Special Ed DVD Cpver fo the Original

If anybody was still hoping the RED DAWN remake was just a bad dream, well this is the proverbial pinch. Casting is moving forward with the gang of rebel youngsters getting fully cast to surround Chris Hemsworth, Adrienne Palicki and Josh Peck already onboard since June.

Entertainment Weekly rolled out in exclusivity who will be stepping in for Howell, Thompson, Savage and Dalton. They will respectively be Josh Hutcherson (JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH), Isabel Lucas (TRANSFORMERS 2), Edwin Hodge (Fox's "Mental") and last but not least Connor Cruise, son of Tom.

No indication yet on a fill-in for Powers Boothe's military mentor to the original's kids, nor if the Kurt Russell rumor had any shred of truth. An announcement probably will be made on that one soon though, with production scheduled to begin next month. Should they ask any of the original's guys for that part?

Extra Tidbit: I hope they don't try to copy that ending scene where a bloodied Swayze walks off with a half-dead Sheen in his arms. Swayze owns that scene.

I don't really think this is needed, the original Red Dawn is a good film and doesn't need to be remade. But with today's weapon, and if the film is set in modern time, it has potential, Ill wait and see how this'll turn ot.

One thing what is with the all the hating on young actors, people were hating on Shia Labeouf, and now Shaggy on Josh Peck. I mean what is there not to like, he a pretty good p and coming actor who has potential. The Wackness was a great movie and Peck was also very good

i like Josh Peck. He's come a long way from being the little fat kid on Nickelodeon. It's also nice to see Josh Hutcherson break away from the Walden Media family shit.

Re-make Hell

Great....let's see...how about a remake of all John Hughes films using CGI. Or On Golden Pond in 3D? How about Dr. Detroit, Dreamscape, Remo Williams, Footloose, Last American Virgin,Star 80, and a Valley Girl sequel starring Nicholas Cage to come back to reprise his role using CGI 3D all rated PG to make more family friendly? Waiting for more original films to be made...(looking forward to District 9)

This movie made perfect sense to me when I saw it the first time as a child. When the Soviet Union invades the U.S., the only ones who can stop them are a bunch of teenagers hiding in the woods. Sure.

I think Sarah Palin and the country of Alaska should invade the US in this one. Thoughts?

Connor Cruise makes me not want to see this already. Like there wasn't any struggling actor who could have fit in there.
