!! OMG, John Carpenter’s ‘Escape From New York’ to be remade, Hunnam, Bernthal, and Stevens reportedely front-runners for Snake Plissken !!

Since every Brooklyn resident has decided to fill my Facebook feed with posts about how “Brooklyn is OHVER!!!” and that there’s a Starbucks across from their favourite independent coffee shop that their friend opened while gentrifying Brooklyn 10 years ago, and people like Patti Smith are telling artists to stay the hell away from NYC because it’s not the city it once was — what better time to capitalize on the backlash against the city, than to reboot ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK!?
That means that work horse Snake Plisskin is coming back! But WHO could possibly fill the legendary, studly Kurt Russell‘s shoes!?
According to Starlog, Silver Pictures narrowed the candidates down to three studs: Charlie Hunnam (“Sons of Anarchy“), Jon Bernthal (“The Walking Dead“) and Dan Stevens (“The Guest“).
Starlog has also said that the film will be:

“more team-based, as Snake Plissken traverses through a treacherous New York landscape with a rogues gallery of criminals who look to leave the island-turned-prison in exchange for the rescue of the captured U.S. President.”

All I know is they better keep Carpenter‘s original soundtrack! If they end up using Linkin Park, I’m really gonna lose it.

!! OMG, End-Of-Year Lists: John Carpenter’s Top Six Games of 2013 !!

Horror king John Carpenter has always been one of our favourite horror filmmakers. It’s inspiring how much of a handle and input he had with his own films, especially early on when he would take to scoring and composing the music for the films himself.
So, it’s not really all that surprising that today his interests would span into the advanced storytelling art of video games. John, 65, often tweets reviews of games he’s playing via his Twitter account, and he recently gave GiantBomb a list of his top games of 2013.
Check them out after the jump! Do you agree with John’s list?
