Bloody Disgusting has picked up an interesting rumour. According to their source meeting was held at Paramount last week with both John Carpenter and Kurt Russell in attendance. The topic - preparing for a third entry in the Snake Plissken film franchise.
Entitled "Escape From Earth", Carpenter completed a script for the project eight years ago but the studio has now taken an interest in it after Russell demanded doing it before signing on with the studio for a three picture deal.
The previous films in the franchise, 1981's "Escape from New York" and 1996's "Escape from L.A.", saw the emergence of the classic anti-hero Snake Plissken which became one of Russell's most famous characters. A few years ago, John Carpenter developed a proposed Snake Plissken television series that was ultimately turned down by all the major networks for being "too dark and bleak".
