Last summer, macho director Joe Carnahan (The Grey) talked about his vision for a remake of Death Wish, but it looks like that view didn’t jibe with the studio. As of August, Carnahan was still in the process of scripting the reboot of the 1974 movie starring Charles Bronson that kick-started a five-film franchise. Originally based on the Brian Garfield novel of the same name, Death Wish centers on Paul Kersey, a man who becomes a vigilante after his wife is murdered and his daughter is sexually assaulted by muggers. The studio wanted Bruce Willis to step into the role while Carnahan had other ideas, thus leading to a split over creative differences. Hit the jump for more.
