Few tougher guys have ever been in action movies who Snake Plissken, the antihero played by Kurt russell in ‘Rescue in New York’ (1981) and its sequel ‘Rescue in LA’ (1996), both directed by John carpenter. Precisely on the twenty-fifth anniversary of the second, the filmmaker wanted to make it clear that Plissken has the potential to move forward with his story, regardless of the remake he is already preparing. Robert Rodriguez.

As we pointed out, there are plans to bring the story of ‘Rescue in New York’ back to the big screen, but in the form of a remake. Leigh whannell (‘Saw’, ‘The Invisible Man’) wrote the script for Fox, and Robert Rodriguez he was announced as director. In addition, Rodríguez expressed his wish that it be Kurt Russell’s son Wyatt Russell, who took over from his father as Snake Plissken. We have recently seen the actor entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) as US Agent in the series ‘Falcon and the Winter Soldier’.

In his first installment, Snake Plissken saved the president of the United States, and in the second he did the same with the president’s daughter. Who could he save in the future? Jeff Bezos? We will have to wait to see if the dreams of the fans (and Carpenter himself) come true.
