Moviehole can reveal that Luke Goss will star in Universal’s direct-to-DVD prequel to 2008s “Death Race”.
In director Roel ReinÃ©’s “Death Race : Frankenstein Lives”, Goss (“Blade II”, “Hellboy II : The Golden Army”) plays Luke, the young man that donned the ‘Frankenstein’ mask prior to Jensen Ames (Jason Statham’s character in Paul W.S Anderson’s “Death Race”).
Luke, the right-hand man for a notorious mobster, is busted for killing a cop in the process of robbing a bank. Once behind the bars of Terminal Island, the confident newcomer is roped into entering the ‘big race’ by it’s green-eyed producer.
The project reunites Goss with Universal, whom he worked with on “Hellboy II : The Golden Army”.
“Frankenstein Lives”, Written by Tony Giglio, begins shooting in Africa next month.
