The Bruce Willis lead remake of the 1974 film Death Wish has added two more actors. Vincent D’Onofrio (Marvel’s Daredevil) and Dean Norris (Breaking Bad) have signed on to the new Eli Roth adaptation of the book by Brian Garfield.
The story follows a man named Paul Kersey (Willis) whose world is destroyed by a violent crime against his wife and daughter. When the criminals are not brought to justice, Kersey takes to the streets to hunt them himself.
Charles Bronson played Kersey the first time and in four sequels over twenty years. It’s likely his most memorable role followed by the Mechanic which has already been remade with Jason Statham and has a sequel opening this weekend.
D’Onofrio is set to play Willis’ brother while Norris will be playing Detective Rains. The film begins shooting September 26th.
