The first photos have been released from “Death Wish,” the Eli Roth-directed remake of the iconic Charles Bronson vigilante classic that spawned a franchise.
Bruce Willis stars in the film which shifts the action to Chicago from New York. Speaking about the film with Yahoo Movies, Roth says this promises to bring Willis back to his glory days:
“We wanted to bring back that great, classic Bruce Willis we all know and love and just do a fun, badass update of a revered classic. I wanted to bring Bruce back to that ‘Fifth Element,’ ‘Unbreakable,’ ‘Die Hard‘ glory and have him craft another iconic performance, and I really think he did it. I mean I really think this can be his ‘Taken.’ The fun is watching him go crazy and watching someone slowly move the moral goal post.”
“Death Wish” opens on November 22nd.
