From Wolfpunching To Paul Kersey?

Nordling here.

With THE GREY opening this weekend, it looks like Joe Carnahan isn't resting on the laurels of that movie, and judging from the many reactions online, people are generally happy with what they got.  But people's ideas may change, considering the negative opinions of remakes going on right now and considering what the L.A. Times put on their site today.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Joe Carnahan's next film could very well be a remake of the Charles Bronson classic DEATH WISH, if Paramount and MGM have their way.  It's even possible that the new DEATH WISH would be a start of a new franchise.

I was really hoping that Carnahan would use any clout from THE GREY to bring KILLING PABLO back into development, and obviously this is from an unnamed source so it's definitely not a certainty yet, but if true it wouldn't be much of a stretch to imagine Liam Neeson playing the iconic Paul Kersey.  That may be too easy, though.  I'd love for Carnahan to cast someone like George Clooney and just go all the way with it.  Who would you cast?

Nordling, out.  Follow me on Twitter!

    Skip the shitty remake and let him make Medellin

    by Mel_Gibsons_Nazi_Dad

  • You need someone who looks normal, even meek, before 'being pushed too far and taking the law into his own hands'. That means you don't want someone who looks like a tough guy or someone who you could easily visualise could potentially kick someone's ass. You need someone who can look like a victim, and who is in fact a victim to begin with, and who can then use that part of themselves as the bait as they go on the warpath. Jeff Goldblum would be another good choice, plus he was in the original as one of the gang, so full circle... My view anyway.

    by liljuniorbrown

    He would be awesome in it but you know what? The thought of Clooney in this role made me laugh at first but the more I thought about it...makes perfect sense. He would kick ass not to mention that Carnahan gets a bad rap. He has made some really good flicks in my opinion.Narc was great and Ateam wasn't horrible for what it was. He's a talented guy

    by JuanSanchez

    The shots showing Neeson actually fighting the alpha male. He straps on the bottles, they rush each other, then we see quick glimpses of them fighting. I don't know if they faked it by cutting in stuff from other parts of the movie or if they shot it but decided to cut it from the actual film or shot it just for the trailer or what. But the ads sold me on that scene. It put me over the top from interested to buying a ticket.

    New York is too gentrified and sterlie for a Death Wish remake.

    by yamayama

    When the original Death Wish came out New York was a grimy city full of ugliness. Now its all yuppie flats and tax collectors pretending to be NYPD. Death Wish would need to be in another city on the downturn. Detroit? Or somewhere affected by the recession with lots of tent cities? Or New Orleans or Louisana? Also agree that Neeson is too domineering to play Kersey. Remember Kersey was an architect who never touched a gun. You need an actor who comes across has slight and insignificant, who is destroyed slowly possessed by anger , hatred and absolute wrath. Michael Douglas nailed it in Falling Down. So we need an actor in his early 50's who looks lived in.

  • Jan. 29, 2012, 3:26 a.m. CST

    Bryan Cranston.

    by yamayama

    Bryan Cranston has the depth and pathos to play Kersey.

  • Jan. 29, 2012, 3:29 a.m. CST

    Also Detroit would be the perfect city for Death wish remake..

    by yamayama

    Cause Detroit has so many beautiful buildings abandoned and laid waste that it would reflect Kerseys job of an architect who designs buildings and cities that people can inhabit. The crumbling city in itself would be Kersey's Nemesis.

    re: wolfpunching and cranston

    by mrgray

    First, although the wolfpunching in the ad IS misleading, if all you took away from that movie is disappointment at the lack of wolfpunch, you don't really appreciate good film writing. The Grey is fucking fantastic. I was tense through the whole thing and every death was heartbreaking. Brilliantly written. It makes you care about guys you ordinarily couldn't give two shits about. Second, Bryan Cranston might've made a good Kersey before Breaking Bad, but casting him at this point would be lazy. Walter White is just a different version of Kersey. How about Kelsey Grammer? His politics somewhat match the 2nd Amendment friendly Death Wish films and he's got the look of a pushover who could be turned into a vigilante.

