Kurt Russell of course played Snake Plissken in Escape From New York. In recent years his son, Wyatt, has appeared in successively higher profile movies. He looks like his old man, so might it be the case that he’d appear in a remake of Escape From New York? Here is what he tells Esquire Magazine:
Although that’s very kind, that will not be happening. There will be no Snake reboot from me, that’s like career suicide 101. That’s like what not to do. I don’t know if anybody else could be Snake Plissken.
Good luck, go get ’em, I sincerely wish you the best of luck. I just don’t know how it’s possible. And for me, if I really wanted to get people sending me hate mail, I think that’s what I should do. I will not be ever doing anything like that.
Leigh Whannell is attached to write a script for a proposed remake of the movie. Has anyone considered… another sequel?
