Escape from New York remake on the cards….

March 19th, 2013 by bash Comments

Escape from New York is set to be remade as part of a new trilogy, with Liam Neeson, Tom Hardy, Jeremy Renner and Gerard Butler being linked to the lead role.

Joel Silver’s Silver Pictures and Studio Canal are teaming up to bring a new look to the franchise with plans of an origin story and then the eventual trilogy.

According to Deadline, Silver will start with an origin story similar in tone to how Rise of the Planet of the Apes set up the rest of the films. A search is currently underway for a writer, but there are already a few frontrunners for the leading man.

More as we get it.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