  • idiots.

    mrgray (SPOILERS)

    by JuanSanchez

    Overall it's a solid film. Neeson is fantastic and the supporting cast is pretty good. The story isn't anything special and I didn't care for the tired asshole character giving the leader a hard time trope, but it's alright. I'm just having a tough time getting over being scammed. And it was more than a punch - if you at the trailer you can see it was an entire fight.

    by gotilk

    You know it to be true. People will expect a tough guy, but someone unassuming, normal, the type that would blend in.... much more effective. If less sympathetic for all the wrong reasons. Cranston may have the chops, but it almost seems too obvious. I could be wrong.

    Jodie Foster has already taken out the trash......

    by cameron

    ......A movie about a vigilante wandering the streets don't seem too exciting when we are used to robots and dudes in tights ripping up half a city in a fight. If they make this, or re-make it whatever, they should concentrate more on the damage caused to make someone do this, like taxi driver, but realistically if it's made by the man that made The Grey it'll star Liam Neeson taking out bad guys with his 'particular set of skills'.....

    Death Wish was Winner's last good film

    by Samson_K

    Bronson was fine but had such a cinematic baggage that when he turned into a killer it had no impact - in fact it was harder to believe that he was an architect. I loved the rumour / truth? that Jack Lemmon was the original choice to play Paul Kersey.

    Brosnan should replace Bronson

    by CARTMANEZ

    i think Sly was circling a DW remake a while ago?

  • The Stallone comments got me confused. Could you see Stallone as Kersey the architect?! I dont. I love Stallone, but hes too much of an action icon to play Kersey. Death Wish is about the gradual process of pure anger, frustration, and eventual revenge consuming an ordinary man trying to do the right thing, in a system that has failed him. Thats why Bryan Cranston came to mind. The Giamatti suggestion is also interesting. Or better still; PHILLIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN.

  • Jan. 29, 2012, 9:56 a.m. CST

    George Clooney

    by slone13

    ...would be a terrible choice. Now someone like Paul Giamatti would be inspired casting.

  • Gibsons about the same age Bronsan was when he did DW 1 Brosnan is few years older but itd still work ok. be cool if Brosnan or Gibson got the role and DW remake was a big Taken like hit and they do sequels every other year like the Bronson DWs. i agree with Nordling - Neeson is too obvious a choice. maybe if he hadnt done Taken then yeah but now itd just seem like another Taken

  • Jan. 29, 2012, 10:05 a.m. CST

    also Caine's "Harry Brown" was a remake of DW in all but name.

    by yamayama

    Whoever makes a new Death Wish franchise should look at Michael Caine's "Harry Brown". Now that is a movie that improved on the concept behind Death Wish and made it superior, due to the "fish out of water" concept. Its the idea of placing an ordinary intelligent man in such a state grief that he is willing to step into a hellish warzone of druggies and gangs to exact his revenge. I could see Phillip Seymour Hoffman pulling that off with gravitas.

    Dirty Harry started out as a film, Death Wish as a book

    by Acquanetta

    So it's not exactly the same thing. Brian Garfield, the author of Death Wish, wasn't happy with Bronson being cast, since the whole idea was to turn a mild-mannered guy into a killer. As Garfield put it, "As soon as Bronson shows up, you expect him to start killing people." However, even though there's an argument for a more faithful adaptation, there's still three main problems with it: 1. It's already been done with Kevin Bacon in Death Sentence. 2. You know the studio isn't planning to make the book- they're trying to repeat the successful movie formula. (After all, they're keeping the "Paul Kersey" name, instead of the "Paul Benjamin" of the book.) 3. Paul Kersey has become an iconic character that Bronson still owns. The studio would probably be better off trying to adapt Garfield's sequel to Death Wish. It's plot revolved around Benjamin/Kersey having to live with the consequences of turning vigilante- such as a copycat vigilante that goes around killing innocent civilians. (Ironically, the book was titled "Death Sentence".)

