Start your engines: Prequel to ‘Death Race’ is greenlit
Posted by GoreMaster Special Effects on November 15, 2009
A prequel to Paul W.S. Anderson’s Death Race has been given the go-ahead by Universal Studios. Penned by Tony Giglio and based on the story from Anderson, the upcoming straight-to-DVD feature will delve into the back-story of the masked and mangled Frankenstein, who was original played by the late David Carradine in the 1975 original film Death Race 2000.
Carradine provided Frank’s voice in Anderson’s Death Race.
Death Race was a marginal hit that made $75 million worldwide.
Production on the loosely titled Death Race 2 will begin after Anderson completes Resident Evil: Afterlife. He will serve in a producing capacity.
No word on a cast or who will be helming the project. We don’t care. As long as Natalie Martinez is back.
