Willis Gets His "Death Wish"

11 July 2016 4:27 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Actor Bruce Willis, will star in a remake of "Death Wish", to be directed by Aharon Keshales & Navot Papushado, rebooting director Michael Winner's 1974 vigilante action feature:

The original Paramount Pictures thriller was loosely based on the novel "Death Wish" by author Brian Garfield, following former WWII and Korean war vet, 'Paul Kersey'.

Kersey, a 'liberal' thinking architect, becomes an unstoppable late-night vigilante killer, targeting muggers, after a deadly assault against his wife and daughter pushes him over the deep end.

At the time of its initial release, critics were displeased with the film, considering it an 'immoral threat to society' and an encouragement of 'antisocial behavior'.

Despite the negative reviews, producers sensed the 'primal' appeal of the premise with audiences and released five "Death Wish" films.

Titles include "Death Wish II" (1982), "Death Wish 3" (1985), "Death Wish 4: The Crackdown" (1987) and "Death Wish V: The Face of Death »

DVD Review – The Wicked Lady (1983)

4 July 2016 3:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Wicked Lady, 1983.

Directed by Michael Winner.

Starring Faye Dunaway, Denholm Elliott, Alan Bates, John Gielgud, Glynis Barber, Oliver Tobias, Joan Hickson and Prunella Scales.

Synopsis:

A woman marries into high society after stealing her sister’s fiancé but becomes bored with country life so she turns to highway robbery to get her kicks.

If you caught the Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films documentary from a couple of years back you may remember a sizeable section devoted to 1983’s The Wicked Lady. It may seem odd that a production company like Cannon – mostly known for action, martial arts and horror B-movies such as American Ninja, Invasion U.S.A. and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 – would delve into a period drama remake of a 1945 film but this was no ordinary period piece as The Wicked Lady was adapted and directed by Michael Winner, fresh from his success with »

Eli Roth Will Direct Bruce Willis in Death Wish Remake

20 June 2016 1:05 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this year, Eli Roth signed onto, then quickly departed, the long anticipated big screen adaptation of Meg. Upon exiting the giant killer shark movie, the acclaimed horror director wasn't quick to tell the world what he was doing next instead. Now we have an answer. The man behind the Hostel franchise is going to reboot Death Wish with Bruce Willis already confirmed for the lead role of Paul Kersey.

Death Wish follows nice a mild-mannered liberal, New York City architect Paul Kersey (Charles Bronson), who snaps after intruders break into his home, murdering his wife (Hope Lange) and violently raping his daughter. A business trip to Tucson, Ariz., lands him a gift from a client, a revolver he uses to patrol the streets when he returns home. Frustrated that the police cannot find the intruders, he become a vigilante, gunning down any criminal that crosses his path. The public finds this vigilantism heroic. »

Cannon Films Is Back In Business?

17 February 2016 6:15 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Cannon Films, the iconic independent film studio of the 1970s and 1980s which essentially continued the careers of the likes of Charles Bronson and Chuck Norris through and after their prime, are back - more than twenty years after shutting their doors.

Responsible for the likes of "Masters of the Universe," "Cyborg," "Breakin'," "Cobra," "Lifeforce," "Invasion U.S.A.," "American Ninja," "Death Wish II," and "Bloodsport," the studio is now back with a new slate of movies is on the horizon.

Formed under the new hand of Richard Albiston, Cannon Films Ltd. was established in 2014 and is moving forward with the ideals of former chairman Menahem Golan about putting the artist first. Today comes word of eight films which mark their inaugral slate - "America Ninja Apprentice," "Return of The Delta Force," "U.S. Sniper," "Allan Quatermain and the Jewel of the East," "Curse," "Zombi: They Live," "Writer's Block" and "The Leopard Hunts at Midnight".

Cannon Films Is Back Making Movies

16 February 2016 11:36 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Cannon Films was a giant in the 1970s and 80s. Anyone who grew up in that era has Cannon Films running through their DNA with such cult classics as Masters of the Universe, Cyborg, Revenge of the Ninja, American Ninja, Death Wish II, Bloodsport and so much more.

In 2012, Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films documented the rise and fall of Cannon Films (which you can see on Netflix right now). Towards the end of the documentary, the filmmakers alluded to the fact that the studio was working on a comeback, and we're as happy as anyone to report that today, Cannon Films is back, and a new slate of movies is on the horizon including America Ninja Apprentice, Return of The Delta Force, U.S. Sniper and more.

Back in the 1980's, The Cannon Group Inc., was one of the World's biggest independent motion picture studios, »
