Although remaking John Carpenter's 'Escape From New York' is the kind of thing that makes us quietly shake our heads and contemplate developing a drinking problem, we'll be the first to admit that sliding an actor like Jason Statham or Tom Hardy into the lead role will go a long way toward alleviating the pain.

And who does the studio want to star as their jungle king? Why, their favorite 'Dark Knight Rises' villain, of course.
It's been a busy time for Tom Hardy. It took him a while to recover from the failure of 'Star Trek: Nemesis,' but he's now a pretty hot property after 'Inception' and 'The Dark Knight Rises.' And it looks like he's lining up to play Mount Everest mountain climber George Mallory.
