Heroes and Villains Join the Death Race Squad

Production begins in a few weeks, too.

by | July 31, 2007 | Comments

We already knew that Jason Statham was toplining the new Death Race 2000 remake, but director Paul W.S. Anderson dropped a few cool casting bombs at last week’s San Diego Comic Con.

According to IGN Movies, Tyrese Gibson and Joan Allen will be joining Mr. Statham in the futuristic action satire that’s based on the 1975 Paul Bartel film of (kinda) the same name. The new one’s just being called Death Race, I believe.

Mr. Anderson unveiled that Statham would be playing "Frankenstein" (played by David Carradine in the original) and Gibson would be playing Machine Gun Joe (played by Sylvester Stallone in the original). And get this: Joan Allen’s the big bad villain of the piece! "Joan Allen is the big villain baddie of the movie, which I’m very excited about … She’s gonna kick Statham’s ass!" That comes from the director himself.

Production on Death Race begins next month in Montreal.
