Red Dawn Comes to the Motor City

The Red Dawn Remake is being filmed right here in Detroit...thanks to the 40% tax credit, Michigan is really starting to attract real Hollywood productions. They are shooting right outside my door for the next 3 days. This remake of the Patrick Swayze film (who just lost this past week) is cast with 5 new young hot Hollywood actors. Chris Hemsworth stars as a returning Iraq War Marine who gets into the thick of the action, with Josh Peck starring as his athlete little brother, and Adrianne Palicki as the love interest Isabel Lucas, who was in this year’s mega hit “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” will star as Erica (the Lea Thompson role), a high school head cheerleader and girlfriend of Peck’s character, who is locked up in an internment camp after the invasion.The other leads are Josh Hutcherson, Connor Cruise (Tom's adopted son) and Edwin Hodge. Hutcherson will play Robert (the C. Thomas Howell role), the group’s tech geek. Cruise is Daryl, the son of the town mayor and Robert’s best friend, while Hodge will play Danny, described as “the coolest kid in school” and star wide receiver who helps establish the resistance against the invaders — the Chinese and Russians this time around. Jeffrey Dean Morgan also will star. Although not a household name, I think Morgan is one of the best leading men in Hollywood today.....this guy has it all. I think he is going to be very very big in a very short heard it here first and I don't like to brag, but when I see it....I am very rarely wrong. Former “Bourne” director Dan Bradley will direct from a script by Jeremy Passmore and Carl Ellsworth. Stay tuned for some on the set video. I will be out with my new Ipod Nano Spy video cam tomorrow.
