With his new film The Grey gaining some great reviews in both the US and the UK, director Joe Carnahan has all of a sudden become a hot property director. Now, I fully appreciate he deserves it for his latest film, but this is the guy who made Narc, one of the best cop thrillers I have EVER seen. Carnahan has a skill, and the fact he has been hired to remake Death Wish is very good news indeed, just look at what he did with The A-Team.
Death Wish, for all those who don’t know, featured Charles Bronson is one of his most iconic roles as a vigilante out to avenge the brutal attack of his wife and daughter. Carnahan, in my personal opinion, is perfect to recreate such a classic.
The new film is being backed by MGM and Paramount, and will be produced by Jules Daly (The Grey) along with Ridley and Tony Scot’s Scott Free Productions. No other info is available at this time.
