We’re pretty sure there’s an old saying about a man being judged not by the good things he’s done but by his faults and weaknesses; so if that’s the case, then it’s going to be a really rough night for Bruce Willis. Comedy Central announced on Tuesday that the star of Hudson Hawk/voice behind the […]
It seems they’re taking a turn with the marketing for the re-make of Death Wish. The first few trailers have been incredible generic, so maybe it was time to ramp this thing up a bit. Director Eli Roth released a new trailer today, and it appears to be a red band trailer. So now we […]
When MGM released the first trailer for Eli Roth‘s remake of Death Wish starring Bruce Willis back in August, Bleeding Cool’s Kaitlyn Booth said that the trailer “couldn’t be more generic,” referred to the film as “a blatant cash grab,” and said: “Perhaps this trailer is just poorly cut together, but everything from the plot […]
When the first look at the new Death Wish remake brought to us by Eli Roth dropped yesterday the world didn’t seem to react much. We’d only seen four images plus an interview with Roth but everything he was saying sounded like every other action movie that is out there right now. Now we have […]
There is a remake for Death Wish coming out this November and it stars one of the premiere action heroes; Bruce Willis. Willis, however, hasn’t had a major box office success in quite some time and the movie is being directed by Eli Roth who is known for horror and gore and not action. Yahoo […]
The Bruce Willis lead remake of the 1974 film Death Wish has added two more actors.

The story follows a man named Paul Kersey (Willis) whose world is destroyed by a […]
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly ten or so years ago, Clint Eastwood mentioned he turned down the lead part in Michael Winner‘s Death Wish for a simple reason: he was obvious casting. To him, the story of an architect turned vigilante after the rape and death of his wife would have been more interesting […]
Joe Carnahan left the remake of Death Wish after failing to agree with MGM on who should lead the picture. Word at the time was that the studio wanted Bruce Willis but Carnahan didn't. They also spoke with Brad Pitt and Will Smith, apparently.
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.
From wolves in Alaska to vampires in China.
I’m not the world’s biggest Joe Carnahan fan and I really did not like The A-Team at all, but I have to say, his new picture The Grey is alright by me. It’s at least half an hour too long, occasionally a bit rough and has been padded with some forgettable characters and repetitive episodes […]
