New "Escape" to Tell Snake Plissken's Early Years



Producer Neal Moritz has pointed out that the new version of "Escape from New York" will indeed provide the back-story of Snake Plissken.

Yes, our one-eyed hero Snake Plissken is going to retreat to the start line instead of merely repeating his heroic yet thrilling attempt in rescuing the U.S. President.

Neal Moritz, producer of the recently-announced "Escape from New York", has revealed in a brief interview posted in the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly that the project will positively recount "how Snake became Snake" and present "almost an origin story" in it.

Moritz's statement thereby confirmed executive producer John Carpenter's recent speculation that the picture might be rather a prequel than just a flat-out remake of the 1981 original as many thought before. To conclude, there is a big possibility for the moviegoers to know about Plissken's military service or how he lost his eye and became an outlaw then.

Recently picked up by New Line Cinema in an aggressive bidding war, "Escape" has already had "Black Hawk Down" Ken Nolan on duty to pen the script and "300" star Gerard Butler to play Plissken, which was originated by Kurt Russell. The latter actor, last seen on the big screen in "Poseidon", previously expressed his disappointment with the new version, especially in the casting of Butler, who is Scottish, despite the common understanding that Plissken is American.
