    Wow. I can't believe Hollywood is remaking an old movie. I thought they only did original stuff.

    Bruce Willis will star as Paul Kersey — a role originally played by Charles Bronson — in an upcoming Death Wish remake, directed by Big Bad Wolves‘ Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado, Paramount confirmed to EW.


    The first Death Wish premiered in 1974, and followed a man-turned-vigilante who seeks revenge after his wife is killed and his daughter is sexually assaulted. The film was directed by Michael Winner and based on a Brian Garfield’s 1972 novel of the same name. It went on to spawn four sequels, the most recent being 1994’s Death Wish V: The Face of Death, and also inspired 2007’s Death Sentence.


    Willis — who’s been associated with a new Death Wish since 2013 — most recently starred in 2015’s Extraction and Rock the Kasbah, and has a bit of experience with action films in a similar vein as Death Wish. One of his more notable roles is starring in the Die Hard franchise, a series of five movies about a New York cop who finds himself roped into playing hero when disasters strike.


    The Death Wish remake does not yet have a release date.

    DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — A Qatar-based media group has purchased the film studio Miramax, whose movies include "Pulp Fiction," ''No Country for Old Men" and "The English Patient."

    Financial terms of the deal for Doha-based beIN Media Group were not disclosed in a statement announcing the purchase late Wednesday. The statement said beIN was buying a 100-percent stake in Miramax from investors including Colony Capital and the Qatar Investment Authority.

    Producers Harvey and Bob Weinstein founded Miramax in 1979, naming it after their parents. They built it into one of the most successful independents in the movie business, churning out many of the hits of 1990s independent cinema.

    Walt Disney Co. acquired Miramax in 1993 for some $60 million. Disney sold the studio in 2010 to a group of investors for $660 million.

    It's going to be odd for me too. For years I've been reading the books and the drawings have always been a certain way, to now see him differently is going to take some getting used to.

    This is a joke, nobody wants to invest in original movies anymore? Everyone looking for the safe bets i guess.

    I'm not sure what I'm going to not see first. The Magnificent Seven, Ben Hur, or this.

    Those death wish movies were bad in an awesome way. No one can play it like Bronson.

    I liked the version of King Arthur with Clive Owen and Mads Mikkelsen. Don't need another one.

    None of these need to be redone.

    How the hell are they going to remake a classic like Scarface? :wtf:
    It should be against the law.
