Strangely enough, I could see Josh Brolin doing well as Snake Plissken. I mean, in a world where we just have to accept that yes, they are remaking Escape From New York, Brolin’s certainly not the worst choice to don the eyepatch.
The rumor comes from Spielberg News, who got the intel from a source close to the production. You may recall that Gerard Butler (300) was attached to star as the one-eyed Snake when the remake was first announced, but he bowed out back in October.
Now Brolin is the name everyone’s banding about, and I’m all right with that. Not that the film’s producers care how I feel … The redux is still looking for a director, having gone through Brett Ratner and Len Wiseman already, so maybe there’s still a chance it won’t happen? Don’t hold your breath.

Wonder why everyone thought he was dead in the Dread Central forums!
