Carpenter has nothing left...

Remake. Not sequel. Someone change the title...but continue reading:

News

Butler to Escape From New York


Source: Variety
March 13, 2007

300 star Gerard Butler is lined-up to star in a remake of John Carpenter's Escape From New York from 1981, reports Variety.

Neal Moritz is attached to produce, with Black Hawk Down screenwriter Ken Nolan penning the screenplay.

Butler would play Snake Plissken, the one-eyed convict who's charged with heading into the inescapable maximum security prison formerly known as Manhattan to liberate the U.S. president.

Kurt Russell originated the role and reprised it in the 1996 sequel Escape from L.A.

Actually this could be a very cool remake. With CGI being what it is, they could get really creative with this.

I would rather see Kurt Russel take up the role once more.

I'm up for it...Butler is a great choice and I'm glad he's finally starting to get the name he deserves...A good director will do wonders for this and hopefully it will end up more like Assault on Precinct 13 and less like The Fog...

Agreed on all counts. I watched this a few weeks ago and it certainly felt dated. I thought that a remake might not be a bad idea. The only thing that worries me is Neal Moritz involvment.

The Fog was horrible. They changed the story. Replaced stolen gold/revenge with love...and kinda sorta revenge. Please! Why does a good flick have to be marred with romance? ...especially since it had no part in the original.
