Bruce Willis has a Death Wish

While we might be thinking that Bruce Willis' next big action film project might be the upcoming prequel/sequel to "Die Hard", it looks like he is also setting his sights to revive the gritty action classic "Death Wish".

According to Deadline, MGM and Paramount are teaming up to make "Death Wish", a film based on the 1972 novel of the same name. As mentioned earlier, Willis will be the star of the picture, and the relatively unknown duo Aharon Keshales & Navot Papushado are looking to sign on as directors. Word has it that production for the film will begin this summer, but that's by no means a confirmation. The story follows an architect whose life is ruined after his wife his killed and his daughter is sexually assaulted. When the cops come up short, the man takes justice into his own hands by hunting down the suspects himself.

Personally, I love the Death Wish movies, but I hope that this revival will not cross-over into the "big-and-packing-with-explosives-and-obnoxious-stunts" action flick, and will be more of that gritty, more urban and simply dirty kind of action, just like the classics.
