Director Joe Carnahan (The Grey) has dropped out of a Death Wish remake, according to Deadline.
Charles Bronson (above) starred in the original 1974 film as a New York man who turns vigilante following the murder of his wife.
Carnahan’s departure is believed to be linked to creative differences over the film’s lead as Paramount Pictures and MGM are said to want Bruce Willis for the part.
“You stick to your guns,” Carnahan wrote on Twitter shortly after the story broke. “You walk what you talk and you only make the things and do the work you love and believe in.”
No word yet on who could be set to take over the directing duties.
