DEATH WISH Casts The Vigilante's Brother With Vincent D'Onofrio

Big things are abound for actor Vincent D'Onofrio next month. His next big screen venture, Antoine Fuqua's The Magnificent Seven will open the Toronoto International Film Festival which kicks off on the eighth prior releasing in theaters on September 23, which should be a ceremonial feat for moviegoers who've enjoyed Fuqua's work, especially in recent years.

Looking forward and just several days thereafter, MGM and Paramount are officially commencing principal photography with locations set for Montreal and Chicago on the forthcoming remake of Michael Winner's 1974 revenge classic, Death Wish. As such, it just so happens that D'Onofrio has landed a role according to Deadline with Eli Roth directing and Roger Birnbaum producing.

Taking its cues from Winner's original - an adaptation of Brian Garfield's 1972 novel, Bruce Willis will lead the way for a potential franchise of its own as Paul Kersey, an architect who resolves to take matters into his own hands when the justice system fails to bring the killers of his family to justice. D'Onofrio will play brother to Willis's role along with Breaking Bad series co-star Dean Norris in the role of Detective Rains, both newly added to the fray compared to the previous iterations of the franchise.

D'Onofrio has other work in the mix as well with an appearance in F. Javier Gutierrez's Rings this October, and Dax Sheperd's film adaptation of hit TV show, CHiPs next year. The actor is also best known for his thrilling harness of Marvel villain, Wilson Fisk (a.k.a. Kingpin) in Netflix series, Daredevil, for which a third season remains pending.
