John Carpenter must be spinning in his grave. I read this morning that the trifecta is complete – there are now remakes of his three greatest movies in the works. While Rob Zombie continues toiling on his Halloween remake and Ronald Moore polishes the script for The Thing redux, now comes word that producer Neal Moritz is shopping Escape from New York with 300’s King Leonidis (Gerard Butler) as Snake Plissken. I said it before and I’ll say it again. If Carpenter must be remade, why don’t we fix those flicks that had great ideas but were botched in execution. Where’s the love for Prince of Darkness or In the Mouth of Madness???
