Leigh Whannell Attached to Write 'Escape From New York' Remake for Fox

Snake Plissken is set for a big screen return in a brand new Escape From New York movie from fox, which will retain elements of the original cult classic action thriller.

Sources say that while there is no deal for him to direct, the door is open for that possibility. Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman are producing the project. Horror master John Carpenter is on board as executive producer.
