With survival thriller â€œThe Greyâ€ in theaters this weekend, director Joe Carnahan already moved on to his projectâ€”the remake of â€œDeath Wish.â€According to the Los Angeles Times, MGM and Paramount Pictures signed Carnahan to write and direct the 1974 film, which starred bad ass actor Charles Bronson as a one-man vigilante who kills criminals relentlessly on the streets of New York.
Representatives from the studios and Carnahan did not provide a comment.
There were more â€œDeath Wishâ€ follow-up films, which all starred Bronson. The last film was â€œDeath Wish V: The Face of Deathâ€ in 1994.
A â€œDeath Wishâ€ film is perfect for Carnahan since heâ€™s very familiar with other shoot emâ€™ up violent films such as â€œThe A-Team,â€ â€œSmokinâ€™ Acesâ€ and â€œBlood, Guts, Bullets and Octane.â€
So it could be a good possible remake.
