New Escape from New York movie has a writer

New Escape from New York movie has a writerTruly classic sci.fi cult movie Escape from New York is to be remade and the writer of the BBC’s Idris Elba’s vehicle  “Luther” is going to be writing the script. Neil Cross has been tasked by Fox studios to not only pen the new version but also make it good enough to spawn a franchise. Which may or may not be a good idea when you think how crappy the sequel Escape from LA was.

No word on who will play Snake Plissken or who will direct, but at least there are some signs of life with this reboot.
