Director Simon West's last move was 2006's When a Stranger Calls, a remake of the 1979 horror classic. West is dipping into the 1970's again with his latest movie, The Mechanic, which is a remake of a 1972 action movie that starred Charles Bronson as a hitman who takes on an apprentice (Jan-Michael Vincent).
Fans of the original movie probably find a remake to be sacrosanct, but West told CraveOnline that his version was based entirely on the original's screenplay after producer Irwin Winkler brought West on board the project. Con Air 2? >> Posted 01.26.11 by Ryan
