Death Wish Remake Gets Comedian Mike Epps

28 September 2016 1:59 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Eli Roth's remake of Death Wish has added yet another veteran actor to its cast. Comedian Mike Epps has joined the movie as Dr. Chris Salgadoa, a friend to Bruce Willis, who is playing Paul Kersey, the lead in the movie. It seems as though he will be playing a character that didn't appear in the original 1974 Death Wish movie.

Deadline broke the news that Mike Epps will be joining the remake, which appears to be getting closer to production as they have recently added a lot more talent to the cast. Vincent D'Onofrio and Dean Norris also recently joined Death Wish. The project finally got going when director Eli Roth came aboard along with Bruce Willis, playing a role originally portrayed by Charles Bronson. Prior to boarding Death Wish, Eli Roth had been attached to direct the giant shark movie Meg, but he exited the project and found »

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 »

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 are coming back and producing American Ninja Apprentice and Return of The Delta Force

19 February 2016 4:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you’re a fan of bad movies, then you’ll probably know The Cannon Group. Throughout the 1980s, they brought us cinema classics like Death Wish 3, Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo, The Apple, Masters of the Universe, Superman IV: The Quest for Peace, American Ninja, Missing in Action, Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 and Delta Force. They also once bought the rights to Spider-Man thinking he was a human spider before realising he was a comic book character and promptly sold the rights back.

The Israeli cousins Yoram Globus and Menahem Golan joined Cannon Films in 1979 and brought their business culture to Hollywood. Whereas most studios would release 8 movies in one year, Cannon would release 40 and used names like Charles Bronson, Chuck Norris, Sylvester Stallone and Jean-Claude Van Damme to sell their movies.

They went out of business in 1994 after a string of unsuccessful movies left them bankrupt, but now they »

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, »
