Remake alert. Joel Silver and Studio Canal are teaming up to bring back Snake Plissken and Escape From New York. It has been attempted before, recently, with New Line Cinema taking a crack at it, but they let their option lapse when nothing came of it. Now, Silver plans a trilogy in the vein of Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, beginning with an origin story.

We’ll see what comes of this. But, it’ll be hard to top John Carpenter’s 1981 original with Kurt Russell in the lead. »
