Sean Bean and others drive into Death Race prequel

03.01.2010

While he's probably best known as part of the FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING (or the seemingly infinite "Sharpe's" movies, if you're a Brit), Sean Bean enjoys a paycheck as much as the next guy. Especially when the next guy is Luke Goss, Ving Rhames or Danny Trejo.

Bean has been confirmed as joining that list of DVD-friendly dudes for DEATH RACE 2, the prequel to Paul WS Anderson's recent remake of the Corman classic. Goss dons the pre-Statham mask of Frankenstein for the straight-to-vid flick, currently shooting in South Africa with director Roel Reiné (THE MARINE 2). Frederick Koehler (“Oz,” “Touching Evil”) and Lauren Cohan (“Supernatural”) are also part of the cast, and Anderson is producing.

The official synopsis, as per the just-received press release: DEATH RACE 2 takes place in the very near future, as the United States economy begins to decline and violent crime starts to spiral out of control. To contain the growing criminal population, a vast network of for-profit, private prisons springs up, creating a lawless subculture ruled by gangs, cold-blooded killers and sociopaths. The worst of these prisons is Terminal Island. Convicted cop-killer Carl Lucas arrives on the Island to serve his life sentence just as ruthlessly ambitious television personality September Jones launches the ultimate reality show, Death Race. A brutal prison yard demolition derby that pits prisoners against each other in steel reinforced, heavily armed vehicles, Death Race offers the winner the ultimate prize: freedom — if he can survive to enjoy it. When Lucas signs up to be a driver, the stage is set for the birth of a legendary racer.

Out of that somewhat impressive cast, Bean is the one guy who just doesn't belong. He's played his share of pulpy action figure bad-guys, but I still think he's classier than this.

And he kicked ass in "Ronin."

Wow...

Honestly.. if we forget about the fact that this is a straight-to-dvd film and the whole "prequel" fact..

This sounds really exciting! I mean.. Bean, Goss, Rhames, Trejo.. YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH SUCH TALENTED CAST!

Well.. unless you Uwe Boll haha

although I liked the remake...

I'm not too keen on this. I mean, am I the only one who doesn't see the end coming?

I'm down. DEATH RACE is one of those loud, crunchy, exsplody type movies which are just fun to watch and Bean, as a lover of man meat, is fun to look at.

Would like to see Sean Bean do something more interesting... but hopefully the hbo show he's cast in (A Game Of Thrones) gets picked up. He will be the tits in it for sure!

Awesome cast "...for [a] straight-to-vid flick"

I love “'da Bean” and Luke Goss, Ving Rhames, Danny Trejo ... amazing company this movie keeps.

So... how come this film has a better cast than the original (minus the great McShane) and is going Straight to DVD?!!! That turns potentially awesome to potentially mediocre right off the bat.

With that said, my eyes and ears are still open.
