Snake Plissken is determined to make it back into theaters, and thankfully New Line Cinema is also committed. It was announced today that Breck Eisner (who I thought did a great job with The Crazies remake) is in talks to direct the redo of Escape From New York. New Line has been developing the revamp of John Carpenter’s 1981 original for several years. Gerard Butler had been attached to star as Snake Plissken in 2007, but is said to have officially left over creative differences. Carpenter’s original followed antihero Plissken (played by Kurt Russell) as he tries to save the President in gang-ruled Manhattan. The script for the new version has been penned by Ken Nolan, David Kajganich and Allan Loeb, who wrote the most recent draft. The new spin follows along the lines of the original in which Plissken — an iconic soldier-turned-criminal — is given 24 hours to find the President following the crash of Air Force One.
