Stallone to remake Death Wish.

This has been floating around my in box for a while, but I have not gotten around to putting it up.

Sylvester Stallone is planning on following his upcoming Rambo film with a remake of Charles Bronson’s 1974 Death Wish.

In the original, Bronson played Paul Kersey, a New York architect. After his family is murdered, Paul becomes a vigilante, taking out muggers and thugs.

In addition to starring, SS will also handle directing duties.

The screenwriting duties are to be handled by Michael Ferris and John Brancato, the duo previously wrote Terminator 3, The Net (and it’s sequel The Net 2.0) as well as the infamous CATWOMAN. Obviously the current writers strike will dictate the timetable for this, but the plan is to start production in spring of 2008.
