Details On The Paul W.S. Anderson Produced DEATH RACE: FRANKENSTEIN LIVES!!

Merrick here...
SpoilerTV has a breakdown of casting & plot details for DEATH RACE: FRANKENSTEIN LIVES. Written by Tony Giglio, the film will be produced by Paul W.S. Anderson and longtime cohort Jeremy Bolt. No word on a director yet. The new characters include Carl "Luke" Lucas ("handsome and confident, with a hint of danger"), September Jones ("When ratings for her gladiator-style television show begin plummeting, September is quick to come up with the "Death Race" concept" ) , Lists ("nicknamed "Lists" because he's a font of information about almost any subject, quickly spewing lists of details"), and 14K ("combination of Bruce Lee and Genghis Khan"). All of this, and much more, can be found by jumping over to SpoilerTV HERE! I sure did hate P W.S. A's DEATH RACE remake...which seemed to miss the point of the concept entirely...so I've no love at all for the notion of a follow-up. I blame folks like my buddy Chris, who actually liked the damn thing (which I don't understand - he's usually a very rational, intelligent person). This is all his fault.

    by sfgeek

    But Statham is Statham. And Swearengen was in there... not bad at all. However, I get the distinct impression that a reprisal of roles is not in the cards. Bummer.

    It was a reasonably entertaining film...

    by REVENGE_of_FETT

    It just wasn't awesome. I would welcome a sequel since it would likely be outside the confines of the prison. A Mad Max-ish Death Race sounds pretty fantastic to me.

    by Cobra--Kai

    The Statham death race was a cheesy prison movie. And like most cheesy prison movies it was pretty watchable with a few beers and low expectations.<p> It did impress me in one sequence particularly, when a big rig appears bristling with guns and then is spectacularly totalled - practical fx not cgi. Great stunt, and the Stath himself is ever likeable.

  • Nov. 13, 2009, 2:21 p.m. CST

    Tried watching the remake on HBO...

    by KillDozer

    but got bored. Kudos for the practical effects, but I can't imagine why they'd bother with a sequel...or prequel...or alternate timeline or whatever the fuck they're doing. It's not like Frankenstein's is a story people are dying to hear more about...

  • Nov. 13, 2009, 2:41 p.m. CST

    Kind of liked the remake

    by JoeD

    I sort of liked the remake for what it was. There were some cool deaths, car chases, and the scene where Statham and Tyrese total the truck is pretty great. It wasn't a good movie. But it was entertaining for an hour and a half on HBO.

  • Nov. 13, 2009, 2:49 p.m. CST

    Hey, Wasted Sperm Anderson, here's an idea

    by Stabby

    How about some female nudity in the sequel like in the original. It's rated R, take advantage of it. Guarantee the simple inclusion of some gratuitous T&A will improve these films a lot.

  • Nov. 13, 2009, 2:54 p.m. CST

    As remakes go, DR wasn't too shabby...

    by HarryCalder

    Let's face it, Corman's Death Race 2000 is awesome fun, but hardly an untouchable, sacred classic. Statham was dependably good, the car stunts kicked some ass (not my entire ass, but more than one cheek). Agreed, Cobra--Kai, big rig sequence was the best. Wish they'd saved that for the finale... Too bad they can't have another David Carradine cameo in the sequel... Frankenstien lives not... *sniff*

    The Death Race remake was a missed opportunity

    by Rob0729

    With the US' obsession with reality TV, they could have had far more fun with a more faithful remake where the racers race across country taking out civilians for points. It would have been a far superior movie.

    re Death Race

    by DocPazuzu

    Bad movie, fully expected to loathe it, but I hate to admit I actually enjoyed the thing (yes, alcohol and friends were involved). <p> The Stath makes anything watchable and the races themselves were impressively staged. As others have mentioned earlier, the pwning of the Juggernaut (*CRUNCH!*) was a standout moment. <p> That having been said, I'm back to fully expecting to hate the sequel--if I ever even see it.

    I enjoyed a lot of the carnage from the remake, I wont say I loved the movie, but I wont be on board with this shitty straight to DVD appeal they're going with. And I was happy the day I saw Anderson get off the Castlevania line, but now he wants back in, and I want him dead. People tend to forget the guy directed Mortal Kombat, he could've banked off the fact he actually made a decent movie for once with this remake, but now he's back to his old fucking ways with Resident Evil: Afterlife.

    by Red Ned Lynch

    ...compared to the original. It was bad in and of itself. I mean sure it had none of the humor or satire of the original, Water Sports Anderson doesn't know those words. And sure it jettisoned the colorful, mythic racers from the first movie and replaced them with generic central casting menu items, because Water Sports doesn't know what characters are. But it also had no real internal logic, credible tension or scope. Pretty weak sauce, and I'm a Statham fan. A McShane and Allen fan, too. But that remake? That was some halfhearted and listless crap right there. Can't wait for the sequel.

    to my surprise

    by Vern

    I liked DEATH RACE. True, it's missing alot of what I like about the original, but it's actually really well structured b-movie material that hits all the right notes for that type of story and builds to a good climax. Statham and Tyrese are game, Joan Allen is hilariously over the top, there are more non–cgi car stunts than any recent movie other than DEATH PROOF, and despite what I had heard the races were easy to follow and good. Also there was that ridiculous killer bus with all the guns and shit.<p> A prequel is a fucking horrible idea though - this was already a prequel to DEATH RACE 2000, there's no reason to continue unless you're gonna progress the Death Race into the more interesting version from Paul Bartel's world where it's not a closed track and you run over pedestrians for points. Like an evil Speed Racer. Also I liked where Frankenstein and Machine Gun Joe ended up at the end, it would be better to follow up on them. And finally, the Frankenstein from the beginning of the movie was voiced by David Carradine, so it would be kind of insulting to have some dumb DTV actor take over. Unless it's Dolph.

