The second sequel to “Death Race” – the second featuring Luke Goss in the lead role – is burning rubber, headed straight for a DVD library (or one of those nifty rental-boxes you find in shopping centers these days) come early 2013. Universal Home Entertainment today released the stateside trailer for “Death Race : Inferno” – which, by all accounts, looks like it lifts the template of “Death Race” and meshes it with “Mad Max”. A bit of fun for the boys!
Get ready for an explosive, action-fueled ride when hardened criminals race for their freedom in vicious new vehicles and face off in the ultimate blood sport in the all-new original feature DEATH RACE 3: INFERNO.
In this all-new original feature film based on the hit franchise, the popular Death Race is transported across the globe to the unforgiving and rugged terrain of South Africa where Frankenstein – the greatest Death Race driver of all time – takes on this ultimate challenge to not only save himself, but his pit crew, as well.
Inspired by Roger Corman’s cult classic thrill ride, DEATH RACE 3: INFERNO marks the return of Luke Goss (Death Race 2, Hellboy 2: The Golden Army, Blade 2), Danny Trejo (Death Race 2, Machete, “Sons of Anarchy”), Ving Rhames (Death Race 2, Mission: Impossible franchise, Pulp Fiction), Fred Koehler (Death Race 1 & 2, “Lost”), Robin Shou (Death Race 1 & 2, Mortal Kombat) and Tanit Phoenix (Death Race 2, “Femme Fatales”). Also, joining the action are Dougray Scott (Mission: Impossible II, “Heist”) and Hlubi Mboya (How to Steal 2 Million).
Director Roel Reiné (Death Race 2, Scorpion King 3) once again takes the wheel of the explosive, action-thrill ride. DEATH RACE 3: INFERNO is produced by Mike Elliott (Death Race 2, Smokin’ Aces 2: Assassins Ball), with Paul W.S. Anderson and Jeremy Bolt serving as executive producers. The screenplay is by Tony Giglio (Death Race 2).
