Death Wish Is Being Remade With Bruce Willis and Eli Roth
Now we can add Death Wish to the list of films that are or have been remade.
A Chicago neighborhood is currently the filming location of a remake of the Charles Bronson cult-classic Death Wish.
Filming notifications have been posted in and around Pilsen and several other neighborhoods since Sept. 23 from Death Wish Productions, noting street closures and parking restrictions during filming, a spokesman for 25th Ward Ald. Danny Solis, confirmed Monday.
Bruce Willis will play Paul Kersey, portrayed by the iconic Charles Bronson in the original, an architect who goes on a vigilante spree to rid New York City of crime after his daughter is assaulted.
Death Wish is being helmed by Eli Roth from a script penned by Scott Alexander & Larry Karaszewski.
