It looks like Jason Statham may take the starring role as "Frankenstein" in the remake of Roger Corman's cult classic "Death Race 2000." Paul W.S. Anderson has written and is set to direct the updated actioner.
Although the remake was originally planned as a [pardon the pun] vehicle for Tom Cruise. Cruise has decided to pass on the starring role, but instead stay on as a producer. The original "Death Race 2000" was released in 1975 and starred David Carradine and a pre-"Rocky" Sylvester Stallone. Word is that Anderson would like for Sly to reprise his role as "Machine Gun Joe."
This could be fun... especially if Sly returns.
