Sci-fi fans, rejoice!
Fox has signed a deal to remake the 1981 futuristic action film Escape from New York.
The original John Carpenter-directed film depicts a bleak futuristic world in which Manhattan has been converted into a maximum-security prison. Kurt Russell starred as Snake Plissken, a former soldier who was assigned to rescue the president after Air Force One crashes in New York. If he rescues the president, he saves the world. If he fails, he will explode.
