Escape From New York remake ruined?

While we're on rumours, it seems that the new script treatment for the Escape From New York remake from Jonathan Mostow isn't so hot, in fact the review is pretty scathing. Previously Ken Nolan, who had written Black Hawk Down, had written a pretty decent script, which is of course...

Wiseman on Escape From New York and Gears of War?

There's a rumour that's just appeared on the Internet that suggests the name of the director for both the Gears of War film and the remake of Escape From New York. It's someone who is good on action and just delivered one of the best franchise sequels we've seen to...

Escape From New York remake script reviewed

There's a script review online for the Escape From New York remake starring Gerard Butler as Snake Plissken, and it is surprisingly good. I had immediately thought negatively of this film as the original is a classic, very dark, very eighties, and very cheesy - don't get me wrong though,...

Russell backing off from Snake comments

Seems like Kurt Russell was only joking when he said that he had created Snake Plissken and that no one could carry off that role. Well, that's what he's saying during some Grindhouse promotion. His comments come after those where he said that he winced when he heard who was...

Russell disapproves of Butler in Escape remake

Gerard Butler to star in Escape From New York remake?
