Because Hollywood won't be happy until they remake every John Carpenter movie, Escape From New York is the latest to receive the treatment. They announce a while back that Gerard Butler (300) will be playing Snake Plissken. Not to bad, I guess, but I hope he realizes that Snake Plissken doesn't scream like an idiot. But today it has been announced that The Rat himself, Brett Ratner is directing. I have mixed feelings about this. X3 tuned out better than I thought it would, but I really don't want Ratner f'n this up. I think it is pretty lame to do a remake of EFNY anyways. What say ye?
