Death Race revs up?

03.27.2007
Director Paul WS Anderson is probably best known for slapping the quality out of major franchises such as RESIDENT EVIL and ALIEN vs PREDATOR, but he apparently won't get the chance to do the same with a movie based on the CASTLEVANIA videogame series.

Anderson (a noted videogame enthusiast and slightly more gifted filmmaker than Uwe Boll) was attached to adapt a live-action version of the vampire-battling action games, but according to Dread Central he is no longer involved with the project. Instead he'll apparently be focusing on the remake of DEATH RACE 2000, which has been slowly inching toward the starting line for years.

For those who might have missed the original superviolent 1975 cult flick (featuring what may be Sylvester Stallone's finest work), the satirical DEATH RACE 2000 follows futuristic racers in a road competition where they rack up points by driving over pedestrians.
Extra Tidbit: Before parting with Paramount, diminutive superstar Tom Cruise was producing the DEATH RACE remake and considering getting behind the wheel as the star.

death race is LOL

the thing is, this project will be all big special computer effects with idiot Anderson directing. I hope he keeps it with traditional cheesy as hell gore, blood packs and horribly, horribly designed and painted cars. The cheesier, the better. Don't try to make this serious Anderson, because no one takes it seriously except you.

I would have liked to see Tom Cruise in this. I can just imagine the pleasure on his face as he runs over Matt Lauer and screams "Take that glib boy!"

One of my fondest memories is watching Death Race 2000 without more than the slightest idea of what to expect, and being blown away. Please, God, kill this project now. I don't care if it could technically be done better, in so many ways, but just kill it.
