomes disillusioned with society and plots his revenge on the perpetrators, whom the police are unable to bring to justice. Armed with a revolver and total disregard for his own safety, he sets out to even the score.

Production is rumored to commence in the summer. Paramount and MGM are teaming on the project.
