Corman To Produce “Death Race 2050”

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has announced that the legendary Roger Corman is returning to produce “Death Race 2050” which began production earlier this month in Peru.

A reboot of the original 1975 David Carradine and Sylvester Stallone film “Death Race 2000,” the story follows a group of automotive gladiators who earn points for killing pedestrians – and their fellow drivers.

The new film stars Manu Bennett as Frankenstein, Malcolm McDowell as the Chairman, Burt Grinstead, Marci Miller, Folake Olowofoyeku, Anessa Ramsey, Yancy Butler and Charlie Farrell.

G.J. Echternkamp (“Hard Candy”) helms from a script he co-wrote with Matt Yamashita. The film will be available exclusively on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD in 2016.
