First Image from Death Race 2000 Remake

Get ready, kids, it’s your first image from the upcoming Paul W.S. Anderson remake of “Death Race 2000″ (aka “Death Race 3000″), and it features — er, Jason Statham driving a car. Yeah, not exactly exciting stuff, but what the hell, it’s the first ever image from the movie, so take a gandar.

Jason Statham leads the cast of an action-thriller set in the post-industrial wasteland of tomorrow, with the world’s most brutal sporting event as its backdrop. A penitentiary full of felons has inspired the jailers to create a grisly pastime ripe for lucrative kickbacks. Now, adrenalized inmates, a global audience hungry for televised violence and a spectacular arena come together to form the Death Race.

Three-time speedway champion Jensen Ames (Statham) is an expert at survival in the harsh landscape that has become our country. Just as he thinks he has turned his life around, the ex-con is framed for a gruesome murder he didn’t commit. Forced to don the mask of the mythical driver Frankenstein—a crowd favorite who seems impossible to kill—Ames is given an easy choice by Terminal Island’s warden (Joan Allen): suit up or rot away in a cell.

His face hidden by a metallic mask, one convict will be put through an insane three-day challenge. Ames must survive a gauntlet of the most vicious criminals in the country’s toughest prison to claim the prize of freedom. Driving a monster car outfitted with machine guns, flamethrowers and grenade launchers, one desperate man will destroy anything in his path to win the most twisted spectator sport on Earth.

Put the pedal to the metal September 26th, 2008.

    I love the original and this has potential to be good. However, with Paul W.S. Anderson at the helm, I’m not getting my hopes up.

    Jason Statham is no longer a good actor in my opinion needs to stop agreeing to making so many racing movies.. Just cause he was good in transporter movies doesn’t mean he will be the best in all racing movies.
