    I was watching Escape From New York and Escape From L.A.
    today and I was thinking about the possibilty of a
    third film in the series. I think they could do one
    in Las Vegas,Mexico City,or even Miami. Anyone else
    here who would like a sequel?.

    I forget who, but someone recently acquired the rights to Snake Plissken's character and is going to make videogames that will be similar in nature to the movies.

    Argh!

    This thread topic should have a question mark at the end!

    Even though I really dislike Escape from L.A., I'd love to see J.C. and K.R. give it one more spin!

    The first issue of the comic is out, with the second coming out in a week or two. It's a bi-monthly serial, though, so I'm waiting for the collection.

    Carpenter, Hill, and Russell are hoping the comic and games and such create enough interest for them to get Escape From Earth off the ground. Of course, there was going to be an Escape From New York TV series a few years back, but they couldn't pre-sell it to enough markets in the US.

    Yeah, a new video game is coming out with Kurt Russell providing the voice of Snake, and Carpenter and Debra Hill will be colaborating on the story.

    I'd like to see another as well but without Carpenter.

    Sorry, but he longer has it.

    I always thought the ending of Escape From L.A. was going to set up more movies with Snake travelling the post-apocalyptic landscape. I think the whole "city/prison" thing is played out. The character is strong enough to carry a different kind of movie.
