Sylvester Stallone, the thick-voiced lug/actor, plans to remake the 1974 Charles Bronson classic, "Death Wish."

Variety reports that studio bosses are seeing it as another way to milk every last bankable buck out of Stallone's aging carcass:
"We are looking at our library to determine which potential franchise properties make the most sense for us to produce, and 'Death Wish' was clearly one of that jumped out," said MGM chief operating officer Rick Sands. "We hope to get a deal done with Sylvester Stallone to direct and star, and like the 'Rocky' and 'Rambo' films, we see this as another potential franchise for him."
As kids we watched them film part of this movie in the L.A. 'hood (even though it was set in New York). The story is about a man who goes postal when his wife is iced by muggers. Who gets to play pretend-wife to the 61-year-old Stallone?

That's because Stallone looks like death warmed over.
