I thought the idea behind remakes is to bring a new take to a story for a new generation, not cast someone whose old enough to have done it first time round

Didn't he already kind of try this with Get Carter? And look how good that turned out ... Why waste time and money on something like a Death Wish remake?

It's Burma in John Rambo, not Malaysia!

I heard that the Brave One (Jodie Foster) was sort of a Death Wish remake too but I haven't seen it yet.

The plot of Deathwish is of a man in late middle age turning to vigilantism. So the actor needs to be in his mid forties at least.

*puts on best Michael Winer impression* now, now... calm down dears, it's just a remake... I'm actually a very good director.

and also... Stallone's gonna joust and make merry with donkeys? that film gets weirder and weirder. or as that mad kid Alice'd say, curiouser and curiouser.

I love Death Wish. Is a remake really warranted though? Given the way society has changed over the three decades since it came out, a reworking could do well. Of course, there have been many sequels and rip-offs of it over the years, so any impact may be reduced. The Death Wish name, though, has a certain notoriety to it. We'll see.

By all accounts, this doesn't sound like an appealing project, Sly rehashing an old franchise that was never good to begin with, and he's doing it from a script by the guys who did T3..but I'm still moderately interested regardless, being a major fan of Stallone, so what the hell. Bring on the bodies.

I'd be more excited if this was a remake of Death Wish 3.

Gotta love him! Yeah, it's a remake but I love Sly. Watched Copland again the other night. It's a pity he can't get in on a movie of that quality again. What a cast...
And Sly more than held his own against Big Bob and Harv.
Can't WAIT for John Rambo, thought Rocky B was the best Rocky since... well, Rocky

Pete Docherty or Amy Winehouse would be better casting as someone with a death wish.
