Director Michael Winner was planning to adapt his hit movie Death Wish for the stage before he passed away earlier this year (13), according to Oscar-winning lyricist Don Black. The filmmaker died at his London home in January (13) after a long battle with liver disease, and his pal Black has now revealed they were plotting a new project before his death. Black tells Britain's Daily Mail, "We wanted to do a stage show called Death Wish - The Musical. It would have been such fun to write. Glorious bad taste. "Michael was very keen. Now the chance, sadly, is gone forever."
