Rumor: Josh Brolin Escaping New York (Latino Review/Jun 20/2008) By Edgar 'El Toro' Arce

Spielberg News a French website is reporting that Josh Brolin is in talks or he is in consideration to play Snake Plissken in a remake of Escape From New York. This is yet to be confirmed, so for now is a rumor.

Here is what the site says:

"A source close to the production (if so) has assured us that it is now Josh Brolin to be in the running to takeover the role of Snake Plissken in the remake currently in draft New York 1997.”

At one point I believe that Gerard Butler was in the running but later dropped out.
