Wont hold my breath for this. Not even John Carpenter could do justice in remaking this film (Escape from LA). Part of the charm of this move was at the time NY was actually a dangerous place to live in so at its base level there was a connection of a ruined city scape overrun by criminals.

New York isn't like that anymore and the idea of it turning into some Mad Max hell hole is beyond laughable imo.
