Radio Silence — whose real names are Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, along with producer Chad Villela — will be directing the long-awaited reboot of the 1981 action classic Escape From New York, originally directed by horror master John Carpenter. The filmmakers are now attached to the reboot film for 20th Century Studios.

The trio is also slated to produce alongside partners Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman at The Picture Company. Carpenter will also return to play a pivotal role in the reboot, serving as executive producer. Only a few additional details have been revealed, and there is no information on the cast, reportedly, the search for a screenwriter is currently underway.

The original Escape From New York film starred Kurt Russell as Snake Plissken, a special forces soldier who must rescue the President of the United States from a crime-filled Manhattan that has been turned into a fully-secure prison. The film has an ensemble cast of late 1970s film icons, additionally starring Ernest Borgnine, Lee Van Cleef, Donald Pleasence, and Isaac Hayes, among others. The plot of the upcoming film remains to be seen. Notably, New Line Cinema attempted to develop a remake in 2007, though the project never took off.

No release window or the start of production for Escape From New York has been announced.
