Fox Remaking "Man on Fire" for Russia

Posted: May 21st, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Fox Remaking "Man on Fire" for RussiaSubmit Comment
Fox International Productions will make local-language films based on library titles "Man on Fire" and "Working Girl" for the Russian theatrical marketplace. The studio is separately working on a version of "Working Girl" for Japan.

The remakes will also be significantly less expensive than their Hollywood counterparts, with both the Russian versions of "Man on Fire" and "Working Girl" expected to carry budgets no higher than $4 million, with the expectation they don't have to perform beyond their own borders.

Each film will be considered more of a re-imagining than a remake, with concepts to be tailored by Russian writers. Each film will likely be re-titled.

Who can they get to play a Russian version of John Creasy, Both Scott Glen and Denzel Washington kicked ass in that role

P.s. Man on Fire is what The Punisher should be and could be if someone with a tiny bit of comic knowledge took a hold of him. Oh man that would be a movie.

"P.s. Man on Fire is what The Punisher should be and could be if someone with a tiny bit of comic knowledge took a hold of him. " WAR ZONE was a lot like the comics. It was real close to any PUNISHER comic that Marvel has published since WELCOME BACK FRANK rebooted the character nine years ago. Unless you want the resurrected supernatural Punisher. *puke*
