For a while there was talk that Sly Stallone would reprise his role as Machine Gun Joe in the “Death Race” remake. Well, that didn’t happen although the remake did. So now instead of David Carradine we have Jason Statham. Instead of Sylvester Stallone we get Tyrese Gibson?
The movie is still set in the future, but instead of a cross country race in which the participants kill pedestrians, it’s set in a prison and the contestants try to kill each other. [Not to worry, they still found a way to get women involved as “navigators”.] Advance word on the movie hasn’t been too good, but
THIS TRAILER makes me think that advance word might have been a bit harsh. I think it looks like a fun ride.
