DEATH RACE – August 22, 2008

Filed under: Cars, Movies — Tags: — blasterhappy @ 3:24 am

Death Race is an upcoming action film written and directed by Paul W. S. Anderson. The film is a remake of the 1975 film Death Race 2000 and stars Jason Statham in the lead role. The remake had been in development since 2002, though production was delayed by disapproval of early screenplays then placed in turnaround following a dispute between Paramount Pictures and the producer duo Tom Cruise and Paula Wagner. Death Race was acquired by Universal Studios, and Anderson re-joined the project to write and direct. Filming began in Montreal in August 2007, and Death Race is slated for a release on August 22, 2008.

I saw the trailer for this movie when I went to see Hellboy 2 and it looked to be a pretty exciting flick.  I have heard it described as The Running Man meets Transformers.  Though it is produced by Tom Cruise’s Production company I don’t think Scientology will be the underlying tone of this movie.
