Joe Carnahan's remake of Death Wish seems to be back on. Frank Grillo has an update...

Frank Grillo is currently riding high at the US box office for the second time this summer, courtesy of The Purge: Anarchy. Having also popped up in Captain America: The Winter Soldier - ahead of appearances in more Marvel movies - he's busy, and enjoying well deserved success.

We had the pleasure of interviewing Grillo about The Purge: Anarchy, and you can read the full piece here.

In the course of that interview, he talked about working with director Joe Carnahan on The Grey. And he revealed that they're reteaming again for the long-mooted remake of Death Wish. "Carnahan and I became friends", he told us. "We’re going to do Death Wish together. Death Wish has an amazing script. That’s kind of tied up with Fox. He’s got a film called White Jazz, which is based on the book. So him and I are going to do something I think at the end of next year together".

This ties into Carnahan saying back in May that the project may be back on again, after several ups and downs. Grillo has been linked with it for years - and it looks like it may all finally coming to fruition...
