Seriously, they could shoot on location for cheap and even get tax credits for blowing up shacks that Detroit can't afford to.

Kurt Russell, Lee Van Cleef, Ernest Borgnine, Adrienne Barbeau, Isaac Hayes, Harry Dean, Stanton, Donald Pleasance - fantastic cast.

Trivia: The director, John Carpenter, was married to Adrienne at the time.
Season Hubley, who played the hot blonde in the Chock Full O' Nuts that was taken by the crazies, was Kurt's wife at the time.

Kurt said first scene with Van Cleef he instantly started talking like Eastwood, he couldn't help it.

Attention. You are now entering the Debarkation Area.

No talking. No smoking.

Follow the orange line to the Processing Area.

The next scheduled departure to the prison is in two hours. You now have the option to terminate and be cremated on the premises.

If you elect this option, notify the Duty Sergeant in your Processing Area.

Fun fact,  at the beginning of Escape from LA  Snake is wearing the same costume from NY, after 12 years,  it still fit him perfectly and they made no alteration to it.

The bio on Ox Baker - gladiator in the ring with Plisskin.  Worth a quick scan/read.  
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ox_Baker
Seems like a rather accomplished man in his chosen field of endeavor.
youtube interview, interesting though a little amateurish.

Back when Doug (Baker) was wrestling in Tampa...  in the late 70s/early 80s...  my buddy and I would go to the matches.

Ox would hang out in the parking lot before matches and BS with anyone that wasn't afraid to walk up to him.

In the ring he was a monster, outside the ring it was like talking to your cousin.  Nice guy and intelligent.

But I'd sure hate to have him mad at me.

My Dad was stationed at MacDill during the late 70s. He took me to see a few of those Mid-south matches.  I was too young to know it at the time but I was getting a chance to see some real legends go at it.

Sadly, I've read the same thing. As with most remakes, my reaction is, "Why?"



Not that EFNY is perfect. It's not. However, it's biggest failings, IMO, were simply budgetary. Having a fatter wallet isn't a reason to remake a movie.




I think of a writer, or a director, or an actor, saying, "I have an idea for a different take on Snake Plissken."




Well then, it's not going to be Snake Plissken, is it?




Then I think of a writer, or a director, or an actor, saying, "I'm not going to mess with Snake. We're going to play him just like Kurt Russell did."




Well then, why bother?

So is a large amount of explosives strategically placed on the San Andreas Fault. Break California off so it's isolated from the USA, then it can be the separate communist country it seems to want to be.

Is there any evidence that points to that actually working?



And how much explosives?

I have the novelization of it.   Some fun backstory there.  Snake lost his eye when one of his goggles cracked and the poison gas killed it.   While in the processing center, they stuck him in the Castration Room to think it all over.  They had a metal box that they placed over your groin and wham, no more balls.   They did this to inmates before turning them loose inside.  

It was a great film and concept, and very dark and gritty for its time.
