Jason Statham in Charles Bronson's "The Mechanic" Remake

Posted: April 21st, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Jason Statham in Charles BronsonSubmit Comment
Production Weekly is reporting that Simon West is in talks to direct Jason Statham (Transporter) in a remake of the 1972 Charles Bronson classic action film "The Mechanic."

In the original film, Bronson played Arthur Bishop, a mob hit man who operates in a world of his own, an uncompromising world where conventional rules of morality don't apply and where one wrong move could cost him his life. He's always worked alone but, as age catches up with him, Bishop takes on a competent and ruthless apprentice (Jan-Michael Vincent) and teaches him everything he knows. Together they become an unmatchable team of globetrotting killers until the pupil's ruthlessness puts him on a collision course with his teacher.

West is the man responsible for such films as "Con Air," "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" and the recent "When a Stranger Calls" remake.

There have been about 1000 deathwish remakes. The whole Punisher comic book series/movie "franchise" is basically deathwish on roids.

How much you wanna bet that Channing Tatum will be the pupil.

acslaterson - tell me you're joking please! ENTER THE DRAGON SHOULD NEVER BE RE-MADE!!!!!!! Why don't these class-less Producers go urinate on Bruce Lee's grave instead?! ACTIONFIGURE - you're right on again my good man... QT to direct this movie (type) is a must.

Ranger, hahaha. I just made that up as a horrible idea. I wouldn't put it past some idiot producer to think that was a good combo though...
