Carnahan no longer has a Death Wish

February 24th, 2013 by bash Comments


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.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
