Timothy Olyphant To ‘Escape From New York’?

ALTBreck Eisner may have found his dream Snake for the Escape From New York remake. Eisner says that he considers Timothy Olyphant one of the “very few guys” fit to step into Kurt Russell’s iconic eyepatch. Olyphant and Eisner previously worked together in this winter’s The Crazies.

In a completely original and not overused move, Eisner explained to Comingsoon.net that the remake would deal with “the anxiety of the world and anxiety of our existence post-9/11.”

Eisner also revealed that he’s making some more changes to his already belabored Escape script, bringing in another writer to supplement Allan Loeb‘s work.

New Line Cinemas is producing the film, which is due out in 2013.
