Los Angeles - Hollywood actors Jason Statham and Tom Hardy are reportedly top contenders to star in the remake of "Escape From New York".

The original was directed by John Carpenter and the action-thriller starred Kurt Russell as the eye-patch wearing convict.

Either Statham or Hardy will play the lead role of Snake Plissken in Studio Canal's remake of the 1981 classic.

"Statham is the type of actor who has the physical attributes and screen presence to reprise Snake. He has a proven track record as a leading man and would do a great job," quoted a source as saying.

However, producers are also said to be impressed by Hardy's portrayal of the villainous Bane in last year's summer blockbuster "The Dark Knight Rises".

"Hardy was immense in "The Dark Knight Rises" and deserves to get a break in a top role. This could put him firmly in the A-list. Studio Canal wants to make sure they get one of the two men before the summer," the source added.
