Ready to read something silly? The dystopian future depicted in 1981’s Escape From New York was supposed to be 1997. Considering its lack of prescience, it’s probably about time someone tries again to portray a future New York from which an ex-soldier tries to escape. Good thing Deadline reports that mega-producer Joel Silver (the Die Hard movies, The Matrix movies) has announced intentions to reboot the film. No other major details have been revealed; however, considering the original was partially a satire of New York City’s eighties crime problem, we can only assume this one will focus mostly on rent prices and convincing cab drivers to take you to Brooklyn.
