Death Race 2 details

11.14.2009

If you enjoyed the superficial car carnage of Paul WS Anderson's DEATH RACE remake but missed the pedestrian slaughter and social satire of the original Corman classic, it doesn't sound like you'll get it in the direct-to-video follow-up either.

According to the casting call that appeared over at Spoiler TV, the DVD sequel is actually a prequel called DEATH RACE: FRANKENSTEIN LIVES. The plot (which sounds more like a remake of Anderson's own movie): "Newly arrived at Terminal Island, a prison for the most nonredeemable of convicts, CARL "LUKE" LUCAS must prove his mettle in a race to the death."

The production is seeking an any-ethnicity actor to wear the Frankenstein mask (now that Jason Statham drove off to happiness with Tyrese Gibson), plus the female villain who dreamed up the Death Race concept as the new reality show craze. They're also seeking random humans to play inmates with names like Big Bill, Gunner, Rocco, Lists and Jesus Luna.

Check out all the details RIGHT HERE.

Extra Tidbit: In the Carradine/Stallone-starring original, the point system for running over pedestrians went something like this: Man - 10 points. Woman -20 points. Teenager - 40 points. Kids under 12 - 70 points. Elderly over 75 - 100 points.

i might have gone to actually see the first one...if they didnt give not only the entire story away, but all the plot twists as well in the first trailer i saw in theaters. that being said i would have only seen it for brainless entertainment and those are types of movies the don't need sequels or prequels.

the first one had its moments... but that doesn't mean it needs a sequel.

The remake was surprisingly entertaining, but I think a lot of that had to do with the fact that Jason Statham kicks ridiculous amounts of ass.

They could make countless DTV prequels if they wanted, considering (the remake explained) Frankenstein is just a mask that one driver puts on to keep his legacy going. Not sure if that's a good thing, but I may check it out.

I like Anderson's remake, and if the cast this right, and get a good director (Rob Schimdt is my vote), this, despite being DTDVD and having a low budget (presumably), could be fun.
