Not a rumor any more: “Escape from New York” is a go!

20th Century Fox will soon bring us a new version of John Carpenter’s iconic 1981 sci-fi classic. Mr. Carpenter will be back on duty for this new project as an executive producer; and will provide creative input that will launch a new franchise featuring the new Snake.


Snake Plissken, previously starred by Kurt Russell, is a criminal tasked with rescuing the President of the United States after the downing of Air Force One. The President’s escape pod landed on Manhattan Island, which has been converted to a maximum security prison completely run by the criminals that inhabit it. Adding to the complications, Snake has one day in which to get him back – otherwise he’ll be killed by a poison in his system.

Nothing is in place yet, neither director nor cast, but one thing we know that Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman are producers.
