Len Wiseman to direct ‘New York’

Len Wiseman (“Live Free or Die Hard”) has decided to “Escape From New York,” and is set to direct the New Line remake, which will star Gerard Butler and be produced by Neal Moritz. Wiseman’s in final negotiations with the studio, which won bidding in March for a package that included Butler following the stellar launch of “300.” “Black Hawk Down” screenwriter Ken Nolan is writing the script. Butler’s portraying Snake Plissken, the convict and war hero who’s sent into a futuristic Manhattan — which has been turned into a giant maximum security prison — to rescue the president of the U.S. after his plane is knocked down by terrorists.
