Jeremy Renner Will NOT be Making His Escape From New York

Jeremy RennerAnd the hunt for Snake Plissken continues, at least as far as finding an actor to portray the much beloved character in Breck Eisner’s remake goes. That’s right, kids, apparently we’re not as close to finding someone who’ll don the patch as we thought.

Putting to rest earlier rumors, The Wrap is reporting that the role was never extended to actor Jeremy Renner in the first place. Oh, Internet, how we love thee!

John Carpenter’s classic 1981 post-apocalyptic thriller followed antihero Snake Plissken (played by Kurt Russell) as he tries to save the President in gang-ruled Manhattan. New Line Cinema’s new spin follows along the lines of the original in which Plissken — an iconic soldier-turned-criminal — is given 24 hours to find the President following the crash of Air Force One.
