Escape From New York Remake
Reuters reported that Len Wiseman, who helmed Live Free or Die Hard, is in negotiations to shoot the remake of Escape from New York.
The project was set up at New Line in March with 300 star Gerard Butler attached as anti-hero Snake Plissken, a role played by Kurt Russell in John Carpenter's 1981 film.
The original was set in a futuristic 1997, when Manhattan had been turned into a giant maximum-security prison.
