Ian McShane Talks ‘Death Race’

Empire Online recently caught up with actor Ian McShane to talk about his upcoming film Death Race. The film is a remake of Roger Corman's cult classic Death Race 2000, which is being directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and produced by Tom Cruise.

McShane stated, "This is even more violent. This is set in the future, it's like NASCAR to the death inside prison. On TV. And I play the guy who runs the race, coaches the racers, from inside prison. It's a lot of fun."

McShane is starring as Jason Statham's "super-mechanic" who works for the prison. The actor also mentioned that a "Sexy Beast" sequel could be on the way, "I had lunch with Johnny Hurt and Ray Winstone the other day in LA. We want to do a follow up..."

Death Race was released August 22nd, 2008.
