‘The Crazies’ Director To ‘Escape From New York’

Snake Plissken will return. It was announced today that Breck Eisner (The Crazies) is in talks to direct the remake of Escape From New York. After several years, it seems this remake is finally taking off. In the past, Gerard Butler has been attached to play Snake Plissken, but who knows if that’s still in negotiations.

The remake was penned by Ken Nolan, David Kajganich and Allan Loeb. John Carpenter’s original followed antihero Plissken (Kurt Russell) as he tries to save the President in gang-ruled Manhattan.
