Red Dawn Remake May Finally Hit Theaters Sometime Next Year

The long-delayed remake of the 1984 invasion film Red Dawn — it was first targeted for November 2010 release — will at last open sometime next year, thanks to a new deal between FilmDistrict and MGM.

All together now: “Wolverines!” Don’t over-do it, though; while 24 Frames reports an agreement is being hashed out, there’s no word on an actual release date.

Starring Chris Hemsworth, Josh Peck, Adrianne Palicki and Josh Hutcherson, the film updates the Cold War classic, replacing the Soviet and Cuban invaders with the North Koreans. Well, first producers replaced the Soviets with the Chinese, but once they realized offending the government of China might hurt the film’s international distribution, the villains were changed — through the magic of digital technology — to the North Koreans.

    Screw it, the original Red Dawn sucked. If it must be remade, can we do it as Animorphs the animated series

    Really, North Koreans?  Is that a vacuuming noise I hear because this is going to suck.

    IF the original RED DAWN sucked then you sir were born after 1984 and  cant possibly understand why it was a great flick.

    Just like Rambo & Rocky IV were insanely awsome movies too.

    Pitch Black was just an ok movie. 
    Chronicles was actualy pretyy damn awsome all around.

    Going back to the pitch black feel is a total step backwards i think.  That type of movie has been done to death too.

    I hope Ridick III  is more like the 2nd movie
