South African model-turned-actress Tanit Phoenix and beloved Mexi-can Danny Trejo are back behind the wheel of Universal Home Entertainment’s new Death Race installment. Picking up where Death Race 2 left off, the action is now set to take place in the Mexican desert.
Phoenix and Trejo will be reprising their respective roles as Katrina Banks, an ex-military sniper doing time for killing her superior officer, and pit crew chief Goldberg. Other Death Race 2 cast members are also expected to return.
The original Death Race 2000 was produced by Roger Corman in 1975 and starred chronic masturbator David Carradine and Sylvester Stallone. The film was remade by director Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil: Afterlife) in 2008 with Jason Statham in the driver’s seat. The remake earned over $72 million in worldwide coin.
Phoenix can currently be seen on the new Cinemax murder anthology series “Femme Fatales.”
