Deadline. Joel Silver is teaming up with StudioCanal to create a new and exciting franchise based around Snake Plissken.
The main plan is to start fresh with new material an set itself for a trilogy of films, however it was mentioned that the first film is set to be a Snake Plissken origin story which has been compared to "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes". A writer is yet yo be hired, and the film is in very early stages of discussions so I doubt we will hear anything about the project this year, if we do expect it to closer to Winter. There is already a few names being thrown about for the role of Snake, included are Gerard Butler, Jeremy Renner and Tom Hardy.
