BAD NEWS: They Unimaginative Fuks are going to do a REMAKE of John Carpenter's classic ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK. (Argh!!)

GOOD NEWS: According to Variety, GERALD BUTLER of 300 is set to portray SNAKE PLISSKEN. Under the right director, this could be a fun remake with Bulter in the ole eye patch. But I can only think of about 3 directors who could do it justice. Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down) is writing the script. But again, why remake it? Yes, its low budget, but that was part of the charm! Go rent it today.

It seems now no one wants Carpenter to direct a movie anymore he's happy making money by selling the rights to all of his old movies to keep him in his old age.

you see my freind, today's generation has no imagination, nor anything that they can say "defines them" (like us with GI-JO, thundercats, Star-Wars, Sat. morning cartoons....ect) So they have to remake everything in order to live vicariously through our youth and experiences.
