Here at Dread Central we love Death Race 2000. It’s one of those extra charming flicks that revels in the fact that it has not one single redeeming social value. It was just a nice slice of absolute balls-out lunacy. Paul Anderson’s remake …. not so much. Still, it was successful enough to merit a direct-to-video sequel and the cat has come out of the bag regarding who will be stepping into the director’s chair.
Shock Till You Drop reports that Universal Home Entertainment and Impact Pictures have tapped Roel Reiné (The Marine 2, Deadwater) to get in the driver’s seat of Death Race: Frankenstein Lives.
Reiné will be working from a script penned by Tony Giglio, [and the film] is once again set at Terminal Island where a man named Carl “Luke” Lucas enters the titular game. Essentially, it’s a look at a previous “Frankenstein” before Anderson’s film put Jason Statham into the boots of the character.
Look for more on this soon, but for now relive past glory by diggin’ on the trailer for the original below.
