Carpenter escapes Earth?

Escape from New York

An anonymous scooper wrote in to us with the following (otherwise unconfirmed) tidbit that should interest anyone who insists that it's a Snake Plissken impression and not a Clint Eastwood one...but before you get too excited, remember that this is nothing more than a rumor at this point:

A major meeting was held at Paramount Thursday evening with both John Carpenter and Kurt Russell in attendance. The topic -- preparing for a third entry in the Snake Plissken chronicles entitled ESCAPE FROM EARTH. Apparently, 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. Although the screenplay is being kept under tight wraps, I'm told by (another source) who was lucky enough to take a peek at the first thirteen pages that the script takes off immediately where the previous left off and features our planet en-route to Armageddon. It looks as though Carpenter will push-off the production of Psychopath with Titan Productions and collaborator Todd Farmer in order to ready this entry for a 2008 release.

So escaping New York and LA didn't cut it? Gotta leave the planet now? That sounds about right. At least in a John Carpenter movie, it does. Let's keep our fingers crossed on this one because a third movie for the series would certainly be awesome. We'll keep you updated.

Extra Tidbit: For the Italian release of ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, Snake Plissken's name was changed to Hyena because, as we all know, there are no snakes in the Mediterranean, nor are Italians taught of their existence.
