Two Names Join Red Dawn Remake

From The Hollywood Reporter

Josh Peck and Adrianne Palicki have been cast in MGM/UA’s remake of “Red Dawn,” set to begin filming in September. They join the already cast Chris Hemsworth in the story of a group of teenagers who form an impromptu insurgency when their town is invaded by Chinese and Russian soldiers.

Peck will play Matt Eckert — the role originated by Charlie Sheen — the hotheaded younger brother of Hemsworth’s Jed Eckert and star quarterback of their Spokane high school football team. Palicki will play Toni, the role first inhabited by Jennifer Grey. She’s a tough fighter the brothers encounter who develops romantic feelings for Jed, a Marine home on leave and the group’s unofficial leader.

Dan Bradley, a stunt coordinator and second-unit director on “The Bourne Ultimatum” and “Quantum of Solace,” will direct the revamp based on the 1984 Cold War-era film co-written and directed by John Milius. Jeremy Passmore and Carl Ellsworth penned the updated screenplay.

Contrafilm’s Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson are producing, and Vince Newman is executive producing. The film is scheduled to hit theaters Sept. 24, 2010.

Peck, who is repped by UTA and the Collective, most recently appeared in “The Wackness,” “Drillbit Taylor” and “What Goes Up.” He again has provided the voice of Eddie in the animated sequel “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs,” which Fox releases July 1.

Palicki, repped by UTA and Anonymous Content, co-stars on “Friday Night Lights.” She next appears in the Screen Gems thriller “Legion” in January.
