Over the weekend it was http://movieweb.com/joe-carnahan-sets-up-death-wish-remake/announced that The Grey director Joe Carnahan will write and direct a remake of the 1974 revenge classic Death Wish for MGM. Now, the director has taken to his https://twitter.com/#!/carnojoe|Twitter account to talk about the project:
"Guys, I'm doing 'Death Wish.' But this version is a re-imagining of the book and set in present day Los Angeles. The L.A. of 'Collateral.' It's on buses, cabs, metro trains. I want to show an unseen version of L.A. L.A. on foot. Prowling. Hunting. The vast emptiness of downtown."
"Guys, I said I was writing a role for @FrankGrillo. Nobody said anything about Frank playing the Kersey part. Relax folks. We have a plan."
No production date has been revealed for Death Wish.
