‘Death Race 2′ Director Is ‘Dead In Tombstone’

Bloody Disgusting exclusively learned that Roel Reiné, who has directed a slew of direct-to-disc titles including The Marine 2, The Lost Tribe, The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption, Death Race 2 and Death Race: Inferno, is getting behind the camera for Dead In Tombstone.

Lensing this March in Bucharest, Romania, the director has made a deal with the Devil to make yet another title for Universal Pictures. No word on if there is a theatrical plan for this sucker.

Penned by Shane Kuhn and Brendan Cowles, with revisions by Michael Weiss, we’re told the film follows the protagonist Guerrero Hernandez, the leader of the Blackwater Gang of outlaws. Hernandez frees his half-brother Red from a prison (in the hopes of robbing the entire town), only to be shot in the back. Hernandez makes a deal with the Devil to rise from the grave for revenge. (I hope he comes out of a cake like in House 2.)

It sounds like The Crow only with a piece of sh*t protag. There’s nothing worse than hating the lead character; how can you possibly root for this guy?
