MGM studios the home of the Rocky movies has announced a huge slew of films they will be releasing this year. MGM announced they are releasing movies such as “Valkyrie” a film starring Tom Cruise and directed by Bryan Singer, “The Thomas Crown Affair 2” sequel, “007 – Quantum of Solace”, they have also partnered with the former New Line (now Warner Bros.) to help make the two “Hobbit” films with Peter Jackson and more films announced.
They have also announced a few surprising remakes that are officially greenlighted. “Death Wish” is one of them. A remake of the sci-fi action/adventure “Robocop” is coming and we are also getting a remake of the classic 1980 film “Fame”.
Take a look at this interesting article on budgeting and financing movies, they also announce a bunch of films they have greenlighted:
Remember, Sylvester Stallone is officially signed to direct, write, and “star” the leading role portraying Charles Bronson in “Death Wish”.
I know there are so many movie remakes coming out, but I can understand why Hollywood wants classic films to have an update to today’s version.
The only remake I care about is “Death Wish”. Seriously, Stallone is going to make a great “Death Wish” film, after seeing to what he did to the new”Rambo” think how he’s gonna make “Death Wish”. I think that’s the whole point of MGM signing Sly to make “Death Wish” ’cause of what he did to the new “Rambo” film. They want the new “Death Wish” violent and gory. The original Charles Bronson film of “Death Wish” was very violent and brutal, but Sly can make the film 10 times worse.
I’m sure Sly will start working on “Death Wish” once he comes back home from promoting Rambo overseas!
