Escape From New York remake falling apart?

Don't know if it's karma or a curse or just a string of minor setbacks, but the recent plan to remake John Carpenter's classic Escape From New York has hit a few snags.

First, Director Len Wiseman (Underworld) was attached. He left the project and Brett Ratner (Rush Hour) was rumored to be taking his place...talk about going from bad to worse. Now "Rat" is off the project.

Gerard Butler, who was cast as Snake Plissken has now left the project due to "creative differences."

Hopefully the producers will get the picture that this film probably shouldn't be remade.

New Line are still persisting with the remake, from what I know.

Jonathan Mostow, director of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, has been brought in to do a re-write of the script, with an option to direct.

This may still happen, after all.

what we want is a proper sequel - carpenter direct, russell stars . . . but not that stupid LA cheezy crap - more of the gritty NY feel

I hope it keeps getting pushed away untill there is a name change and it is no longer considered a remake!

I want them to make it. If it's good I'll watch and enjoy it. If it's bad then we'll get a cool Escape from NY special edition release for the original around the time the remake hits the theaters and new people will be introduced to the original. That's why I'm loving these remakes... except for The Fog. They just re-released the same ole' DVD.

what i want is a sequel to escape from LA but all 'road warrior' nasty and gritty with kurt russel but without all the cheezy satire from ELA. I think russell could be a great grizzled old warrior and just letting him play it straight would be awesome
