Death Race 2008 Movie Info:-
Death Race 2008 action thriller film co-produced, written and directed by Paul W. S. Anderson. It stars Jason Statham, Tyrese Gibson, Ian McShane, and Joan Allen.
Though referred to as a remake of the 1975 film Death Race 2000 (based on Ib Melchior’s short story “The Racer”) in reviews and marketing materials, director Paul W. S. Anderson stated in the DVD commentary that he thought of the film as something of a prequel.
A remake had been in development since 2002, though production was delayed by the disapproval of early screenplays, then placed in turnaround following a dispute between Paramount Pictures and the producer duo Tom Cruise and Paula Wagner.
(the latter was the producer without Cruise in the film). Death Race was acquired by Universal Studios, and Anderson re-joined the project to write and direct. Filming began in Montreal in August 2007, and the completed project.
was released on August 22, 2008. The film received mixed reviews from critics. Three direct-to-video films in the series were then released: Death Race 2 (2010), Death Race 3: Inferno (2013) and Death Race: Beyond Anarchy (2018).
Death Race 2008 Movie Plot:-
In 2012, the collapse of the US economy and the subsequent increase in crime rates leads to the rise of privatized prisons. One such prison is Terminal Island Penitentiary, whose warden, Claire Hennessey, earns profits by broadcasting a modern gladiator game participated in by the prisoners. I
n the game “Death Race”, the racers, along with their navigators, compete in a three-part race over three days on a closed track. The track is littered with pressure plates that activate either the cars’ offensive weapons, defensive equipment or deadly traps. Any racer winning five races will be granted freedom.
Towards the end of one race, a masked driver nicknamed Frankenstein is nearing the finish line, pursued by his rival Machine Gun Joe. His navigator, the Case, reports that all his defensive equipment has malfunctioned.
Against her protest, Frankenstein refuses to let Joe finish first. Case ejects herself out of the car just before Joe destroys it (as it crosses the finish line).
Industrial worker and ex-con Jensen Ames struggles to support his family. When the steel mill he works at is closed, he receives a minimal final payment, before he and his fellow angry workers are forced to fight with the arriving riot police.
He returns home to his wife and their new-born daughter, Piper. A masked assailant knocks him unconscious. Jensen wakes up with a bloodied knife in hand, his wife dead nearby, and policemen storming into his home and arresting him. He is sentenced to life imprisonment, while Piper is placed in foster care.
Six months later, Jensen is transferred to Terminal Island Prison. He immediately gets into a fight with Pachenko and his Aryan Brotherhood gang. Hennessey’s right-hand man Ulrich calls Jensen to her office. She tells him that Frankenstein died from his injuries after the previous race, and offers to let Jensen.
go free if he impersonates Frankenstein to win one more race (as Frankenstein had already won four). Jensen accepts the offer and meets Frankenstein’s maintenance crew consisting of Coach, Gunner, and Lists, who explain the main reason she needs Jensen is that the profits.
and the audience of “Death Race” has halved since Frankenstein’s “disappearance”. They also inform him of his car capabilities, his opponents, the navigators (and his), and that Hennessey has had an entire cell block of the prison kept away from everyone else as they have been building something big on her orders.

Death Race 2008 movie Production:-
In March 2005, following the success of Alien vs. Predator (2004), director Paul W. S. Anderson revealed that he was directing a remake of Death Race 2000 (1975) entitled Death Race 3000 at Paramount Pictures based on a script by J. F. Lawton. The remake would be produced by the producer pair Tom Cruise and Paula Wagner.
Anderson described the remake as a riff on the first film. “It’s not a straight remake at all. The first movie was an across-America race. This will be an around-the-world race. And it’s set further in the future, so the cars are even more futuristic. So you’ve got cars with rockets, machine guns, force fields.
cars that can split apart and re-form, a bit like Transformers. Cars that become invisible,” the director explained. Comingsoon.net reported that “Paul saw his film almost as a prequel if anything; almost the genesis of the Death Race” though the film is referred to primarily as a remake in reviews and marketing materials. click here………
