Re: Kurt Russell Not Happy About Escape Remake

Sounds like a bit of an ego trip.  Although, personally, I don't want to see another remake any time soon.

Re: Kurt Russell Not Happy About Escape Remake

indeed its an ego trip but honestly its the only role hes relaly known for.

Re: Kurt Russell Not Happy About Escape Remake

I heard a rumor that he was gonna play Snake in a Metal Gear Solid movie

Re: Kurt Russell Not Happy About Escape Remake

yeah heard that rumor to, would be a great role for him.

Re: Kurt Russell Not Happy About Escape Remake

He's not happy about another guy playing his most famous character. If it was a remake and he was chosen to play Snake again, he wouldn't mind.

I agree, no remake! (As if someone cares)

Re: Kurt Russell Not Happy About Escape Remake

if it was a remake and he was chose to play snake again they may aswell release a digitally enhanced version of the original! that whole article (above) is just one big ego trip! yes it was a very good performance and im sure it was very inspiring (snake from metal gear solid was purely based on pliskin therefore it would be a perfect role for him!) but at the end of the day a remake is the same movie through someone else's eyes and in my opinion if those eyes think they've found someone good enough if not better to play the role than i welcome that! (big thumbs up)

Re: Kurt Russell Not Happy About Escape Remake

Nathan Fillion could pull off Snake Pliskin no problem.
Val Kilmer could do it too buff up add scars yep:)
I enjoyed Mr. Russel's rendition.
