    Studio Canal and Joel Silver’s house Silver Pictures announced Monday that they intend on retelling (rebooting) Escape from New York as a trilogy of films.

    The first movie is going to be a prequel that will tell the story of how New York came to be a prison. Studio Canal says they want to recreate the success of "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" that told a story behind the story.

    Sounds like it might be good.

    I'm assuming this is taking over that remake with Gerard Butler never got off the ground.

    There's been a couple that never got up and running. Jeremy Renner and Thomas Hardy were thrown around for awhile too. This time it appears to be a solid attempt.

    I can see it now, James Franco as Snake Plissken.....if Snake Plissken was a no talent faggit. Enough with the fucking prequel shit Hollywood. I saw on a website that someone thought it would be a good idea to make Snake Plissken female. :facepalm:

    That's so cool. I always remember them talking about the 3D navigation view for the glider. There WAS no cgi, so they made a real model of the city in black, and used glow in the dark tape to line the buildings to make it looks like a computer.

    I really hope so, I liked both the Escape movies.

    Long as they don't use some pretty boy actor as Snake.
