i really can't see stallone filling bronsons shoe's in this. Stallones too beefy to show a transformation from architect to vigilante the way bronson did. and i hope to god there arent any montages.

Well, honestly, I'm against remakes for the most part, but I think Stallone could do it. Just look at Stallones calm demeanor in COP LAND where he honestly showed his acting chops. Personally wise, I think he could pull it off. We'll see though. To work, this film has to have a stellar script and not be exactly frame by frame like the original.

  Stallone probably could pull off the part, but what's the point?  I'm so sick of remakes and the original Death Wish is a pretty famous cult movie.  There's not much to improve on here.  It seems more and more like remakes for the sake of remakes.   It's unheard of to hear about new, original movies these days.  Maybe Bronson can come back from beyond the grave and put the kaybash on this project?  Grin

Hm, don't know how that would work, Sly playing Kersey... Undecided
They're not in the same league, plus, Sly is now older than Bronson in 1974...

I don't agree with Sly not being in the same league as Bronson. Yes, Bronson was a great actor, but he wasn't a great leading man. Sly has proven he can carry a film by himself.

That being said, I'm not for a remake here, but I am interested being a Stallone fan.

  I gotta agree with what Tuco said.  As cool/tough as Bronson was, he wasn't a big man.  Stallone on the other hand is pretty ripped.  I don't see a lot of thugs going after Kersey as played by Stallone.  It'll be interesting to see how this develops though.

This could do with a remake, seeing as the original is terribly dated, but why bother?

These kinds of vigilante films are almost always the same.
And Death Wish is as generic a plot as they come.

I agree FC. We recently had Death Sentence and that was basically like Death Wish.

Death Sentence was what Death Wish 2 was based on but it was a horrible representation of the novel (so i heard). Also, when Death Wish came out at the time it had a impact in new york because all of the crazy shit that was happening at the time. I really do not look forward to this movie being remade with Stallone of all people.

No comment either way. Don't particularly care for Bronson, Stallone or the Death Wish movies, so whatever.
