This project just won’t die. Unfortunately. Back in 2007 and 2010, reports swirled that a remake of the Kurt Russell classic “Escape From New York” was getting remade. At the time Len Wiseman was attached to direct and Gerard Butler was going to star. That’s no longer the case, but Joel Silver is still planning to bring the film back. And it will be a trilogy if Silver has his way.

Please no.
