Red Dawn remake to feature Kurt Russell – Go Wolverines!

Posted by LiveFor on July 25, 2009

Kurt Russell is always cool in my book – Escape from New York, The Thing, Big Trouble in Little China, Tombstone and many more – he is cool and knows how to kick ass. exclusively learned today at the San Diego Comic-Con that Kurt Russell is talks to star in Red Dawn, the MGM remake scheduled for a September 24, 2010 release.

To be directed by Dan Bradley, the war film’s cast includes Chris Hemsworth (Star Trek, upcoming Thor), Josh Peck and Adrianne Palicki (upcoming Legion).

The original Red Dawn was the Cold War brainchild of writer-director John Milius, who devised a World War III invasion of America by the Soviets and Cubans. The film followed the scrappy insurgency of a group of Midwestern teenagers who take on their high school mascot name — “Wolverines!” — as a rallying cry of resistance.

I wasn’t that bothered about this remake, but now that Russell may be involved it suddenly got interesting. We just have to find out what role he will be playing. I wonder if he will be leader of the bad guys?
