Bruce Willis will be playing Paul Kersey in the upcoming remake of the classic action film Death Wish and what we know is that horror film veteran Eli Roth is directing the film.
Until now, Willis was the only cast member named. However, two more veterans have been added to the cast. Vincent D’Onofrio and Dean Norris have signed on to join Willis in the film, based on the novel by Brian Garfield, which revolves around Kersey, a New York architect whose life is shattered when his wife is killed and daughter horribly assaulted by a local gang. Kersey soon becomes a one-man army against all criminals in the city.
D’Onofrio will play Willis’s brother in the film while Norris will play Detective Rains, who questions Kersey’s actions throughout the film.
Filming is set to begin next month for a 2017 release date.
