    Escape From NY Remake Trilogy

    Joel Silver‘s Silver Pictures has joined forces with Studio Canal to work on a "retelling" of Escape From New York.

    "Silver is planning an entirely new take on the material. The goal is to turn it into a trilogy, starting with an origin story in a fashion similar to the way Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes restarted that franchise."

    This wouldn't be the first time a remake had been attempted, as New Line made a go at it with producer Neil Moritz and Breck Eisner (The Crazies) as director. Gerard Butler, Jeremy Renner and Tom Hardy were all considered to play Plissken. That effort ended when New Line let the option lapse almost two years ago.

    http://www.deadline.com/2013/03/joel...from-new-york/

    If you think about it, Escape From LA was essentially a remake of NY and that film was pretty horrible. Nothing will top the original, but I'm honestly open for a reboot of the films, especially if they intend to do an "origin story" and make it into a full trilogy. It would be nice to see Plissken rise to become to badass that he's known for. Hopefully they pick out a good actor to play the role, because the wrong casting can really ruin everything. Still, nothing will top Kurt Russell in the original.

    This doesn't sound like a bad idea...let me clarify...not a terrible idea. First off if they go into this for PG-13 it's a lost cause. Second, nobody will top Kurt Russell and no mater who is cast as Plissken they will be compared to him no matter what. Rightfully so.

    Remaking this is a tough task because of how much of a classic the movie is and how much Kurt Russel IS Snake Plissken.

    To cast Plissken you would need someone that isn't already a big name at the box office, someone up-and-coming. Not to throw a name out there because I am such a huge fan of the show but Antony Starr might be a good candidate for the role.

    To put it simply this is a production that has to be planned and executed very carefully for it to succeed. Basically it has to be made with the same special care that The Evil Dead remake has endured.

    You and your Banshee obsession But I agree with you about the not-so-big-name actor for the role.

    I know, I know. I was thinking maybe Karl Urban as well.

    That's why I thought of him. A remake of this should have the tone of Dredd as well. That is one helluva flick!

    Rumor now is Tom Hardy and Jason Statham are now the top considerations.

    I could see Tom Hardy doing it, but I don't want Tom Hardy as Mad Max and Snake. He's becoming a remake icon

    Hardy would be good, but like DM said, he's already taking on the role of Mad Max, which is another badass post-apoc character, so it would seem typcast and conflicting if he did both roles. As much as I like Statham, all his movies seem the same now

    Agreed. And it is now confirmed there is no more Dredd coming so bring on Karl Urban

    Perfect example of why making kick-ass movies like that don't come along all too often for wide theatrical release, they bomb. Another perfect reason of how easily this remake could go the PG-13 route.

    John Carpenter on his involvement with this remake.

    Carpenter will apparently "exert creative influence" over the film, meaning he’s going to take their money and go back to bed I think. I say that because back in 2014 during a Halloween Q&A at Beyond Fest, Carpenter said this about remakes of his films:

    "What I do is, I sit on my couch, I extend my hand, and a check drops [into it]… They remake everything these days, it doesn’t mean anything. They just remake it because they think that the audience is so stupid that they won’t go see anything original. They look down on you, don’t you see that? I just want to get the check, that’s all I give a shit about."

    He really didn’t seem to hold back there did he?
