RED DAWN Remake Finds Scribes

Carl Ellsworth has been hired to write the remake of the 1984 film RED DAWN.
The original RED DAWN, directed by John Millus followed the lifes of teens the Midwest who fight back against the Russians and Cubans who've invaded America. Patrick Sawyze starred with C. Thomas Howell.

Ellsworth is updating the script to current times; "The tone is going to be very intense, very much keeping in mind the post-9/11 world that we're in," says Ellsworth, who was 11 when the original was released. "As 'Red Dawn' scared the heck out of people in 1984, we feel that the world is kind of already filled with a lot of paranoia and unease, so why not scare the hell out of people again?"

Dan Bradley is attached to direct stepping up from his role as second unit director on such films as "The Bourne Ultimatum," and "Quantum of Solace."
