Even if you don't like it....it's happening, and they've hired a brand new writer. Neil Cross, the creator of Luther will be penning the screenplay for the reboot of John Carpenter's Escape from New York. One good point in this ridiculous, unnecessary reboot is that John Carpenter himself will be overseeing the project, he'll also be an executive producer.
There has been no news on who will be taking the roll of director but for some time The Crazies(2010) director Breck Eisner has been a front runner.
Who will play Snake Plissken?
Below are the actors that are rumoured to be playing the iconic character.
