Isabel Lucas, Three More for Red Dawn Remake

19 Comments

Four more Wolverines!!!! Ahem. News from THR is that four more actors have joined the upcoming remake of John Milius’ 1984 tale of homeland invasion “Red Dawn”. Of the four names, I’m only familiar with one of them: Isabel Lucas (below), who was in this year’s mega hit “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”. Remember her? The girl with the smoldering eyes who attempted to seduce Sam Witwicky, but turned out to be a killer ‘bot? That’s her.

The other three names are Josh Hutcherson, Connor Cruise and Edwin Hodge. They join a cast that already includes leads Chris Hemsworth as a returning Iraq War Marine who gets into the thick of the action, Josh Peck as his star athlete little brother, and Adrianne Palicki as the love interest.

Hutcherson will play Robert (the C. Thomas Howell role), the group’s tech geek, while Lucas will be Erica (the Lea Thompson role), the high school head cheerleader and girlfriend of Peck’s character, who is locked up in an internment camp after the invasion. Cruise is Daryl, the son of the town mayor and Robert’s best friend, while Hodge will play Danny, described as “the coolest kid in school” and star wide receiver who helps establish the resistance against the invaders — the Chinese and Russians this time around.

Former “Bourne” guys Dan Bradley will direct from a script by Jeremy Passmore and Carl Ellsworth. The actors are currently all being shipped away to Hollywood military boot camp, and filming is expected to start next month for a September 24, 2010 release.

    They have got to be kidding…I’m a fan of pretty women and all, but you can’t put a freaking model in a movie that’s supposed to be real. They’re going to completely obliterate the original and insult all the fans’ memories with these wanna-be kid actors who will sit and act like its Tropical Thunder when it’s supposed to be real. Who’s next….Shy Lebeauf as Patrick Swazy?

    The plot: Commies invade America and it is a good thing! Free health care for everybody and redistribution of wealth and everything else. The end: Chavez is crowned to be the Secretary General of North-American SSR, the main characters cannot hold back the tears of joy.

    That’s what’s gonna com out from today’s Hollywood.

    They should have named it Obama-dawn.

    Plot; The socialist take control and obolish the constitution, confiscate arms from the law abiding citizens, freedom of speech gone, secret police round up citizens that are negitive to the goverment and use terrorist type laws to detain indefinately. Then the citizen that resist go underground to fight for freedom.

      But they already made that movie – it was called The Presidency of George W. Bush.

      Actually I guess the arms-confiscation wasn’t in that one. Perhaps if there’s a sequel?

        I thought Bush was a fascist, not a socialist. No matter; fascists, communists and socialists are all the same and GWB was none of the above. Obama is a fascist; it’s he who wants the government to control everthing.
