Red Dawn Gilroy

Jun. 18, 2009by: Omar Aviles

Tony Gilroy Just a couple days ago, we told you about Adrienne Palicki and Josh Peck joining Chris Hemsworth in the upcoming RED DAWN remake and today, "Latino Review" has gotten word that Bourne trilogy scribe and all-around bad ass writer Tony Gilroy has been contracted by MGM to rewrite the script, which is credited to Carl Ellsworth and Jeremy Passmore. The 1984 John Milus original centered a group of high school teens who band together to fend off an invading Russian and Cuban force. It seems like the remake won't be using a contemporary setting or updating the story in any way. The commie bastards get what's coming to them on September 24th, 2010 with production set to start in the Fall.

Extra Tidbit: Gilroy's father is a Pulitzer Prize winning playwright.

the original is a classic in my opinion. great cast and chemistry, script, action and all. the other big part of Red Dawn is the amazing score by the late Basil Poliedourus. There is no way they are going to match that score. . . ever!

They're gonna have to be contemporary with the forces that are attacking.... One of the attack nations in the original film -would still work as an aggressor against the U.S. in current times. Gonna be interesting, loved the original 1984 film.

Red Dawn freaked me out as a kid so I'm only marginally excited for this film. Mostly because of childhood memories. What can I say? I was paranoid.
