Director John Carpenter, producer Debra Hill and actor Kurt Russell will resurrect 'Snake Plissken', in a new animated feature film in the style of "Princess Monoke" and "Akira."

"We want to take Japanese sensibility and combine that with Western storytelling," said Hill.

The film will be executive produced by Carpenter and Hill in partnership with a Japanese anime company. Carpenter and company are also teaming up with Hurricane Entertainment to develop a comic book series following Snake's adventures, dubbed "John Carpenter's Snake Plissken Chronicles", premiering simultaneously with MGM Home Entertainment's special edition DVD "Escape From New York". Kurt Russell has also agreed to voice 'Snake' for the animated movie, plus a video game. The game itself will include live footage of Russell, filmed through motion capture.

"When we made the original film in 1981, there was no video or DVD or video games," said Hill. "I look at the movie industry at large today and most movies are in some way branded, whether they're spinoffs of a comic book, video game or novel or a sequel to a film franchise. We've done two movies ... and now want to relaunch Snake Plissken back into the vernacular of pop culture ... we introduced a lot of legends in the first two films, and with the comics, novels, video games and anime, we'll be able to explore some of these things ... how did Snake lose his eye? What happened in the Battle of Cleveland or at the Battle of Leningrad? What is New Las Vegas? We'll explore these stories ..."
