Bruce Willis’ ‘Death Wish’ Reboot Pushed Back to Next Year

Bruce Willis’ “Death Wish” reboot has been pushed back from Nov. 22 to March 2.

Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures launched a new distribution operation in August, coinciding with the release of Kathryn Bigelow’s historical drama “Detroit,” which will distribute the pic. The label’s second film, Ben Stiller comedy-drama “Brad’s Status,” has grossed $1.9 million in limited release since its Sept. 15 launch.

“Hostel” director Eli Roth helmed the “Death Wish” remake and former MGM co-chairman Roger Birnbaum is producing. The new “Death Wish” also stars Vincent D’Onofrio, Kimberly Elise, Mike Epps, and Elisabeth Shue.

Paramount released the original “Death Wish,” starring Charles Bronson, in 1974 with Michael Winner directing and Dino De Laurentiis producing. The film was based on the Brian Garfield novel about vigilante Paul Kersey, who goes after criminals when his wife is murdered and his daughter is left catatonic after being sexually assaulted during a home invasion.

The original, which carried a $3 million budget, was a major success, grossing $22 million at the box office in 1974. Bronson starred in four “Death Wish” sequels, concluding with 1994’s “Death Wish V: The Face of Death.”

The new “Death Wish” will open against Fox’s Jennifer Lawrence thriller “Red Sparrow,” Sony’s action-drama “Alpha,” and New Line/Warner Bros.’ comedy “Game Night.”
