At one point this thing was supposed to go ahead with Sylvester Stallone, sadly that fell through. Then it was supposed to go ahead from a Joe Carnahan script. But that iteration of the Death Wish remake has also fallen through. And Carnahan has less than enthusiastic words about it in this Collider interview;
“It’s being shot right now, they’re off shooting a version of that script with Bruce Willis, I think in Montreal, maybe Chicago? I’m not sure. It’s, you know, if you don’t have something nice to say, you probably shouldn’t say it. I got a glimpse of that script, that was reported to be kind of a re-engineering of my script, and I would be less than hospitable if I commented on that. And whatever, I think they’re gonna get exactly what they want, and that wasn’t what I was interested in doing, and bully to them for sticking their guns, and I’m content to stick to mine, and that script will live to fight another day. That’s what I’m gonna look forward to, because it’s so radically different from what I did that I’m confident I can rework that into something just as good as it is on the page. It’s really a great script, man.”
Well I guess one thing is positive… Walter_B is appearing in a movie that doesn’t cost $3,000,000, with $2,500,000 of that going to his own bank account. But I don’t know, Bruce Willis is in the dog house, I don’t want him to be the asshole that appeared in a rotten remake of a Big Charlie movie!
