Red Dawn Cast Photo

Well what do we have here! It looks like The Daily Blam (via SlashFilm) has found a new photo for the Red Dawn remake that was supposed to be out this year but was delayed due to MGM's bankruptcy. Directed by stuntman and second unit director Dan Bradley, it was originally scheduled to hit in September. Below are 9 brave souls who fight against the "foreign" invaders. Chris Hemsworth and Josh Peck play the brothers Jed and Matt Eckert, roles originally played by Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen. Also seen in the cast: Josh Hutcherson, Adrianne Palicki, Isabel Lucas, Edwin Hodge and Connor Cruise. I still really want to see this!

I guess the good news is that The Daily Blam says, "the film is one of three already completed projects that will be released in 2011," so we can expect to see it sometime this year! As for the plot, well IMDb says that "a group of teenagers look to save their town from an invasion of Chinese and Russian soldiers" so it's still an invasion from the East this time. Apparently the group is still called the "Wolverines" - or at least they damn well better be. I'm really looking forward to this, we posted set photos last year, and it just seems like it could be an awesome remake. We'll let you know when MGM finally sets a release date for it. Stay tuned!

    The new Red Dawn cast looks like a joke, like they're holding guns for an Old Timey Photograph. The old cast looks (and was) badass: Guns over shoulders, casual, stroking a launcher, who gives an eff attitude....man, kids these days, they dont know what "cool" is...

    The remake photo looks like a high school theater production.
  • Dan The Man
    I have it under good advisement that Mr. TOM CRUISE has footed the distribution bill!!!!!
  • Bob
    Love the diverse cast..it mirrors demographics PERFECTLY....the producers will at least get points for being "politically correct". (rolls eyes and then throws up)
  • Yossarian
    Yeah Bob, because films are just so much better when everyone is White, right? Honestly, if there's ONE non-white, he's a 'token'. Several non-white faces = 'PC diversity'. So the only way to please folks is if they are all White or all Black? Or do you have a better solution? Nope, didn't think so.

    I am now reading that the politically correct MGM is making the invaders in the new film, North Korean, so as not to anger our creditors and fine friends, the Chinese. For that reason alone, I hope the remake is a bust. No guts or backbone to be found anywhere these days!
  • Svzombies
    Please see it! Everyone!! You will love the epicness of it all! They are called the wolverines and it's North Korea who invades. That's all I can say. Love it!
