Snake Plissken to "Escape from Earth"?

by | August 7, 2006 | Comments

John Carpenter‘s "Escape from New York" is a true-blue cult classic among (male) movie fans of a certain age (old, like me), but the goofy follow-up, "Escape from L.A.," didn’t exactly strike the same gold-mine. Fortunately it looks like Carpenter, Kurt Russell, and Paramount might be close to striking a deal for Part 3 — which would be called "Escape from Earth."

From JoBlo’s: "A major meeting was held at Paramount Thursday evening with both John Carpenter and Kurt Russell in attendance. The topic — preparing for a third entry in the Snake Plissken chronicles entitled ESCAPE FROM EARTH. Apparently, Carpenter completed a script for the project eight years ago but the studio has now taken an interest in it after Russell demanded doing it before signing on with the studio for a three picture deal. Although the screenplay is being kept under tight wraps, I’m told by (another source) who was lucky enough to take a peek at the first thirteen pages that the script takes off immediately where the previous left off and features our planet en-route to Armageddon. It looks as though Carpenter will push-off the production of Psychopath with Titan Productions and collaborator Todd Farmer in order to ready this entry for a 2008 release."

It’s all just unconfirmed rumor at this point, but hey, we geeks can dream, can’t we? Click here for the full article.
