      I've never seen the original Death Race but this sounds promising:
      Quote »
      "We did keep the anti-authoritarian 'screw you' tone of the original," director Paul W.S. Anderson, told us, citing Bullitt, The Getaway and the original Death Race 2000 as influences.
      "All those films were done practically. I said 'Let's make a real movie. With real armor-plated cars. With real machine guns. A really intense car movie. No CGI cars. No CGI environments.' The laws of physics apply in Death Race." If there's any CGI at all, Anderson promises, it will be solely to clean up individual film frames to rid them of stunt rigging, other cameras in the shot and the like."

      He's really showing us what a man with a cannon in his chest can do!

      And here you had me all excited that someone other than myself had actually watched Death Race 2000. Nothing will every be as campy as the original - it was especially amusing to watch a very young Sly Stalone and David Carradine "acting"...

      Death Race 2000 was great, very 70's. This one doesn't seem to be directly following that premise though. Probably had to get rid of things like my favorite scene where the nurses wheel all the gerry's out in the road.
      I'm hoping they can transform this into a decent video game though, along the lines of Twisted Metal.

      Great video game - I used to play that quite a bit and would periodically talk about "That would have been an Extra Style Bonus" whilst driving on the street. Needless to say, I had more than a few wide-eyed passengers when I elaborated on the definition of an Extra Style Bonus.

      if this Movie spurs a Carmageddon to be made for the PS3/xBox I would sell everything I had to get a copy of it if I had to (minus the console and TV of course!). I loved that game and I am saddened that I can't install it on my new PC. =(

      Hmmmmmm. I think I could watch that.
      Great. There's another movie that will be hard to schedule in this year. (I have small kids at home.)

      I have no faith whatsoever in Paul W.S. Anderson, but I'm sold on the production design for the cars.

      I remember watching the original when I was 6 years old. There was some truly horrifying violence in it as well as disturbing ideas in general. I have to say the no CGI idea is a good one.

      Boooooo! It should not be remade. It can not be improved on. I desperately want to build Frankenstein's Monster.

      I loved that game. If they make a video game tie in with the movie, just take the original Carmageddon, give it the latest and greatest graphics and ship it!

      That movie was so terrible, it was awesome.
      My favorite part:
      "The backroads of New York" the "heartland" and everything else all looks eerily like Southern California
      Such a terrible movie
      I hope they bring back the co-pilot concubines
      It's very hard to make a movie absolutely retarded, but have it be so retarded that it's awesome.

      CGI is so terrible...I know it saves money or whatever, but C'mon...what else are they blowing the $150million on when they're making movies these days...
