Death Race - oh no, another remake!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jason Statham will star in the futuristic action remake, Death Race.

Paul W.S. Anderson is writing and directing the film based on Roger Corman's 1975 cult classic that starred David Carradine and Sylvester Stallone. The Hollywood Reporter notes the movie told of a dystopian future America in which the president presides over an ultraviolent road race from New York to Los Angeles. One of the ways that drivers score points is by mowing down innocent bystanders using their heavily armed cars.

Why remake films that were already bad in the first place?
