Joe Carnahan Cans Death Wish Because He Didn’t Want Bruce Willis To Star

Another project has fallen foul of those infamous ‘creative differences.’ Happens all the time – and so often with this particular flavour too, a dispute over the lead actor.

According to Deadline, Joe Carnahan and Paramount-MGM have fallen out over their proposed Death Wish do-over and Carnahan is moving on. The money wanted Bruce Willis but the director had other ideas.

But better ideas? Well, I’ll be watching Carnahan’s twitter feed to find out who he was thinking of. I don’t think he’ll be keeping it secret forever.

Here’s his first comment, published in the last few minutes:

You stick to your guns. You walk what you talk and you only make the things and do the work you love and believe in.

Well said that man. My hat’s off.

Next up for Carnahan? Well, he’s working on an adaptation of Mark Millar’s Superior, was toying with a movie version of Chinese vampires story Undying Love, and could be taking over Narco Sub, a project that Tony Scott was working on before he passed away.

Now, here’s Jack Perez chatting with Carnahan in the appropriately-named video series, Hollywood Trenches. Seems like a good time to bring this up.
