Horror movie-maker PAUL WS ANDERSON is teaming up with Tom Cruise to bring classic action film DEATH RACE 2000 back to the big screen.

The Alien Vs Predator director will "modernise" the 1975 film, which starred Sylvester Stallone and David Carradine, and call the new version DEATH RACE 3000.

Anderson will co-produce the film with Cruise and his partner PAULA Wagner.

He says, "Set in 2020, our film is an ultra-violent, no-holds-barred race with heavily armed Escalades, Ferraris and Aston Martins."
