Dark Horizons is reporting that Sylvester Stallone is gearing up to direct a remake of a "different" Charles Bronson film. Early reports indicated that Sly was heading towards a remake of Death Wish, but now it seems he might be directed a redo of The Mechanic instead.

Word is that MGM is currently looking for a younger actor to star alongside Stallone. Apparently they want either Ryan Gosling, Ben Foster, Cillian Murphy, or even Elijah Wood for the project.

The film will revolve around an aging hitman that takes on a younger protege and shows him the ropes. There is no word on when production will start.
