A remake of John Carpenter’s 1981 cult classic sci-fi action film, Escape from New York, has been in the works for many years. However, the film has been stuck in early development with different directors signing on to helm the movie, then backing out, while many actors were rumored to revive the role of Snake Plissken (originally portrayed by Kurt Russell), including Timothy Olyphant (Justified), Jeremy Renner (The Avengers: Age of Ultron), Jason Statham (The Expendables 3), and Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road). Additionally, reports on the premise of the film have varied from a straight remake to a prequel that would reboot the series.Click to continue reading ‘Escape from New York’ Remake Actor Shortlist Includes Charlie Hunnam?
