I recently noticed the following blurb on IMDb in regards to Plissken's character and another character created by John Carpenter. From IMDb:
Interestingly the character of Napoleon Wilson would essentially reappear as Snake Pliskin in another John Carpenter film Escape from New York (1981)
Am I misunderstanding this information? How could Napoleon Wilson from Assault on Precinct 13 be "reappearing" as Snake Plissken?
I know that homage is paid to Wilson in Escape from L.A., when Snake Plissken asks commander Malloy for a smoke using the same line that Wilson uses repeatedly in Assault on Precinct 13 of
Got a smoke?
Is there any evidence from filmmakers that the character of Napoleon Wilson reappeared as Snake Plissken?
