Ratner escapes NY

10.29.2007
Although this article is Brett Ratner-based, Iím not going to waste precious space bashing the guy, a) because itís tired and lame, and b) because heís accomplished more than I most-likely ever will, and bangs the kinds of girls that I creep online.

After j receiving an award at the Savannah Film Festival, Ratner was asked about his involvement with the planned ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK remake, and he said it's indeed moving forward, just without him. In case you hadnít heard, Ratner was set to direct the remake which is to star 300 megaman Gerard Butler. This of course angered both Ratner haters and EFNY purists, but now, they can all breathe a collective sigh of relief, because this reviled ďhackĒ wonít be going near the beloved property. Thank God, right?

Another director whose name has been thrown around was Len Wiseman, but really, would he be any better? LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD was a pretty standard action flick, despite its good reviews. Any great director out there shouldnít be bothering himself with unnecessary remakes anyway. Theyíd be too busy filming original content. If youíre going to remake a film that isnít even that old, expect a generic director to be the one who brings in an equally generic idea for a movie to life.

Extra Tidbit: Again, no matter how much you hate Brett Ratner, you'd give up your fugitive brother just to be him. Admit it.
