Bruce Willis’ Reimagining of Classic 1970’s Bronson Thriller ‘Death Wish’ Arrives in Theaters Amid Heated Gun Control Debate

“The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun.” – Wayne LaPierre, CEO of the National Rifle Association Enter Dr. Paul Kersey, devoted family man-turned-ruthless vigilante in “Death Wish.”

Director Eli Roth (“Hostel”) reboots the classic 1974 revenge drama with Bruce Willis taking on the lead role embodied by the late Charles Bronson in the original “Death Wish” and its four – yes, four – sequels.

With a shift in setting from the mean streets of 1974 New York City to the meaner streets of 2017 Chicago, Dr. Kersey dons a hoodie and vows to take down the thugs who murdered his wife (Elisabeth Shue) and raped his daughter (Camila Morrone).