  • Jan. 29, 2012, 1:29 p.m. CST

    AICN should lose all credibility for praising 'The Grey'

    by SpaghettiWall

    What a fucking trick they pulled on the audience. There is nothing in this film but a bunch of guys getting killed by wolves. I don't give a shit what Nordling says either, you don't really care for the characters aside from Neeson...and that's mainly because you know he's the one who's going to get the job done. And then nothing happens. Joe Carnahan's career should be good as dead.

  • Jan. 29, 2012, 1:32 p.m. CST

    I do agree that...

    by Orbots Commander

    ...a Death Wish remake would need a setting change. If you tried to re-tell that story in modern day New York City, you'd get chuckles from your movie audience. New York of 2012 bears little resemblance to the gritty crime ridden city of the 1970's. Today's NY has a patrolman stationed on virtually every street corner, and the vibe is more 'sanitized family funhouse' than 'big scary city with bad guys'. A more appropriate setting would be, as others have pointed out, Detroit. Maybe even Atlanta or Pittsburgh.

    This movie has been remade too many times under too many different titles. It's a great set of films and yeah, it's a damn cool name for a movie. But I feel this is one of the flicks you just let rest. Nobody is honestly going to squeeze anything else out of this franchise.

    by Rob Taylor

    They tried this a while back with the Straw Dogs remake and that blatantly didn't work. The idea of Kersey is a guy with the propensity for violence, who doesn't even know it till he is doing it. Neeson is too obvious, even Cusak would come across like he did in Con Air (living out a fantasy). One idea that comes to mind is actually use a British actor in the role, someone who brings his family to the "safe" New York only for this to happen. Someone like John Simm or David Tennant, or Tom Hardy...all can turn on menace when they need to and it would be interesting to see the buying of the first gun etc... Making it a guy from a country that doesn't have guns could make it a lot more powerful. As for Dirty Harry, I'm all for Jackman, but they have to keep the 70's setting...

And nobody can replace Bronson. I'd rather see a sequel... maybe make it about Kerseys stepdaughter from DW 5. Kersey is dead and she's still living in NYC(a graveyard scene would be nice, paying a little tribute to Bronson). She and her boyfriend get beaten up and the boyfriend dies, she takes revenge. She could be a smart person with her own radio show. And Jodi Foster should play her. oh wait...

    Neeson doesn't work, he's too tough.

    by DougMcKenzie

    You need an avowed screen wimp to pull it off, not an action star. Remake this with Paul Giamatti!

    I say go for it.

    You can never have enough revenge pulp if you ask me.

  • That way you get something new....well to a degree lol.

    But I think Carnahan is a good fit for the material.

    Keanu Reeves

    by Queefer Sutherland

    definitely should not get the role. If they decide to go younger, maybe Edward Norton, or Timothy Olyphant. If they go older, Ian McShane would be awesome, or if they want somebody a bit younger, perhaps James Gandolfini.

    Whatever happened to his adaptation of White Jazz?

    by i_got_worms

    At one point Clooney was attached and it looked as though it was about to go into production. Now? Nothing. Shame.

    Paul Giamatti

    by JoeHungg

    Beat that..

  • Hope they cast nothing but flawless tits chosen for their various characteristics appropriate to each scene. Whether it's lolling Frazzetta blond about to be raped tits or perky pink nipped slightly freckled kurzey daughter about to be raped before she escapes and kills herself tits- tits need to be scene specific. You can't just throw some fake plastic boobs in there and expect sympathy from the audience.

    David Hyde Pierce

    by TheWrathOfSean

    You could see him go from a soft spoken liberal to a full on vigilante.

    I don't want to hear anyone whining about this remake

    by Sam Lloyd

    I mean, have you guys SEEN the original Death Wish? Good premise, but the acting and script and (especially) soundtrack make it one of the lamest good movies of all time, and one that definitely wouldn't be "harmed" by a reinvention. Especially if Liam's involved, which he totally should be.
