We talked to you on Monday about the DEATH WISH remake and what we thought of it. And now Joe Carnahan is tweeting an update to the story. Here’s the verbiage from his feed:
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. … Refn did a phenomenal job shooting L.A. It took on a different dimension. That’s the key. … The only role I’m writing in DEATH WISH which will mark the ONE time I’ve ever written exclusively for an actor, will be for @FrankGrillo… 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.
What’s the plan Joe? More importantly, why this and not an original revenge film? We’re keeping our eyes on this and will let you know when we have another update.
SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
