The remake of Red Dawn is still in the works, but there have been a few move stills released of Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson and Josh Peck in action. The stills show the trio preparing for the guerilla warfare that is going on in the city that they are living in. This all star case will be joined by more talented actors such as Connor Cruise, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Adrianne Palicki and Isabel Lucas. The original script written for the Red Dawn film was to feature China attacking the United States, but producers decided to change the invaders from Chinese to Koreans.
You are probably wondering why the producers have decided to take a different route. The reason was that they didn’t want to offend any company that they might work with on this film. Hutcherson explains, “Originally it was the Chinese. And then there was the thought that the Chinese own most of the companies making movies and that maybe it wasn’t the best idea in the world.”
The official plot synopsis for the film (posted originally on PerezHilton.com) “In Red Dawn, a city in Washington state awakens to the surreal sight of foreign paratroopers dropping from the sky – shockingly, the U.S. has been invaded and their hometown is the initial target. Quickly and without warning, the citizens find themselves prisoners and their town under enemy occupation. Determined to fight back, a group of young patriots seek refuge in the surrounding woods, training and reorganizing themselves into a guerilla group of fighters. Taking inspiration from their high school mascot, they call themselves the Wolverines, banding together to protect one another, liberate their town from its captors, and take back their freedom.”
The film was scheduled to be released on November of 2010, but due to MGM’s financial issues the film could not be released. Now the film will be released this year in November if everything goes good with the financial situation.
