"Somebody's going to die. I mean die-die, not coming back die." Sleepy Hollow's recently resurrected Orlando Jones was not messing around when he told Kristin Dos Santos major death is about to go down on the Fox hit series. And no, the dearly departed won't be as lucky as Orlando's fan-favorite Irving, whose recent passing was of the "coming back" variety. (Thankfully!) And to drive the point home, he added, "They're going to die and they're not coming back. That's happening." Gulp. Executive producer Len Wiseman also warned that it's going to be a bit of a heartbreaker, teasing, "Some really big twists that are coming up, the fate »
Fresh from the news last week about a new Escape from New York Blu-ray release, word has reached Deadline that Snake Plissken will be returning to the big screen in a new remake.
News has emerged that 20th Century Fox has won the remake rights to John Carpenter’s cult 1981 action sci-fi film about a dystopian future where eye-patched convict Plissken (Kurt Russell) is sent into a maximum security prison built on what used to be Manhattan to rescue the President.
While a remake of a beloved classic never goes down well with fans, their anger may be cooled somewhat by the presence of John Carpenter, who has come on board as an executive producer.
There have been a few attempts over recent years to remake the film, with Joel Silver (The Matrix) at one point attached to produce, before New Line Cinema and Breck Eisner (The Crazies) were considering making it. »

A quick preamble. Over the course of the coming weeks and months, we're going to be exploring many of our favourite movie franchises, and ranking the films in order. Mainly because it gives us a further chance to talk about many of our favourite films.

A remake of John Carpenter's then-futuristic action thriller Escape from New York has been gestating since as far back as 2007, with several attempts to get the project off the ground falling apart. Directors like Len Wiseman and Breck Eisner have been linked to the project along with leading men like Gerard Butler, Jeremy Renner and most recently Charlie Hunnam being linked to the role. However, none of those attempts had the cooperation of John Carpenter, and Deadline reports that's exactly what's happening with the latest attempt as 20th Century Fox has just won the remake rights to the 1981 film. More below! For those who aren't aware, the original film followed Kurt Russell played the bad ass Snake Plissken, an eye-patched convict who was tasked with rescuing the President of the United States after Air Force One goes missing after crashing in New York.
