News ‘Escape From New York’ Co-Writer Nick Castle Shares Thoughts on Reboot Published 1 year ago on January 11, 2019 By Nick Bond Share Tweet While the folks at ComicBook had the opportunity to a sit-down interview with Nick Castle, the co-writer of John Carpenter’s ’80s classic Escape From New York shared his thoughts on the Robert Rodriguez prequel. RELATED: ‘ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK’ REBOOT SCRIPT APPROVED BY JOHN CARPENTER “You know, I keep hearing this and that actor is gonna get involved and this production company,” Castle shared with the site. “I just sit back and hopefully the checks will come in. We’ll see. Of course, I would hope that John is involved somehow so that it has his signature, ’cause I like it when companies and filmmakers that are using the material have a certain respect for where it came from.” Neil Cross (Luther) penned the script for the Escape From New York prequel, which was handed over to Carpenter who gave it his seal of approval.
