"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Yahoo! Movies has premiered the first poster for Red Dawn, the long-delayed MGM remake of the 1984 Cold War classic.
Originally set for release in 2010 but shelved because of the studio’s financial problems, the film stars Chris Hemsworth, Josh Peck, Josh Hutcherson, Adrianne Palicki and Isabel Lucas as a group of small-town teens who band together to fight North Korean invaders (in the original, it was the Soviet Union with its Cuban and Nicaraguan allies; in the remake it was initially China, until executives realized that might create distribution problems).
Directed by Dan Bradley, Red Dawn opens Nov. 21.
