Another direct-to-DVD effort
Little details here, but the chaps at Moviehole confirmed Universal is moving ahead with Dead Race 3.
Death Race 2, the prequel to the 2008 remake Death Race, hits DVD and Blu-Ray on January 18. That film, starring Luke Goss, tells of the origins of the Death Race and the rise of the racer Frankenstein. Silly, but fun, stuff with chicks, explosions and continuity errors (why are there mountains in the background during a big race sequence on Terminal Island…which has no mountains?).
Moviehole’s report doesn’t specify if the threequel will be a continuation of the prequel’s storyline, but I think you can count on that.
