Will there be an Escape From New York 3? Here’s what we know about a sequel:

Escape From New York 3

John Carpenter is a legendary director, and he collaborated with Kurt Russell on many occasions, with Escape from New York being one of the best they worked on. They did a sequel called Escape from L.A. in 1996, which didn’t do as well, but has since developed a cult following. But will there be an Escape From New York 3? Or do we have to settle for the Snake Plissken adventures we already have? Here’s what we know at the time of writing:


What is Escape From New York about?

In the year of 1997, (which was the future when the movie came out in 1981) when the U.S. president crashes into Manhattan, which is now a big maximum security prison, a convicted bank robber called Snake Plissken is sent to rescue him.


Will there be another sequel to Escape From New York?

YES! There has been talk for many years about another entry in the Escape From series, and it was recently confirmed that Radio Silence was working on a continuation of the series. Considering their track record with the Scream franchise, fans should be very excited for this. 


What could Escape From New York 3 be about?

From what Radio Silence has revealed about the project, this will be the continuation of the story from the first two movies, but there is no confirmation on whether Kurt Russell will be returning to the role of Snake Plissken. But it’s hard to imagine anyone else in the role. Stay tuned for more information! 


When could the sequel be released?

Since Radio Silence confirmed they were working on a sequel at the end of 2022, things have gone quiet on the Escape From New York front, and they have since gone on to work on another project. So, don’t expect the movie to be released before 2025. 

Of course, this is all speculation, and if anything changes, we’ll be sure to update you!
