    Pittsburgh Film 'Sudden Death' Getting A Remake

    Starring Michael Jai White
    Filming in Winnipeg
    To be released on Netflix

    Here's hoping the main villain is a CGI Powers Boothe.

    TBH, was hoping Jai-White was going to do a sequel to Black Dynamite, but...

    The change in venue doesn't bother me. A new lead in place of JCVD doesn't bother me.

    The lack of Powers Boothe?

    My fiance for the last 28 years plus and I were actually in the original. They filmed it at the old Civic Arena, gave free hotdogs and Cokes to whoever came. I am guessing that a young Kessel was there too. Played WBS wearing I forget whose jerseys. Maybe Chicago. Huge number of cut out audience members too.

    Was fun actually.

    Wasn't it actually the Cleveland Lumberjacks dressed in Chicago sweaters?

    I hear ya. I remember weird things like that and forget the normal stuff. :help:

    I just found out from that article that there was a second scrimmage between Johnstown and Wheeling to get more footage. I don't remember that at all.

    I didn’t like Sudden Death and that’s saying something, because as a kid I liked all the Missing in Action films, Neverending Story 2 and North.

    It was dingy. Civic Arena was not a good choice. I remember thinking it had worse lighting/color than Slap Shot and that came out 20 years earlier and was filmed in much ****tier locations.

    Oh joy, another pointless remake. Just what the world of filmmaking needed.

    I hope they are changing the team and everything, like there's no good to come from this.

    Might as well have Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker play in this one.

    "Sudden Death to Rush Hour" two cops trying to keep Gary Bettman from kidnapping Sidney Crosby before fans start trying to get out of the arena to beat the traffic.

    They tried to make this film in Philly but Gritty kept winning the mascot fight scene and they had to pull out.

    Meh. This just postpones the role MJW was born for--Simon Phoenix in a remake of Demolition Man.

    Look on the bright side. This is one remake that would be hard pressed to not be better than the original.
