Josh Hutcherson and the cast of Red Dawn strike a pose in the first photo of the reboot to hit the internet (see the full cast shot inside.)
The film has been completed for a while, but has lingered without release because of the studio’s (MGM) financial problems. Now that MGM is in chapter 11 (which is bankruptcy, but allows the company to reform, restructure and pay off creditors slowly,) Dawn may see the light of day in theaters later this year.
The 80s original version of the movie (starring Charlie Sheen, Lea Thompson, Jennifer Grey and the late Patrick Swayze,) was about a band of teenagers who came together to fight the Russians invading America. The new reboot stars Hutcherson, Connor Cruise, Chris Hemsworth, Isabelle Lucas and Josh Peck who fight the fictional Chinese take over of the U.S.

Once again, Hollywood is going to the well and committing to yet another ‘reboot’ - this time ‘Red Dawn’ is getting the update with a younger cast and a lot of hopes on money-making success. Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey and Charlie Sheen were part of the original cast of teens who fight back after the US is invaded by communists.
Josh Peck will take on Sheen’s Matt Eckertt and his brother Jed Eckertt (originated by Swayze) will be played by Chris Hemsworth from this summer’s hot hot hot ‘Star Trek’ movie. Adrianne Palicki from ‘Friday Night Lights’ joins in Grey’s role of Toni Mason. So far, Peck (from his years as on Nickelodeon’s ‘Drake and Josh’ ) is the highest profile star attached to the 2010 version. Still more casting news to come.
