Goss Death Races

01.05.2010

Out of all the movies that I ever thought needed a prequel, DEATH RACE wasn’t a film that ever crossed my mind. “Guy in mask drives spiky car in circle” wouldn’t seem to have a need for an elaborate backstory, but someone disagrees and now we have DEATH RACE: FRANKENSTEIN LIVES, a direct-to-DVD origin story.

The sad news is that HELLBOY 2’s Luke Goss is attached to star as the lead in the film, which is the story of the man who was Frankenstein before Jason Statham put on the mask. He’s the right-hand man of a notorious mobster, busted for killing a cop during a robbery and in jail enters the death race and becomes a legend.

I know a lot of you think Luke Goss is a very underappreciated actor, as do I, and though it’s great he’s starring in a movie, it’s a big bummer that it’s this one, and it’s not the best career move he could have made.

FRANKENSTEIN LIVES starts shooting in Europe next month, and might be on shelves before the end of the year.

Extra Tidbit: Just make a TWISTED METAL movie instead.

I'm Slightly Onboard

I enjoyed Paul WS Anderson's actioner, and think that a sequel could be fun. Goss is damn good, so this makes me happy.

Can't you see?

This will allow finally the Arrow to have his cameo role in the Death race movie, since he couldnt do it for the previous one.

I dont want a remake but if its still happening he could be a good choice, i agree he is very underrated and underused but so is michael biehn and many others.

Goss shoulda played SNAKE-EYES.

This guy should have played SNAKE-EYES in GI JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA. His body structure is less stocky than Ray Park's and he'd have filled out the costume better. And he's an excellent martial artist as well.

Luke Goss Rocks

Never under estimate Luke turning any movie into a must see. The original with Caradine had a cult following and actually had a plot; I think Luke will do the samething to this story as Caradine did for the original..What ever Statham did to the sequel has nothing to do with what Luke will do to the original story line.We all know Luke is under used in Hollywood so allow him to do his job in this role and prove he can bring any story to life.. I have faith in Luke acting !!!
