From the free McTiernan facebook page;
HERE IT IS !! We cannot find the words to express how happy we are as we finally reach this moment we've all been waiting for during the last 328 days. Gail McTiernan, John's wife, has just sent us a text message to tell us "I got him".
It is now a sure thing: John McTiernan has left Yankton prison to go back to his family ranch in Wyoming alongside his beloved Gail. Huge thanks to all of you who have been following this page since its creation and who have done so much to bring John's cause to the attention of other people. Stay with us, we will keep you posted in the coming hours and days about what's next."
"There's nothing wrong with the concept of doing something," Russell said of the proposed Escape from New York reboot. "I just think that my only thing about that is, when I think of remakes -- and I've done remakes that I didn't think should have been done -- I only think remakes make sense if you take an idea that was flawed, a script that was flawed, perhaps they didn't have enough money to make it correctly, maybe a character or two was not particularly well-played or could be fixed. If it had a problem that you'd say, 'God, if you just do that, that's a great movie,' or, 'If that movie had so-and-so in it, it could be great! Imagine that with so-and-so in it. Imagine that done this way.' Then that to me makes perfect sense as to why they would do a remake.
If you're talking about Escape from New York, there's a reason that movie is lean like it is," Russell elaborated. "It's Snake's world. It's not just Escape from New York world, it's Snake's world. Well, what's that got to do with it? Well, look what Snake is. Look at who's playing him and what he's thinking. That guy's kinda got him. If you really watch it, he's doing something there that's a little more than I thought at first. I kinda feel bad for him, but he kind of annoys me. I find him slightly obnoxious. But at the same time, if there's a building on fire, I'm gonna get behind that guy. You begin to say, 'Well, so the character has no flaw there. What about the guy playing him? Eh, they kinda like that too.' Why are you making this again?
We personally believe an older Snake Plissken would work very well, it could play like Clint Eastwood's character from Gran Torino.
