Fishburne, Hansou Enter the Race?

ON

Glenn Close too?!

According to Latino Review, actors Laurence Fishburne (the “Matrix” trilogy) and Djimon Hansou are each eyeing roles as a race coach and rival racer, respectively, in Paul W.S. Anderson’s Death Race 2000 remake (now called Death Race). Playing the main baddie against leading man Jason Statham’s “Frankenstein,” Hansou would fill the roll Sylvestor Stallone held in the ’75 original. It’s probable that his character’s name has been changed from “Machine Gun Joe” for the update. Review adds that Glenn Close (“The Shield”) may co-star as the film’s warden.
