Death Wish remake...No! Cliffhanger sequal/remake...NO! Edgar Allen Poe, yep, that sounds interesting. As long as he has a gun, a knife and shit blows up of course...oh, and Jason Statham playing Poe.

A Death Wish remake with Stallone wouldn't work because we've seen Stallone win in tough situations too many times. If some nerdy guy was taking on the street thugs, you'd be worried the whole time if he was going to beat them. A better movie. Even a zombie Charles Bronson at the vigilante would be a better idea!

Bad idea. Just look how bad the Get Carter remake was.

C'mon, release that instead, it'll be cheaper than remaking (unless bright fucking spark exec thinks "I know, we won't go on location we'll do it all CGI, like 300, and Spirit, and everything else") so you'll have a rip-roaring mountain adventure, filmed in a small room with guys in green leotards. Sounds like a motherfucking blast

Great idea - but how would we tell the difference?

Erm, the film would be called 'Deathwish'? Pretty much a solid guarantee the neb would triumph, whether it's Stallone (c'mon, he's 64 it's like beating up your Grandad) or Emo fucking Phillips (now there's a motherfucking casting decision)

Going by theoh-so-80s 'Taken' I thought Liam Neeson had already taken up the Death Wish baton from Bronson.

...Every quote is a funny line! It's charming when a huge star doesn't take themselves, or the business, too seriously.

the idea of Sly doing both 'DEATH WISH' and 'POE' sounds good to me.

This was 2 or 3 years ago now, and I remember the Q&A cos I asked a question and Sly answered it! He asked what the fans thought of remaking Death Wish and the mood in the talkbacks was so negative he said he was dropping the idea.

id love to see a death wish remake with stallone but the beauty of the original was bronson just looked like a normal guy you wouldnt expect to be a vigilante in rambo stallone was ribbed to feck and certainly doesnt look like a normal guy!!

if he hadn't starred in death sentance i would have said kevin bacon would have fit the bill quite well!

Oh and stallone's get carter was better than the original!! What..........

Grew up watching stallone movies like Rambo and Cobra, stuff like that, it was a suprise to me that he is an absolute fanatic of the high priest of horror "Poe". I hope he brings the Kurt cobain of the gothic literature to the big screen, for my money Jeffrey combs should play POE as he did a fantatic job in Stuart (re-animator) gordon's The black cat.

Death Wish has already been remade, It's called The Brave One.
