Bloody Disgusting learned today that casting has officially begun for Death Race: Frankenstein Lives, the sequel to the Paul W.S. Anderson directed remake that hit theaters last August. Anderson won’t return to direct and there is still nobody at the helm. Penned by Tony Giglio, here’s the logline: “Produced by Paul W.S. Anderson, Jeremy Bolt and Mike Elliott, newly arrived at Terminal Island, a prison for the most unredeemable of convicts, Carl ‘Luke’ Lucas must prove his mettle in a race to the death.” Shooting begins next February. We’ll let you know when official casting news comes in. Jason Statham will not be returning.
