Escape From Prequels

Escape From New York
If you liked Escape From New York and Escape From LA, but thought that we needed a prequel remake trilogy, then you are certifiable. And also in luck, because that’s what we’re getting! Studio Canal is working with Joel Silver’s Silver Pictures to bring the new trilogy to life. So far, all they’ve done is a few brainstorming sessions (if that) and dropped the press release to Deadline, but eventually they’ll have a writer and director and a new Snake Plissken cast that will upset 95% of the internet.

There was a prior Escape From New York remake in the pipeline, but I heard it was dead. Maybe America will escape again…

Ben 10 gonna get movied!

Sure, there’s already a live-action Ben 10, but it’s a Cartoon Channel made for tv movie. This will be a live action big screen adaptation on par with The Last Airbender, so you know it’s gonna be good! For those of you who don’t watch cartoons, Ben 10 is about this kid who find an alien device called the Omnitrix that lets him turn into 10 different alien shapes. And now Joel Silver will be bringing it to the big screen so boys everywhere have a new movie to beg their parents to take them to.
Q: Do you want to be an alien?
A: No, I’ve been ten.
