Yup, Jeremy Renner Could Be the New Snake Plissken!

Update: We’re told this is VERY early and a premature announcement. Some news we’ve been hearing but couldn’t firm up until just now is that Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker) is in close talks to land the lead role of Snake Plissken in Escape from New York, the Breck Eisner-directed remake of John Carpenter’s classic 1981 post-apocalyptic thriller that followed antihero Snake Plissken (played by Kurt Russell) as he tries to save the President in gang-ruled Manhattan. New Line Cinema’s 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. Eisner directed The Crazies for Overture. We’ll let you know the second anything becomes official.