  • Nov. 14, 2009, 3:24 a.m. CST

    As usual, Vern is correct

    by ImMorganFreeman

    I was prepared to make the same points, sans Dolph reference. (Although I should've thought of oneon general principle). Anyway, Vern's correct, the movie's not half bad, and the Dreadnought comes at just the right moment when you think that the movie could become really stupid or kinda awesome. But a prequel is a terrible idea.

Better having someone making movies for us that gives a shit, that it being assembled by a bunch of accountants and marketing jerks. Give him a break for god's sake - and if you don't like it, why don't you haul your lardy ass out of your Lay-Z-boy and go make a movie yourself...

    Paul W.S. Anderson and deathrace

    by palewook

    Paul W.S. Anderson tends to be the guy that makes movies that geeks want to like but ultimately leaving you unfulfilled. Paul W.S. Anderson is like the diet-coke of directors. And most of continue to watch his films hoping one day he finally perfects his formula. <p> As for the deathrace remake, I didn't loath it, didn't love it, and probably didn't like it. I did watch it though. Hard to say what exactly is wrong with the film. The plot, the changes, the director, the over used common effect shots of stuff racing in and out of flames. Paul W.S. Anderson made a dumb deathrace movie. Not that the original deathrace was shakespeare. It did manage a little biting humor though. Some of which might have inspired future films like robocop. Whereas Anderson stripped the soul out of his remake.

  • Nov. 15, 2009, 7:56 a.m. CST

    Event Horizon

    by palewook

    as mentioned above its a miss too. BUT anderson almost made a classic with that film. He just failed tying all act 2/3 into a solid plotline. hellraiser in space failed. near miss. probably the best film anderson has done, and it might be a 2.5 stars out of 5.

  • Nov. 15, 2009, 8:09 a.m. CST

    palewook I couldn't agree more

    by NomoredirtyjokespleaseweareYanks

    it comes so close, yet is missing something to actually make it decent. Some of the imagery in the hallucinations was hardcore along with some fantastic design work. I think thats the closest he will get to an original work.

    Death Race was Average

    by Captain RawBeard

    After watching both Death Race and Transporter 3 back to back (I was disappointed with both) I thought they should mixed the 2 together to make a much better film. Contestants are forced against their will to race across America in cars equipped with guns etc etc but each contestant has been tagged with an explosive device that will trigger if removed/tampered etc etc, bit generic but would be much better than that prison crap plotline.

    Good point, I'll concede to that.<P> I still didn't dislike it, and to be honest I liked the theme in the movie of invasive media-dominated culture (although hardly original).<P> Captain Rawbeard's idea is interesting, too bad they couldn't have gone that way.

    it makes sense doesn't it, bringing in the original reality tv stuff. Could include things like if they don't rack up enough kills before the next checkpoint their tags explode, if you finish last the tags explode and borrowing from Transporter 3 if you go over a certain distance from your Car the tags explode.

    I Dunno ...

    ... I watched it and was underwhelmed. This prequel seems like a way to give Frankenstein's origins; but does anyone really care about a character that was only in the movie's first 5 minutes? ... and his version reminded me more of "The Condemned" rather than DR2K (oh snap! yes, I went there...) Besides, he has to shake the entire Resident Evil clusterfuck. The fact that he turned that into a vehicle for Milla is borderline disgusting Even that won't be enough because he'll still carry the AVP stench. Maybe he'll look into a collaboration with Bay & Boll

    <p>Mortal Kombat: Phenominally cool</p><p>Event Horizon: Very cool</p><p>Soldier: Pretty crappy (we have no evidence the script was EVER worth a shit)</p><p>Resident Evil: Quite cool</p><p>RE2: Fairly crappy but first 15 minutes RULED!</p><p>AVP: Pretty cool(Fuck you! It followed the highly praised Dark Horse comics)</p><p>Death Race: Pretty cool</p><p> So he's got a pretty good track record with me.

    REVENGE_of_FETT his track record is irrelevant

    if your opinion is worth jack shit. Fuck these people who think we all deserve an opinion. You just proved them wrong with that dumbass list. <p> All you've proved to me is that abortion should always remain a choice.

    In fact now you have pissed me off with your stupidity

    by NomoredirtyjokespleaseweareYanks

    Anyone who would call Mortal Kombat phenominal needs a reality check.<p> You are stupid. Hopefully you will never have a chance to reproduce. If I ever see your name on talkback chatter I will continue past, uncaring of your thoughts...Chump

    Considering his movies make plenty of bank, it seems it is YOUR opinion that is irrelevant.

    REVENGE_of_FETT...so did Date Movie

    by NomoredirtyjokespleaseweareYanks

    I liked Statham's Death Race

    by just pillow talk

    And I'm not even going to compare it to the original, there's no point. I thought the action scenes were pretty solid, some good quality kills along the way. And yes, Joan Allen was pretty fucking hysterical as the "evil mastermind". <p>All that because of an ice storm....
