Snake To Escape Again

SCIFI WIRE -- Snake Plissken, the hero of MGM's Escape From New York and Paramount's Escape From L.A., is making a multimedia comeback beginning in the spring, according to The Hollywood Reporter. An anime feature film is in the works for a 2004 release, and Hurricane Entertainment has partnered with director John Carpenter, producer Debra Hill and actor Kurt Russell to produce a comic-book series, John Carpenter's Snake Plissken Chronicles, which will debut in conjunction with MGM Home Entertainment's special-edition DVD of Carpenter's Escape from New York, the trade paper reported.

A preview issue of the magazine will be unveiled at Comic-Con International in San Diego this weekend. In the anime movie, Russell will voice Snake. Carpenter, Russell and Debra Hill will executive produce, in conjunction with a Japanese anime studio, the trade paper reported.

In addition, several video-game publishers are vying for rights to the character, with the first game expected to hit stores in 2004. Russell will be involved in the video game, including doing motion capture and voice work.
