Jeremy Renner Will Not Go Badass as Snake Plissken

The Wrap is reporting this morning that Jeremy Renner, the Oscar-nominated star of The Hurt Locker, will NOT end up in the role of Snake Plissken in New Line’s Escape From New York remake. Breck Eisner (The Crazies) will direct the redo that’s still in very early stages of development. Renner is someone the studio would like to see in the role, but it’sway too early to tell. The new spin to John Carpenter’s 1981 original follows along the lines of the original in which Snake Plissken (played by Kurt Russell in the original) — an iconic soldier-turned-criminal — is given 24 hours to find the President following the crash of Air Force One.
