First look at Bronson’s Death Wish remake

Director Eli Roth’s remake of Death Wish starring Bruce Willis is getting ready for release later in the year. It feels like a bit of a strange remake given its generic plot and target audience so what the name adds is anyone’s guess.

Willis stars as surgeon Dr. Paul Kersey who is out for revenge after his wife Lucy ((Elisabeth Shue) and daughter Jordan (Camila Morrone) become victims of a home invasion. The story is transplanted from the crime-riddled street of 70s New York over to modern day Chicago, which has been labelled Chiraq in recent years for obvious reasons.

The films pulpy origins should fit in nicely with Roth’s usual approach but with five films in Bronson’s cannon, they’ve got some catching up to do…

No news on a UK release date but as soon as we hear, we’ll let you know.
