Last week we reported that Jeremy Renner was “close” to nabbing the role of Snake Plissken in “The Crazies” director Breck Eisner’s remake of “Escape from New York”.
The Wrap has an update: No deal. They say Renner isn’t close to landing the role as previously reported, and no offer has been extended. The reboot is still in its early stages, though the possibility that New Line may extend the offer to Renner down the line remains.
(Especially if “Mission Impossible 4″ proves to be a real big hit for Renner…)
So, the search for Plissken continues…
