Len Wiseman to Helm 'Escape From New York' Remake

by Paul William Tenny

Fear not, I'm rolling my eyes too. Let's make Die Hard 4, and remake old flicks, and then make sequels to re-made old flicks. Let's not have the balls to shoot original material, because, you know, it's not like original material wins awards or does really good at a box office sick to death of remakes and endless sequels. 'Risk' isn't a word in the accounting rooms of Hollywood studios. Apparently 'balls' isn't a known term either. You could add brains to the list, but that that point we're just shooting for spite.

So here we have it, Len Wiseman (Die Hard 4) has been hired to helm a remake of John Carpenters Escape From New York. They said it, so it must be true.

Yay, I can't wait. The suspense is killing me, will Wiseman get Kurt Russel to play Snake's dad? Is it the son of Snake? Will it still be in New York? Does John Carpenter mind that his salty classics that stink, yet are oddly entertaining are being taken over by the guy who Die Hard 16: Die Franchise Die?

No, Carpenter is an EP on the project, if that means anything. You can get hints about the "plot" from the link, if you're interested. Best to wait till this one hits TNT or HBO, though. These jerks wont stop wasting our time until we punish them by not going and seeing this crap.
