[CARL "LUKE" LUCAS]
In his 20s-30, American, European, British, Australian, Latino, etc., handsome and confident, with a hint of danger, Lucas has been in trouble since the age of 12. Right-hand man to a notorious mobster for twelve years, he is sent away for life
after killing a cop in the course of robbing a bank. Offered a deal by the DA if he turns state's evidence, Lucas opts to take his chances behind bars, where he soon captures the attention of a violence-peddling television producer. Possessed of some serious driving skills, assertive, strong, and charismatic, Lucas is a natural fit for the ultimate test, aka, the "Death Race."...LEAD (2) STAR NAMES PREFERRED - ANY NATIONALITY, ANY ETHNICITY
In her 20s - early 30s, a model turned journalist, September is is "insatiably ambitious and eye-poppingly gorgeous," a woman who knows how to use what she's got to get what she wants. She's callous and self-serving, dressed provocatively, with the soul of an ice-pick, but the brains to know how to market violence to the masses. When ratings for her gladiator-style television show begin plummeting, September is quick to come up with the "Death Race" concept, thrilled by its stunning success sptv050769...LEAD (2) STAR NAMES PREFERRED - ANY NATIONALITY, ANY ETHNICITY

Teamed with Lucas for a death race, the chemistry soon heats up between the two...LEAD (16) STAR NAMES PREFERRED - ANY NATIONALITY, ANY ETHNICITY
In his 30s - 60, American or foreign, bold, opulent and self-indulgent, the CEO and Founder of the Weyland Corporation, he is a opportunist at best, a man who makes millions on the backs of others. Clearly not immune to September's come-hither charm, he agrees to produce a televised gladiator-style series of fighting matches, later disappointed by the ratings. However, he's quite impressed when September's idea for a race to the death has the viewers tuning in again...LEAD (11) STAR NAMES ONLY - ANY NATIONALITY, ANY ETHNICITY
[WARDEN MEDFORD PARKS]
In his 40s - 60s, Caucasian, African American, Latino, European, etc., he is the old school style warden at Terminal Island, the last stop for the country's most unredeemable criminals. More comfortable around hoods and rapists than self-serving
broadcasting types, he butts heads with September, outraged by her willingness to glamorize society's worst, disgusted by her insensitivity when lives are on the line. Eventually forced out of job by the Machiavellian September, he can't help but feel vindicated when she gets her comeuppance...LEAD (2) STAR NAMES ONLY - ANY NATIONALITY,ANY ETHNICITY
