Alicia Malone is a Film Reporter, TV Host, Producer, Writer, Editor, and all around movie geek. She developed her taste for film at a young age, spending many a heady Friday night pajama-clad at the video store, picking out her 7 films for 7 days for $7. Bargain! While at school she created a Film Club, electing herself President. Eventually the School Principal asked her not to get up in assembly to talk about movies anymore.

A couple of days ago we reported that Joe Carnahan had abandoned his plans to go all-serious-filmmaker-like and do a remake of Charles Bronson’s urban actioner “Death Race” (and yesterday, we reported a rumour that Carnahan’s “Grey” star Liam Neeson was the frontrunner to play the hero, Paul Kersey). Less than 48 hours later, Carnahan’s taken to Twitter to chat up his plans for the reboot.

Not surprisingly (every damn filmmaker does it to dissociate themselves with being involved in a remake) Carnahan says his version will be closer in tone to the book, than the Bronson movie.

“Guys. I’m doing Death Wish. But this version is a re-imagining of the book and set in present day Los Angeles. The L.A. of Collateral… It’s on buses, cabs, metro trains. I want to show an unseen version of L.A. L.A. on foot. Prowling. Hunting. The vast emptiness of downtown… [Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn] did a phenomenal job shooting L.A. It took on a different dimension. That’s the key.”

Carnahan also said he’s writing a role for actor Frank Grillo, who also stars in “The Grey”.

Who’s excited for the “Death Wish” remake?
