Eli Roth has said his Death Wish film will be "The Taken of Bruce Willis films" As if that's not enough he also said this in a recent Yahoo interview
"We wanted to bring back that great, classic Bruce Willis we all know and love and just do a fun, badass update of a revered classic. I wanted to bring Bruce back to that Fifth Element, Unbreakable, Die Hard glory and have him craft another iconic performance, and I really think he did it. I mean I really think this can be his Taken. The fun is watching him go crazy and watching someone slowly move the moral goal post"
"What's interesting about Death Wishis it's not a CIA guy who's coming out of retirement, you know, he's not John Wick, he's not a professional assassin. He's a normal guy, he's a surgeon, he's a dad, he's never picked up a gun in his life. And with each kill as he gets closer to finding the people that did this to his family, he gains a new skill. He gets better and better and better. So by the end of the film he's really much closer to John McClane...The very things that make him a good surgeon are what eventually make him a great killer."
Its been reported that Bruce Willis will learn to use a gun in this version by watching YouTube.
God this is disturbing
The crowdfunded Super Troopers sequel is officially done. Star and Broken Lizard member Kevin Heffernan shared the good news with fans Wednesday. In an extensive write-up chronicling the final days of the post-production process, Heffernan revealed that Fox Searchlight has seen the final product and will begin making release plans soon.
Broken Lizard launched a crowdfunding campaign to fund the long-awaited follow-up back in 2015. In just 30 days, tens of thousands of fans helped the film more than double its goal of $2 million. When the Indiegogo campaign ended, Super Troopers 2 had raised a whopping $4.4 million. At the time, that haul gave the sequel the distinction of being the second-largest crowdfunding project ever. Perks for contributors included advance tickets, signed posters, t-shirts, and "a bunch of other cool shit."
Presumably, Fox Searchlight will want to have Super Troopers 2 in theaters next summer. An official date should be announced shortly.
A sequel series to the classic film “The Karate Kid” is set to launch on YouTube Red.
Currently titled “Cobra Kai,” the series would reunite original film stars Ralph Macchio and William Zabka. The 10-episode, half-hour series, coming to YouTube Red in 2018, picks up thirty years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament. A down-and-out Johnny Lawrence (Zabka) seeks redemption by reopening the infamous Cobra Kai karate dojo, reigniting his rivalry with a now successful Daniel LaRusso (Macchio), who has been struggling to maintain balance in his life without the guidance of his mentor, Mr. Miyagi.
Ohh Hell Yeah!!!
It's a rematch more than 30 years in the making ... Rocky Balboa vs. Ivan Drago -- and it's GOING DOWN in "Creed 2," so says Sylvester Stallone.
Sly teased that Drago's coming back to the big screen for the "Creed" sequel -- but no one's really sure what the storyline will be.
Now, another clue ... with Stallone telling TMZ Sportsthings are definitely going to get violent between Rocky and Drago -- "You know I gotta hit Drago once."
Of course, Drago -- played by Dolph Lundgren -- killed Apollo Creed in "Rocky IV." And the rumblings are that Adonis Creed will fight Drago's kid to get revenge.
Gunn spoke with Collider recently and discussed the upcoming Gaurdians of the Galaxy 3.
He had this to say
It’s been pretty easy,” Gunn said of the scripting process. “The truth is, the first movie is the first act, the second movie is the second act, and the third movie is the third act so I’m tying a lot of stuff together in the third film. We get a lot of answers on a lot of different things, so doing that in an elegant way takes a little bit of grace and elegance. It’s more challenging in that respect writing the third movie than the second movie. I do an incredibly in-depth treatment for every movie. I think of writing a screenplay as creating the body of a human being and you’ve got to start with the skeleton, start with the bones, and you create the bones. You take a lot of time because that’s the actual base of the movie and if you screw that part up, later on down the line, you’re going to have a lot of mistakes. So by creating a really strong foundation for the story, that’s the most important thing. So I write a good treatment that’s probably about 70 pages long. It includes photographs and things like that. So that has been the way I’ve dealt with every movie and this one as well.”
Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 was one of the best films Marvel has done, ever, so I for one cannot wait for part 3
