Morgan as The Comedian

As much as I hate to remind myself that someone's remaking RED DAWN, I have to admit Jeffrey Dean Morgan is a perfect match for a "young" Powers Boothe, so having that dude come on board as the mentor to the kids is somewhat good news.

Talking to the folks of Coming Soon, Morgan not only confirmed his involvement in the film for the part Boothe played in the original, but downright confessed his ecstasy in having nabbed that role. "I just love that f**king movie, ever since I was a kid," Morgan enthused. "I guess I'm more or less the old Powers Boothe character, I'll be the old guy in it, which is cool."

The actor tries to comfort us all by referring to rookie director Dan Bradley as "the real thing" and "A real good action director". I like Morgan and trust him if he gives the director thumbs up, but...not convinced about the whole thing still. What does everybody else think?

Green Arrow, good call!

Yeah I agree with the both casting notions. Plus I still think he'd be the best LOBO.

I havent been following this film's updates really, but I was wondering ... If they change the setting, and its not about Russians invading the US - I dont see why the Russians would, but I dont know maybe they kept that part, but if not and some other country is invading the US - is it even relevant to call the film Red Dawn ?

They've switched it so they're being invaded by the Chinese this time (although the synopsis says that Russians will show up and aid them toward the end). Since China's flag is predominantly red, and red symbolizes communism in general, and China is the last major communist country, I think the title still works pretty well.
